Back from another 2 Province run just a couple of days ago. Hunting was difficult in Alberta, as there was no snow, the daytime temps ranged up to double digits, and the animals simply didn't need/want to move. Nonetheless, we did see lots of game, and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience, so much so we're already booked for next year!
So, back to the Rainy Rock
, and attempting to locate my last blacktail of the season. Seen a few over the past few days, but the Frantic Last Minute Hunters
are certainly out in Full Force! Yesterday saw but 2 does, and those were on the run. Also saw 9 quads, 3 extra loud dirt bikes, and even a golf cart out running the trails! No wonder the deer are so secretive just now!
Between pushing so damn hard for most of the season, and continuing to do so in the rain upon my return, I managed to pick up a Doozey of a cold. Literally flattened me! So, taking today off to try and recover somewhat, and of course to leave the bush to the last antics of the Weekend Warrior
crowd. Back at it anon...
Been a great season for our crew thus far, and am indeed hoping to cap it with a nice blacktail buck. Should that pursuit not come to fruition, guess I'll simply have to settle for this guy as my Season Capper
Good Luck to those still engaged in The Game
