Our hunt is in Feb. Z man will be the gun man. Got a cow elk hunt in Jan. Try to kill a yote or 2 before then. Archery rut deer season this weekend. Gonna go with a buddy and see if he can stick a buck.

Hatch, shoot a Nigali so I can see what it is.

I've seriously been looking into heading down there lately to kill a bunch of pigs. I've been finding tons of flight and room packages on priceline for around 400-500 for a week. How do you get all your meat back. Do you ship it Delta Dash?

and this is the traditional way to dress to decoy them in
