    The 8 will be a decision looking thru the crossbow scope if he still visits after the 19th.
    I haven't set any cameras up at the property I hunted last year. But if any of the bucks that were around last year are still around this year, there will be some monsters. Getting excited, especially with the Temps dropping off nicely at night.

    I think I'm going to change my plan to fill my freezer.
    I have few legal buck 75 feet from my garage door but this upcoming cow elk hunt has taken a bit of a priority.

    I walked 9.75 miles today with 35 pounds of crap on me with a brand new pair of Kennetrek boots.
    The feet did just fine but the walking trail is about flat and mostly paved.
    I'm going to archery hunt about 20 miles away and carry my Loggy Bayou tree climber and Ten Point FX4 crossbow through woods to archery hunt in 2A.

    Both knees are bone on bone and close to needing a refurb but not exceptionally painful.

    So, I'm going to take a couple cameras to the location I hunt for old mans rifle doe season and load up the backpack with 50 pounds of stuff, see whats available in freezer candidates there.

    Not sure how far ill be walking in Wyoming but need to be ready.
    ( damn those boy scouts for making me think i need to be prepared)

    27hand, what part of Wyoming are you heading to? I*ve got a bull elk hunt planned for 2021 up near Wheatland. Terrain up that way is not to steep and walking isn*t to bad. Altitude is the killer, you*ll huff and puff like a freight train.

    I'll be staying in Wheatland.
    I think my tag is for area 7 and the hunt is scheduled for the second week of Dec.

    Guide said the area won't be too difficult as far as terrain but I plan to pack heavier and walk further over the next couple months. Its nice that the temp is starting to drop.
    I didn't think about the elevation difference aside from having the scope dial made for that area.

    Yo if you finish up early, head out southwest from Wheatland on Wy 34. Go about 25 miles out and you*ll find the Shamrock Saloon, great little bar and Laura the owner is a piss. When I*m out there in 2021 we plan on making a return visit. The ranch we hunted mulies on was just up the road from the saloon. Good luck on you hunt and kill sumtin.
