The hunting has been slooooow, the guide is the only one who has seen a shooter, but the buck was not close enough to put a stalk on. Plus Flores and I could never find him in our binoculars. We have had some success with the camera though. On day one we filmed two young bucks sparing and later that night a coyote almost sat in our laps (video to come).

There’s snow foretasted for tomorrow night so hopefully the big bucks will get up and feed before the temp drops.

I have to say our guide seems to be able to spot deer us first timers would ever find out here, I’m glad I went with a outfitter!

I put in for a Colorado Eastern Plains deer tag this year, with zero expectations other than getting back a preference point. So, imagine my amazement when a tag came in the mail instead of a refund check. I had to hold the piece of blue laminated paper in my hand staring at it for a second expecting that I would find in small print that it was my imagination and not actually a tag. After reassuring myself that in fact it was real the next emotion was how I’m I going to swing this. I thought this might be my only opportunity to hunt big Colorado Mule Deer so I was going to take ever opportunity to make it a reality.

I’m currently looking at Outfitters to outfit this trip, as there is no public lands to speak of in the GMU I drew a tag in. Stay tuned for more developments on this story…. I would appreciate and pointers or feed back you guys may have! hunt date 10/22/2011
