    And Jerry, I do have to apologize to you. I was more than prepared to trade you a hard-frozen organic (unskinned) squirrel for the venison. But I was in a hurry to get back to work, and it slipped my mind. I can mail it if you'd like.

    I do appreciate the offer, but I think I'll pass.  B)
    You might reconsider. This squirrel is large. Non-GMO, no growth hormones, gluten-free, and free range. It's never seen a leaf of kale.....plums, cherries, peaches, and deck furniture were its preferred diet. And it was  a very smart squirrel. A very smart squirrel. It took me a while to get smarter.

    If you still don't desire this USDA Choice specimen, with your blessing, I'll sell it on Ebay. Some liberal in Georgia will make it worth our while.

    I have a couple of additional comments regarding this hunt.

    First, if you hunt with Six-Gun, bring your A game.  The man's motor doesn't stop.  He truly loves to hunt.  Or maybe he lives to hunt.  Either way, I couldn't stay up.  Hunting with two guys 25-30 years my junior was a humbling experience.

    Second, on our way up, we drove through the extreme northeast corner of Wyoming.  The route took us by Devil's Tower (think "Close Encounters of the Third KInd").  That by itself was awesome.   While we didn't see any UFOs or aliens, we did see tons of deer (mulies and whitetail) and antelope.  I don't know if there's much public land there, or the regulations, but it's worth checking out.
    Yes. I waaaaaaayyyyyy to lazy to hunt with Six.  :-)
    C’mon - I’ll just strap you to a pack frame and carry you around like an Eskimo infant until it’s time to shoot. 
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Sounds like quite the adventure. I wouldn't mind tagging along if you do this again next year.
    That way Jerry will have someone else old and slow to keep him company :D

    I'll reinforce the above sentiments. If you're gonna hunt with SixGun....bring your A-game. Keeping up is tough on old men. I prefer to close the distance with a scope adjustment. He prefers to close the distance on foot.  LOL.

    Well...I can't deny that last part.  I might be a little bit nuts in that when big game hunting (and waterfowl hunting, for that matter), I view the rounds in my weapon as "Plan B" in the event that I can't get within bayonet range.

    Dude. Absolutely! I’ll be real
    quiet. You can have me facing the rear to make
    sure no bears  sneak up behind us. 

    That'll work.  Just be sure to shriek like a girl and fire wildly if said bear starts charging, and we'll be all good.

    Yep, you have to be in shape to keep up with MHS, even if he is walking slow

    Ha! Well if it makes you feel better i had to stop for a couple breaks when packing out a rear quarter,  head,  pack, pack frame and rifle.

    It ain't fun if you ain't crawlin in the dirt at least a little

    Amen to that!  As you know, much like Colorado, the biggest challenge out there is the cactus labyrinth that never fails to be right where you need to crawl.  You're forced to either move out from around cover to avoid it, or elevate higher than ideal to try and go over it.  Of course, you still end up with spines in your hands/body no matter how hard you try...

    I still have a few cactus holes healing in my fingers,  elbow, knee and thigh lol.
