Well as the countdown is set to expire the anticipation is increasing. Archery season starts this Saturday. Lots of real nice bucks spotted over the past few weeks. Hopefully the wind will stay steady and find a buck with ear plugs. Good luck to all of you who suffer from my same addiction of chasing these ghoasts in the desert.

Beautiful country in D12, takes a hearty soul to succeed there, with stick and string, darn near a miracle is needed. Good luck!!

Bow hunting the desert is definitely not for the faint of heart or anyone who requires a lot of action to stay engaged.However, the deer haven't been chased all over and heard all of the off roaders run all over hell leaving a trail of beer cans. (Most call it quail hunting, some even call it scouting) So with a hell of a lot of hard work and miles walked and DAYS of glassing you stand a good solid 1% chance of having an opportunity. So when the alarm goes off at 3:00 and you know you have that long walk in the dark up that mountain for about a good 45 minutes of glassing with the scope before the deserts mirage is so bad you couldn't see a train at a half mile, just stay after it.Today could be your day. P.S... Please leave the quail alone. Almost zero hatch this year over most of the desert, for the 2nd year. We need some good winter rains to help those little yummy guys get their numbers back up.

I live here in the beautiful Imperial Valley. Sorry for the delayed response. I am very new to the forums. That little button that says page 2 was pretty well camoflauged
