My wife and I spent a week hiking and camping in the Black Hills NF of South Dakota the first of May, I was even able to sneak in a hunt too. My original hunting plans were canceled due to the massive snow storm they got in mid April.

I wrote a blog about the trip here Fire on the Mountain , this is more an informative blog about the overall trip but I thought I would share it here and hopefully help a few hunters out that might want to try a public land DIY Merriams hunt.

I would like to plan another trip for next Spring, if anyone is interested maybe we can work something out. Right now I have two people interested but not committed.
