Might as well start it now, I should have good reception at the waterhole. Headed up today to prep the blind spot, gotta little work to do to accommodate the blind. Gonna look for a back up spot if needed. Checked the forecast for opening day, it'll be pushing 100°, should make them goats awful thirsty :)

Live blogging is the best!

Did you end up with the Rhino blind?

Looks like the water hole is in the road! I would have just used the vehicle as the blind. Keep the AC on

That looks like you took a pic of where you peed!

I guess they are called sage maggots for a reason.

Its actually part of an old road, rough as hell now, I won't take my truck up it. I'm banking in the goat running downhill.

Saw 4 bucks on the drive in, took a little break from leveling my blind spot and these two little guys came by looking for a drink.

After going beastmode for 125 yards UPHILL from the truck, I some how summoned the energy to level a spot for my blind. In the shade of a juniper of course. A few snips of some branches when I set up the blind next week and its done. I'm pretty sure there's better places that are flatter and closer to the truck, but I have a little history with this place and a some unfinished business. 7 days and counting for the opener.

Shooting downhill? Check arrow clearance from bottom of window after blind set up. No shooting a hole in your brand new blind.
