    Who gives Deer their calenders?

    1st August, out on my permission for 5am, with hopes for staggies.

    Been watching several youngsters on the ground recently and have a plan of what to take out.

    Spent 4 hrs in various locations with no sign of any male of the species.......


    How the heck do they know

    They get on line to see when the season starts, then just resign to watching Gran Prix racing on television that day.

    Seriously though, I have wondered at that myself. Two years back I drew an antelope tag for the farm country around where I live so I watched the antelope every day for two months. I took photos of them within 100 yards of me right up to a couple of days before the season started. Opening morning? Gone. It later ocurred to me that every day these antelope wander across the "section roads" that separate different cultivated fields, on their way to the high sage flats were I see them. There is usually very little traffic on these roads but I'm wagering that on opening day of antelope season there were hunters driving about on their way to their hunting spots. The added traffic probably threw the beasts off of their schedule and caused them to just lay low instead of coming to visit my 308.~Muir

    Well, it just does to show how quickly things change.

    Arrived at my spot this morning stalked into a spot where the cull staggies were being seen prior to the 1st August.

    3 shots later, three staggies grassed.
