Yes good thoughts. I am just looking for a fun time chasing goats or bucks for a couple of days and hopefully shooting a nice representative animal. Back home for whitetails my goal is a pope young minimum score buck every year with any weapon. I know p & y is just archery but that is my baseline. Many years I don't harvest a buck and it isn't a big deal. Some times I get lucky and get one. Some years I pass on nice deer that would make it knowing there are bigger ones around. I am just looking for a nice animal and having a good time, not just driving around and shooting one and being done. As far as time off I can get about any date for a week. I will have to look at gps and get the chip. That sounds like the ticket. Thanks for all the info.
