when an average hunter gets a strip tag. In the field updates

Recommended Posts

 I am a pretty average hunter and a below average gear guy, I use 150 dollar binoculars that I bought ten years ago.  I usually use the two second rule in judging if its a shooter or not. Listening to Jay Scott Podcast, I hear him use the term 'cream' quite a bit.  If Jay is the cream, I am more like grounds.  To use a fishing analogy he would be in the private boat with a captains chair and my preference would be swigging coors lights on a party boat learning from other guys swigging coors lights. For the most part I do not like waiting for tags with this exception, I wanted to hunt the AZ strip once in my life.  I will post daily as cell service allows my views and pics from 13b. People keep telling me I need to get a guide or buy a scouting package. Although I am sure it would help with my success, I consider hunting to be a test of what I know and what my intended quarry knows, (that and two daughters college tuition payments pretty much rules out buying anything)   Here are some pics from my scouting.  Big shout out to shane koury for helping me decide what a shooter is this year and pointing me in the right direction to check.

MY bison hunt sucked the majority of my vacation so my intention is to hunt the first few days then ten days starting just before labor day weekend. either my failure or success will be epic.

On the edge of my seat buddy! I have a feeling you will show is it doesn’t take remarkable amounts of money to have a remarkable hunt.

Mendoza actually hit .215-he's a shooter.  my eyes popped over the xtra tall buck in the 'first real bucks' pics.  but score was never all that with me.

This buck has alot of bumps, but he just doesn't didn't give me that first impression, I will look for him again to confirm.

It's not really score that's driving me. I'm sort of using the supreme courts definition of porn. I know it when I see it.

Good luck. I have a itchy trigger finger no matter what I am shooting there are several bucks in your pictures that would have arrows on the way.
