    No batteries. It was on a boat bought new in 2018. Probably has 20 trips to the lake. No hour meter on the trolling motor.

    Outdoorsmans bino adapter question

    I use the small. This allows me to just leave it on all the time and remove the whole adapter from the tripod through the plate. The small fits in the swaro case attached. Eliminates the chance of misplacing the adapter when separated from the binos.

    20B December Rifle Mule Deer

    There are good bucks in 20B but you have to look. Archery hunters were definitely a factor last year. On this hunt you will face them every day being so close to the valley and expect them to blow a deer or two you are looking at. I did the same for my son last year giving him my December 20b tag and was out archery hunting the day after he killed in 20b along with multiple days after that. I know 20b well from pig hunting every year, so that is why I put in for the unit. It can be tough with all the Jeep and atv traffic. I would prefer 21 but 20b worked out. I know 17b we’ll also and put in for that unit as well. There are some big bucks in there and not near as much traffic, which makes it nice. For this unit you trade drive time for less atv and Jeep traffic, along with less archery hunters. Either unit has opportunity, you just have to wait for the bucks to start moving. Good luck and let me know if you need any help.

    Anyone else get their Stimulus Check?

    Got mine just in time for turkey!!
  13. My boys play it every day. First thing I hear when I get home is what they killed and if it was with a bow or rifle. Game is a good teaching tool, including the fact other hunters can be challenging sometimes.

    Opening Day Buck

    When I found out I drew a late rifle mule deer tag I knew it was an opportunity to shoot a good buck but I decided I would rather watch my son give it a whirl, so I donated the tag to him. We made a few scouting trips and were real familiar with the area from multiple pig hunts over the years. Last week we saw multiple does but no rutting action or bucks in the area, but we knew they would come as they always do with time. Seems like the hunt was here in no time and we were loading up for a quick day hunt with a plan to spend most of our time hunting after Christmas. We headed out opening morning and the full moon had the deer bedded early. We found a couple does and three herds of pigs. The rest of the day was slow until the sun started to set. As the sun was setting we found two sets of does but no buck. We made one more move to a place bucks had been in the past and we quickly found a rutting buck with two does. His neck was swoll up and he was tearing up the trees. Once I saw the front view and how wide he was I knew it was game time. My son took one look at the buck and said “let’s shoot him.” We closed the distance to 340 yards and he put him down. There was no shrinkage when we walked up to him and he was bigger than I thought he was going to be from the quick view I had. I couldn’t be happier or prouder of my son for staying calm when it counts and willing to work hard to get it done. My younger son was there as well without a complaint and he can’t wait for his turn. Big thanks as always to my buddy Brian for all he does for me and my boys. We have had a lot of success together and can’t wait until the next one. Next year he said he wants a coues after shooting two nice mule deer. See how the next chapter goes.

    Looking for Unit 5A info

    I will be helping with 5A cow tags there. It is a great unit and should not be a hard tag to fill. I killed my last two bulls in 5A and spend time up there after the hunt. Bulls should still be talking and have some cows.

    UTV Rifle Carrier/Case?

    I use the one AZ8 posted. It works great in the Ranger. Been on many hunts in some rough country and never had any issues.

    The meet was actually set up last week on Tuesday or Wednesday and you pushed it back waiting on your truck, long before they sold on EBay.

    Had a deal with Phillyd044 to meet today at a set price and he informs me this morning he sold them on EBay for less. Use caution when setting up a deal with him.

    Hunt Draw issue

    It pulled his information up as he has drawn a few times. It is on the second section where it asks if you have a social and you put it in and dots show. I accidentally put mine there. Couldn’t see it and didn’t think about it until after I submitted.
