    Default Seasons here!

    Headed out at 6 in the morning. After a 7 mile hike to camp, hope to be glassing by mid afternoon.
    Good luck to all the muzzleloaders.

    Had to read your post a few times. I was wondering how you had cell service when you were seven miles in.

    I don't understand how you can pack all of your gear in that far, then also pack an animal back out.

    Speaking of packing out, what do you do with evidence of sex while packing out? You aren't able to carry everything at once, so is there a priority to how you handle evidence of sex? Do you pack that first, last, does it matter?

    There are 3 of us, and because of where we are, we aren't greedy. We take one cow and split it. One trip out with the meat and one back to get camp.

    Makes a lot more sense. Especially since you probably have good sized frame packs, and not the little 3-day pack I hunt out of.

    First day for me will be tomorrow AM after work. I've seen a herd hanging around the general area I'm going to for muzzleloader - saw 30 or so an hour ago. I'm heading into National Forest off of my buds property whose seen a bunch lately too. Hopefully they won't be 10 miles away tomorrow morning. LOL

    While scouting moose areas yesterday I talked with a number of archery and muzzleloader elk hunters. The archery hunters had gotten within 65 yards of elk but hadn't connected. There are a lot of camps set up in 20/29. I'm making contact with fellow hunters in hope of getting tips on bull moose. (Just call, text, PM or e-mail!) It worked for an old friend who took a big bull moose in area 29 last year.

    A friend told me he had a herd of 50 elk move through his property Sunday. On Monday, a bull elk was seen in my yard, which is rare. It's so warm it doesn't seem like elk season--but I hunt late October. But the weather is changing and elk are on the move. Good luck everyone!

    Any big game with bow and arrow is a fine accomplishment. Congratulations! Excellent steaks there!

    While scouting for moose today I met an archery hunter from Ned looking for a cow moose. His season started two days ago. He'd seen bulls but no cows. We met a Sheriff's officer who said he'd seen two cow moose off Magnolia, so the archer headed that direction. While exploring I came upon a cow moose at 60 yards and save the coordinates for the fellow hunter. A while ago I called him and he was already butchering his cow moose.

    I met a muzzleloader buck hunter from OK and pointed him to where I'd seen two nice bucks earlier. He'll probably go there in the morning. I didn't see a bull today but both he and the cow moose hunter showed me where they'd seen bull moose. I like meeting other hunters in the field and while there's an element of competition, particularly when you're hunting the same game, I figure we're all in this together.

    Yesterday, Mrs. Hummer and I scouted another mountain canyon and drove by a house. The resident had a big sign on their truck that said, "It's not food, it's violence". This is the mindset that should keep hunters (and shooters) working for one another.
    Be prepared....
