| | went for my 9 day CO hunt
so Sept 10th - 18th was Colorado's muzzle loader season. To make things short we saw 4 elk " bull on the first day!" and 4 deer total including one buck " i had a buck tag"
By the time we figured out the buck was there he took off and didnt give me a shot due to the thick timber.
Its a good thing we had small game tags because Dusky grouse were all over the place for the first 4 or 5 days and then cold rainy weather moved in and even killed the grouse hunting!
My brother and my dog Rocky.
Home sweet home for 9 days. Pretty big though! 19'L x 12'W Plenty of room but darn cold at night with no heater.
So my hunt ended without ever firing a Thor at a buck. Now im re-packing and getting my other Optima "scoped" ready for Sept 24-30th New Mexico Muzzleloading season with 110gr Blackhorn209 and a 250gr Powerbelt Aerolite.
Hopefully i will have better luck on this hunt.
