Fall seems to come quicker and quicker each year. I have been thinking about different hunting opportunities and scoping areas out since last fall, but the time flies by and there is only so much you can do on top of a busy life!
Hunting season for deer and elk with archery has approached in Montana (as of September 7th). Although I have gone through the proper training and certification for bow hunting in Montana, I think I am going to sit out this season and start prepping for the General Rifle season that is approaching in October. The rifle ranges are getting pretty busy around here and I need to finish zeroing in the Vortex to make sure a clean kill is had! The buzz on social media and different blogs that I regular is contagious and things are definitely getting fired up around the state. I have seen some photos of some amazing hunting experiences and I am excited to eventually share mine with you on here. I wish you all a good season and safety out in the woods.
I also plan to go out and purchase an Upland Bird license in the upcoming days as that season is well underway and birds are being put in freezers quickly. A little grouse hunting before work is always a good time and I am getting excited just thinking about getting out there on some more adventures. Instead of kicking myself in the ass for what in my mind feels like unpreparedness, I am going to do what I can with the time I know have. Make the best of this season!
Stay tuned for some updates and of course photos on this hunting season. I am really looking forward to being able to provide and bring some meat to our table here in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana. Venture on and good luck to all of you out in the backwoods searching for game.
