Where are YOU hunting this year? (Plus new pics)

They've updated the satellite pics of where I hunt, showing the fields I had last season.

I'll be putting them in the same areas again this year (# 1 & 2), plus a new, shorter range, field for handgun and bow hunting (#3)

I've also included a zoomed out view so you can see the 3 in perspective
The "Swag"

The "hay barn"

The new field location (line shows where I'll be planting)

Overview with corresponding numbers

So now you know where I'll be hunting, how about you?

    Here around the house early. Later on we like to camp and hunt the Nat'l Forrest. But there are a lot of things up in the air this year so we'll see how things go. Main thing is to get my wife her first deer. After that it's all about filling the freezer. Anything else will be gravy.

    TBD.

    As a side note, Paul's stomping grounds are VERY nice.

    I have a few deer stands on the back of my property and can decoy out my field for geese. It is nice having a 5min hike to my stand. My son got his first deer on youth huntv day 15min after we left the house. I blew the doe bleat and he came trotting right to us.

    TY :beer: and SS3, Orchidman and Eli can all attest to the big field not being ANYWHERE near as flat as that satellite pics makes it look. Full of rolling hills and terraces.

    Fremont, Pueblo and Custer counties in Colorado for cow elk. Fremont county (I hope) for whitetail deer.

    I also plan on a tag along for antelope with Linefinder and Mosseybuck (maybe) in Kiowa county (I think that's the right county).

    Damn it is nice not having to travel to shoot or hunt isn't it.

    Yep, though killing the ones in the back yard lose some appeal eventually.

    Especially the ones literally shot while the wife or I are standing in the back doorway.
    We normally only kill one a year here at the house (This is my year IIRC), and where I posted above is only a 30 mile drive from here on her family's land. So at least I hunt from home, even when I'm "going" to hunt

    50-something forum members who have attended the Southeast shoot over the past several years can tell you just how nice it is! It would be hard to push three generations of us out of here with a D-9 dozer!

    I really wish I was staying long enough to make hunting season here in CO.

    I have invited Wounded Warriors to use my back deck a few times. They seem a little firearms touchy lately though.

    Yep, Kiowa county. I'm getting itchy to chase antegoats. Maybe the rains this summer have helped out the area. Two seasons ago, they'd all migrated north due to the drought.

    BTW.....let me know if there are (or will be) any OTC cow tags where you're going to be.

    Mike, I don't think there are any otc cow tags, but it's GMUs 69/86 second rifle season. It's the season that runs from Oct. 18-26. I just now checked, and learned that leftover tag availability will be posted on July 29. I don't know if I'll be where I have online access at that time.

    Most definitely Wounded Warriors has been infiltrated by some Bunny Huggers in the last year or so. They have a big fishing tournament for them down here at Port O'Connor and you can tell the difference in the management. It's not the warriors themselves. Most are hunters and shooters. I was helping them fish with my wife on the bank of a big marina and the warriors were talking about all the deer and hogs they had seen around the place. They were biting at the bit to be able to hunt.

    I'm not disclosing where. Only one Forum member knows where I hunt and I swore him to secrecy. But I will say it's somewhere within the boundaries of Jackson County Texas.

    I put a knoxx stock on a Mossberg Roadblocker. The brake really calms the recoil of slugs for those in wheelchairs. My testimony on the ADA benefits of modern firearm features is the reason the only copycat features in MD are flash hiders, grenade launchers and folding stocks. Threaded barrels with brakes, vertical and modular grip systems and adjustable stocks are all completely legit. Too bad nobody in NY,NJ, Conn, Cal,I'll thought of it. After the one shot those helping him they are really touchy. I am hoping we can figure out how to get a few down this year.

    I've got an antelope hunt to attend to in Nevada this time next month. Then, it's off to Montana to fill a mule deer tag and fly fish some mountain streams. Other than that, I'll be archery hunting on base for deer and goose hunting the fields there for geese and pheasant.

    I really got lucky with the state of Florida's wildlife management area quota hunts...during the 4+ months of hunting seasons, archery, muzzleloader and modern gun I got three whole days in a very marginal management area!.whoohoo !Sorry just had to get it off my chest. Last spring when I got a survey call from our FWC about hunting they got an earful about how bad the current system is.
    I was always taught to respect my elders, but its getting harder to find one ...

    Ouch. That's a pretty tough setup and I would definitely not be pleased with the layout. I'd almost rather them limit the number of hunters further and extend the number of hunting days rather than giving out such a such a short hunt window. Don't get me worng. Plenty of us have gotten lucky and tagged out on day 1, but on public land, that's hardly a sure thing.
