Opening weekend Nebraska Pheasant Season

Libby and I left Friday and traveled to Waunetta and attended the "smoker" and Saturday began hunting pheasants.

This area has had about 7 inches of rain in the last few days, we found the roads very muddy and virtually no corn harvested, We hunted all day with only one bird harvested,

Sunday, we had better luck finding birds, but it is sooo windy ( about 30 -40 mph) it was very hard to catch up to with them, I did manage to harvest one bird with the help of Libby.

Tomorrow, Monday we are planning to try our luck at wild turkeys again..

Sorry, no pictures slow internet...

Hunting for the last 2 weeks

Took a trip to Nebraska for a little fall Wild Turkey hunting

Scouted for 2 days and on the third day of hunting, ended up with 2 tom turkeys with one shot

Left Brighton Co for Fairplay Co for annual elk hunting last weekend thru Tuesday, No luck on getting elk But, enjoyed the trip anyway, Camped on forest service land for 5 days, using solar and wind power to run the camper.

Traveling to Nebraska on Friday for opening day (in Imperial Ne ) for pheasants, Libby can't wait. Will post more on this trip, we will have internet service there.

Pearl Lake Co

After staying overnight at Hot Sulpher Springs, I went to the range and checked the scope sighting of the hunting rifle.. Good thing I made the trip to check it. The scope was way high and to the right.
Shot about a half box of shells and got it zero'ed in.

I headed for Stagecoach reservoir to meet Rusty for some fishing, he ended up being a no show,

I continued north of Seamboat Springs to Pearl Lake, I have never been here before and wanted to check it out.

Pearl Lake is a Colorado State park.. It is beautiful...

I grabbed my fishing pole to try my luck, this mallard duck is really tame, did'nt mind that I was fishing.

Tomorrow traveling back home, weather is coming in from the west, possible winter weather Saturday night.

Next week Gary & I will try and bag a couple of wild turkeys ... back to Nebraska

I have traveled to Hot Sulphur Springs Colorado, to sight in the 30 cal short win mag for elk hunting this month near Fairplay Co.

near here is a state owned rifle range for sighting in, great excuse for leaving town and going to the mountains in October.

I am in a forest service camp (free) to stay overnight and shoot tomorrow.

Also we may be fishing at stagecoach res. tomorrow with Rusty
