10 Bucks! Woohoo!!!
Hello all. I haven't been on TOF for some time, but thought I would post up and let you guys know I won the Cady Mountains fund raiser tag. I can't believe my luck! I didn't want to let anyone know until it was confirmed by F&W. My big goal for the year was to get an A31 buck with my longbow, but plans are now changed. I'm back to shooting my compound bow now.
It looks like I get to hunt Nov through Jan and the other 2 tag holders can only hunt Dec & Jan, so there won't be other hunter pressure during Nov. I talked with BSBOWHUNTER this morning and he suggested I talk to SDHNTR. I remember these guys both got desert bighorns a while back and SDHNTR hunted the Cady's the first year they offered tags.
I plan on doing a lot of on-the-ground scouting before season and finding where the water is. The Mohave river is probably where a lot of sheep water, but I know there are a couple guzzlers in the area. So far, I haven't been able to find the Big Gees guzzler through internet scouting, but I know I'll be very familiar with the unit before season opens.
This tag also gives me a good reason to get in better shape and loose weight - like maybe 30 pounds!
Anyway, I'll post up some pics of my scouting progress and let everyone share some of the experience.
It's been a great week! My oldest graduated from UCI yesterday, I won the hunting tag lottery, and today is Fathers Day!
Happy Father's Day to all!!
