Saw two bucks yesterday that had both dropped and each had about an inch of regrowth. Border unit.

#793012 What to do ,11 points ,Res.

I would put in for one of the December rifle mule deer hunts south of the ditch and go and scout each December until you draw it. I'd have to look again but I think you're pretty close to drawing unit 27 December mule deer. Don't draw this year, then go and scout and find out what the deer are doing this time of year. I don't think the genetics are as good as the 12's or 13's but you have the potential to kill a good deer still and have a good, long hunt.

after 2 days of getting up at 4:00 AM to chase big, long bearded thunder chickens, my daughter got it done just outside of camp Saturday afternoon.  8.5 inch beard at 18 yards.  hopefully the two BIG birds we saw make it through to next year.

I'm jealous.

#785318 Exo vs outdoorsman

Posted by creed_az_88 on April 01 2018 - 06:08 AM

There's an exo in the classifieds if you don't want to wait. I was torn between the exo and a kifaru. I went with kifaru and it has been amazing. The research that I did left me feeling like both are great packs and some preferred the comfort of the exo when it's not fully loaded but it seemed like most guys who have ever had both of them loaded to 80lbs plus preffered the Kifaru. I've had my kifaru loaded heavier than a guy would really want to ever be loaded and it handled the weight like a dream. I'm sold on the Kifaru, especially with all the different options they have, but I wouldn't hesitate to try an exo either. I liked how their bag was layed out when I looked at it.

#785237 Tell me about crappie fishing

Posted by creed_az_88 on March 31 2018 - 01:16 PM

Never had perch but the boys I know from Michigan prefer bluegill over walleye or perch and they're hardcore walleye fisherman. Where does split tail rank?

#785190 Tell me about crappie fishing

I'm not sure what's better crappie or walleye.

Crappie is dang good but walleye takes the cake for sure.

It's a toss up between .280 ai and a 3000 psi airbow.

#783867 Wildland Firefighting Jobs

Posted by creed_az_88 on March 22 2018 - 11:30 AM

I would check with all of the small volunteer departments in your area and and even all around the state. He could be a volunteer on multiple departments and be eligible to travel with them out of state. He would be working on an engine rather than a hand crew but some fire time is better than no fire time. When I started I worked solely on an engine for our local department and as I got exposed to more people and more fires I started getting resourced out to hand crews. We had a bunch of guys that lived in different towns that occasionally went out with our engines. If I would have stayed in the game I could have worked for multiple hand crews after only one fire season because of all the different people I met and crews I worked with. Getting on with a volunteer department or semi volunteer department could also be a foot in the door for structure fire fighting also if he ever wanted to go that route.
