Figured I would share a few pics from the 2013 season.

 

Season started off for me being asked to be second gun for moose season, buddy drew a tag and had never hunted moose before. Was caught off guard by it a bit as I had only been hunting once and never was able to fill my moose tag a few years back. We packed up and headed north with a truck full of gear and my SXS and trailer. On the first day we had a nice cow come in but was unable to seal the deal on her. Feeling a little down that we missed an opportunity we awoke the next morning exited to give er a go again. Second morning brought cool temps and the call carried well. Only minutes after daylight we had a small bull come charging in and ended up stopping 7 yards from me, put the scope up but he was too close to see lol, squeezed one off by literally pointing the gun at him. Double lung and down he went. Was super fun and hope to go again soon.

Once home a few buds and I were able to get a quick hunt in for some birds. Lots flying and ended up with a five man limit for opening day.imagejpeg_2_zpse1190e0f.jpg20131001_094657_zps679d17e1.jpg20131001_100309_zpsfb2ee322.jpg

 

Monday opening of bow season ended up being a wash but Tuesday was a day that will haunt me for a while. Had a nice 6x6 on cam all fall and had my hopes set on him, well Tues at 1:45 in the afternoon he decided to show himself. Came to full draw and released and watched a 100 gr muzzy buzz the hair off his back. Hunted him and a few other mature bucks all fall but was unable to connect with them. HUNT0535_zps8f30afbc.jpg

Once gun season arrived my father and a few buddys headed to the camp for a week to chase a few nice deer we had on camera around. I hunted for a nice wide 5x5 but was unable to connect on him. The only deer taken that week was a 6 point by my father. He was gratefull to harvest him as he is a meat hunter and enjoys having the meat in the freezer. All in all a great week and good memories.20131102_134207_zps104531f2.jpg20131102_115121_zpseb760c74.jpgHUNT1292_zps55b16789.jpg

 

The rest of gun season I hunted hard for a few mature bucks I had coming in to my stands back home. I was fortunate enough to see 3 mature bucks this season, one missed earlier with the bow and anther ten that provided no shot and a nine that came in a little to late for my peep site. So with only a couple of days left open for me with my work and life schedule I was fortunate enough to harvest a 3 year old eight point. I canned this deer and I must say this is how I will be preparing all big game from now onHUNT0723_zps7edec8fc.jpgHUNT1569_zps032e9388.jpgDSCN0795_zps25c79f40.jpg

With only a few days left of the season I had the budd that took me moose hunting give me a call and ask if he could sit one of my stands as he only had one evening and the next morning to hunt. I gladly said yes and put him on a stand that I had several bucks frequenting along with nine does, being the end of the season I figured something with horns should show. Luck have it a 4 point showed for him after only sitting for one hour. He was pleased and I was happy for him.IMG_1762_zpsfdcdfdb5.jpg

Last thursday I left for the Rockies to go for a hunt for whitetail and elk. This ended up being a very hard hunt as the temps hovered around freezing all week and seemed to keep the deer from moving much. We ended up seeing 13 different bucks and around 30 does, also around 15 cow elk and 2 immature bulls, a heard of Big horn sheep and 4 mulies.  Anyways a few adventures along the way and a few cool things I was able to stumble across. Came across a cat kill that made the hair stand up on my neck, something about those things gives me the creeps.
