    I wouldn't use a tag service. Remember they deal with thousands of people, and to draw tags more frequently you want to look for niches people aren't flocking to.

    Just a thought, but does anyone have a concern what shooting your muzzleloader every evening does to the deer behavior on a backcountry hunt?

    Unless you are itching to hunt WY for deer more frequently, if I had max points I would sit on them and wait for the quality in some of the best units to turn around.

    One good thing about going with a Vortex model is their guarantee. That guarantee should keep your resale value up, so if and when you want to upgrade you can get more out of your old binos.

    Unless I am on a true mountain hunt, I normally just hunt in a mid height (over ankle) trail boot with a good sole. They are lightweight and comfortable. For me, Merrell boots are super comfortable.

    Ontario...do you ever fish Brownlee for catfish? I love doing that!

    You are a heck of a lot closer to Wyoming/Montana/Idaho/Colorado/Utah hunting than I am.
