    Palo duro canyon aoudad

    I grew up 25 miles south of there. The canyon is rough country. Aoudad like the roughest and steepest areas best. But they also like to hit a wheat field on top. If you can pick a pasture to hunt that is adjacent to a neighboring wheat field, that could be a good spot. They'll be in areas...

    Laying tile is a beating. I hope you had knee pads. We did a MtnTough Minimum Gear Daily workout today.

    I've taken the last couple days off after getting home from our elk hunt last week. I'll say that we were not limited at all in what we could do on our hunt. Our preparation and conditioning all summer was spot on. We covered 4-10 miles/day with 30# packs up and down hills with no problems at...

    Colorado Elk Hunt 2022

    Zach and I had a great hunt in southern Colorado last week. My main goal was to get him on his first bull elk. This was his 2nd time hunting elk. He had a cow tag in NM last year and filled it. This year he had a bull tag in CO, and he filled that one too. We hunted 1,800 acres of private...

    I don't usually plug stuff, but I'm gonna plug MtnTough+. These folks are putting out the best fitness stuff I've seen, and I've seen a lot. Their app subscription service is worth every last penny to me. They are lots of workout routines that you can choose from (adding more all the time)...

    Running makes my knees hurt too. I bought an Echo bike, and I stand up as I pedal on that. The arm action combined with standing pedaling is pretty similar to running without the impact. Doesn't hurt my knees at all.

    Parks and Wildlife Commission License Distribution Workshop

    I pay money to lease private land to hunt in my home state. It would be nice to have a chance to hunt for free - even once every two or three years. I know you guys that have grown accustomed to hunting for free every year are upset when those opportunities begin to get harder to come by. But...

    Decoys

    I will carry an elk butt decoy with me next month for an archery hunt. No way I'd carry one around during a general season though, no matter how good they work.

    It's a GREAT day in Texas!

    Liz isn't too popular in Texas either. Her expected loss was another reason it was a good day.

    It's a GREAT day in Texas!

    There's cooler (less hot) temps and almost daily rain chances in our extended forecast - two things we haven't seen in a long time. And the Texas Rangers fired Jon Daniels today. LOOOOOONG overdue firing. OK, carry on...... We're just happy around here. :D
