Packing my bags...

Recommended Posts

After 4 years of applying, we just found out we drew a limited quota muley tag in WY. We are pumped. Been watching the weather channel, and WY has been recieiving lots of precip this spring, should make for good antler growth.

Now the fun part, planning, packing, shooting, scouting trips. Going to be some sleepless nights in the next few months.

Our trip is planned for the end of October, which is the rifle season, but we can purchase an archery tag if we want to go out in Sept and scout/hunt with stick n string.

Congrats fireman. I shot a big mulie in MT a couple years ago and it was the highlight of a very long hunting career. The favorite part of my pre-hunt was squeezing the trigger on that big 300WSM over and over again. Still can't get enough of that.

Good luck!!!

Now that I figured out how to put pics on here, I can post my 2009 Wyoming DIY public land mulie.

Not the biggest on the mountain, but will be the biggest on my wall. He is a 150" 3 pt with eyeguards.

    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
    • The window on AIX that I read Usenet News on was....   I started on computers with punch cards, then moved up to a 2260 and MTMT (multiple terminal monitor task) which was an IBM Rochester homegrown thing for running terminals attached to the 360/65 we had at the time.   Actual first computer I ever used was a CDC 1604 at the U of MN.....
    • There I might have made it a little easier to read😁    Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
