    Welcome! You're a great writer and we're always in need of a good story around here. Thanks for posting.

    Desert tourtuse found. Pictures added

    The picture proves the "Sulcata" guesses right. It's an African spurred (or spur-thighed) tortoise. The Latin name is Centrochelys sulcata, and it's often called a sulcata tortoise based on the species name. They can live to be 100. They are also notorious for burrowing deep and winding tunnels. They can tunnel out of fenced yards and jiggle gates until the gate pops open and then they make their rather slow-speed escape. They can be very sweet. I hope the owners are looking for him and I hope you find them! His home could be further away than you think. They make slow but steady progress when they decide to go on a walkabout.

    Beautiful! I've been wondering how the monsoon was down there. Looks nice and green. Thank you for posting.

    Getting home early

    I can imagine the post-incident safety briefing. "Honey, if someone sneaks on to the farm and starts doing chores, don't shoot 'em till they finish!" Seriously though, I'm glad you're ok. You've got the story of a lifetime here.

    I have a doubler for my old Swaro SLC 15s that came with the binos when I bought them 2nd (maybe 3rd) hand 15 years ago. So I'm talking about almost geriatric binoculars. (They were once top of the line, and are still pretty dang good though. I'm just saying that they're old.) Here's my experience. (And my eyeballs are over 50 years old too. So take that into account. Your mileage may vary.) I'd be glassing a extreme distance, and see that gray shape that looks like a bedded coues deer. I'd stare and stare until my eyes started playing tricks on me. Then I'd search through my pack, find the doubler, unscrew the occular eye-cup on the binos, and screw on the doubler. Then look again. Instead of being doubled, it looked like I increased the size of the image by like 5 or 10% while simultaneously degrading the image quality. So most of the time I wished I just stayed behind the 15s waiting for an ear flick or a head turn instead of wasting time attaching the doubler. BUT, there have been a couple of time where taking out the doubler has resulted in a quick "Nope. That's a stump." an I've found it helpful. I've not had the heart to sell my doubler but I don't pack it anymore either. If you have old swaros and want to borrow it, PM me.

    Mountain lion or Bobcat??

    I actually think it's close. My first response was bobcat. Not to be too equivocal but I'll call bobcat with 65% certainty. Both bobcats and lions can have those white facial markings. Also, it seems improbable to get multiple pics of a lion with out its long tail in the frame. If we had a sense of how far away it was, that would help but it's hard to get perspective from a photo. Finally, I'd bet there are more bobcats in that area than lions but guessing bobcat based on that would just be playing the odds. Any tracks? Any more pictures? Thanks for the interesting post.

    Checking In

    Welcome! You'll learn a lot on here and a lot on your scouting trips. Good luck and let us know how the hunt goes!

    New setup for filming

    Here's the website for the company makes the "Bino Bandit" ocular bino shade: https://alpineproducts.com/product/bino-bandit-glare-blocker/ They're also available via Amazon. I like mine enough that I bought some for gifts. (Made in USA too!) These Bino Bandits shut out the light very well. I still use a shemagh when the sun is burning hot or if it's cold but I use that in addition to these Bino Bandits.

    Apply the tag

    Agreed. Like Vowell said, either are legal. But, to me, attaching to the antlers is more convenient and cleaner. And it keeps your proof that it was an "antlered deer" with all your tag info for easy inspection if a G&F Wildlife Manager wants to take a look-see. (Plus, if you bone out your deer on the mountain, you won't be packing out the gambrels, much less transporting them home.)

    I hate thieves! Those are unique mounts. I hope you get your property back and find the perpetrators.

    Leftover Shrinkage

    My prediction is that the average # of BPs required to draw the more desired rifle tags will go down because knowing that left-over tags are (or very soon will be) a thing of the past, many people will abandon the strategy of stockpiling BPs. The choice will no longer between the chance at a “premium” tag and an almost guaranteed leftover but, instead, a choice between the chance at a “premium” tag and not going rifle hunting at all. This may be truer for us older folks though. Now that I’m on the back nine of life, hunting now holds great allure. Waiting 8 years for a “trophy” hunt means I’m hunting with a body that’s 8 years older too. Mind you, I’m still in the fight and try to stay fit but, whether we realize it or not, we’re all fighting the indefensible assault of time. Carpe diem, and all that. Life's short. Hunt hard. Hunt now.

    Results are up.

    Did you put in for this hunt as one of your first 2 selections or the last 3?
