When I used the phase "half drunk", you knew exactly what I was referring to.Buzzard Breath uses those at work. He puts his bourbon in it, sips it throughout the day, rolls it up and stashes it away so the boss lady doesn’t know any difference.
He is basically a genius.
then your good haha They got to everything we shot that week with atv and hauled it all out except one. that one they had to use frame packs on, that they had in camp.Man the place is beautiful. I have the good fortune that one of my buddies going used to be a guide there. He actually grew up with the kid who’s family now owns the ranch and his brother bud now head guide! So I’m really hoping we get the red carpet rolled out for the premium spots! If
You or your buddies are going next year for early archery disregard that last sentence lol… what can I expect after a kill as far as packing out goes? I have an X2 pack that I plan on taking but if I need to upgrade due to a major haul out situation then I have no problem doing it.
Don’t waste your money on spotting scope. Spend it on your binoculars. It’s a guided hunt they may use a spotting scope but probably not. 10x42 Leica, Zeus, Sworavski is where I would spend the money. Bought a pair in 2000 (Leica)and still using them.Really getting excited about this thing. I’m going to improve on my optics. I have 8x40 optilogic binos now which I love. They could use some factory reconditioning but I have entertained the idea of a spotting scope. It wouldn’t be used a ton, aside from this hunt or others I take like it in the future, except for scouting bean fields in the summer here at home. I’m planning to follow the other thread closely to see what everyone is recommending. For guys who have done this before do you recommend a hydration bladder in my pack (eberlestock x2) or a canteen?
Well grab that pack and put 70lbs in it and head on up here to work. I’ve got the perfect “stairclimber” that’s a mile long. Starts off a little easy and becomes a killer at the top lol.Began my training regimen today. I have about 1 year before we leave. Really working on improving my cardio and endurance in this time frame. I did 30 minutes of interval treadmill work. 2 minutes @ 4mph and 2 minutes @ 7mph. Went from there to the rowboat machine. Did 10 minutes as hard as I could and went about 2000 meters. Finished off with the stair climber. Did preselected interval workout for 10 minutes. Worked up a great sweat.
If I went to walking up then tracks you’d have to put a catch net at the bottom! It’s a LONG roll down….Well grab that pack and put 70lbs in it and head on up here to work. I’ve got the perfect “stairclimber” that’s a mile long. Starts off a little easy and becomes a killer at the top lol.
Hey that’sa great idea! I’m only about 7 minutes from there. Thanks for the input man! You ever want to get together and talk hunting let me know!tree_ghost im in the boro as well and barfield park is one of the few places around with both technical terrain (lots of tricky rocks/roots) and hills. i used it to train for 2 trips in the last 5 years (Longs Peak and another 14er Mt. Bierdstat in CO). loading up a strong pack with 40lbs and hiking 5 miles a couple of times a week in addition to my typical workout routine paid dividends. invest time hiking with trekking poles. if you don't use poles regularly its easy to develop tendinitis in your elbows - not something you want to be faced with during the hunt of a lifetime.
I’m familiar with Cam…he’s on another talk forum regularly. Not my favorite guy in the world. I’ll have to check out David though can’t say I’ve heard of him yet. Thanks for the suggestion!If you want to see some decent elk bow kills follow Cameron Hanes on Instagram. In fact, if you hunt, or don't hunt, follow Cameron Hanes.
And David Goggins.
Got in a couple miles of running yesterday along with some body weight calisthenics. Worked up a good sweat. Today decided to just do dumbbell lifting in the garage for some strength train
hecks yeah! ill send a pm with my contact infoHey that’sa great idea! I’m only about 7 minutes from there. Thanks for the input man! You ever want to get together and talk hunting let me know!
