    Nice! I'm hitching a ride to North Dakota at the end of the month for what my buddies assure me will be my first real pheasant hunt. I feel all fancy traveling, but really I'm hitching a ride in an open seat and couch-surfing. Can't wait for some good feathers for this winters nymphs!

    After hunting a few years with a recurve i concluded, there were probably not many fat Indians back in the old days.

    I only hunt with a camera(got nothing against hunting though)...haven't seen any of these in the thread...most people around here consider them better meat than deer.

    Hunted our asses off this weekend, Ajay ends up knocking this muley down this morning. Damn thing was miles from the truck, took us just under 3 hours to pack him out in pieces. Great time though, and hella good exercise, bet I walked over 20 miles in 2 days.

    Yes I love it out there. He shot from the hill that's right behind his rifle barrel, it was not long maybe 200 yards, planted it right there with his .260.

    See that hill way back behind him? The truck is 2 miles past that :lol3.

    Looks like a truck with a small lift and some 35's or so could drive through there. I know I would of at least tried! :D

    Would be much easier, I could work my little XT225 out through there. Alas, no motorized vehicles allowed. The truck wouldn't get there though, lots of steep hills and bottoms to get through. We packed across most of what you see here.

    This is in response to a few questions how Daughter Snow faired this year. Stumbled on this thread and figured it was the appropriate place to post.


    We headed 2 hours north opening day, Oct 10 to a friends ranch outside of Cambridge ID. I exchange hunting rights for springtime fencing - each think we get the better deal.


    Worked until 3:30am the day before to make the trip and after the 150 mile drive picking up Lucy (Scooter) Tu eve wasn't going to hit first light.


    Opening day was hot - about 80 degrees plus - a bit warm for Idaho deer & hunters. We arrived, set up the pu camper, snacked then hiked, glassed and checked out the lay of the land until about 2:30pm. Beat brush, sweated and jumped a bedded doe. We were excited - it was pretty surreal to be walking the hills together. I was very happy to be there.

    Lucy had been traveling the prior weekend and was ready to just hang out so I left her that eve at 5:30 doing homework to glass a meadow 1/3 mile south. Planned to get on it hard the next day but suggested she check outside and look around a bit.

    Well.........just after sunset, about 7pm I heard a shot. Interesting. Nobody else was on the 580ac spread or the adjacent BLM allotment.


    Strolled up the meadow and there was Daughter Snow, super excited, bouncing and buzzing, standing over her first mule deer. Lucy had ambled out of the camper in bare feet, shorts, a tee shirt and saw three doe. She took pictures, loaded her .243, rested off the roll a table and had some significant thoughts: all sans Dad. The 80 yard shot was right behind the shoulder and the doe dropped in her tracks.

    Perfect. A great life experience for my 12 year old daughter. Even better on her own terms - we had sighted in and talked of breathing, site picture, squeezing, backstops and then she then did it all solo. Awesome.


    Some quality days together - the doe was a small part of the pie.


    Pics give a good idea of the terrain - we also played with the telescope - good stars up there.

    I should have gotten a photo in bare feet but we had work to do. The scooter learned a bit about dressing, quartering;

    and butchering;

    but more about herself on opening day. Got a hunting story to tell too.


    Many thanks to jtwind and crossfire 3006 for setting up Daughter Snow with a fanny pack and knife. The donations were awesome and well used. Appreciate paying it forward guys - I'm a proud Pop.

    It's the way it should be.

    I took a small buck the next eve. Overall a very easy but a very memorable hunt.

    +1 Great job Ms. Snow and Dad for taking her. The .243 is one of my favorite rounds for flat shooting like that.

    Dammit James! You didn't tell me Lucy got a deer. Good on her! That is a great story.

    I was trolling shiny things looking at bicycles and decided to look at this thread. I was scrolling through and thought- WTF I know that ranch yard, the garage looks familiar, hell... I know that girl. Good surprise. :clap:clap

    I shot a nice buck that same day over in 43. I can't post on here but will email you the pic presently.
