Dan can't make it this year, hopefully next year. But I'll take an XL to start off my Hunting Beast Gear collection.

Dan, as long as I can hitch a ride, I am in!!! Dan, where do I mail the deposit check?? And I am in for 1 t-shirt, size large. I am not sure on food item yet, I am hoping for walleye/sauger fillets, but that will depend on the river bite this week. I will bring that and the fixins' for a morning fish fry. If that fails, I will bring up the stuff to make my "cowboy grub" skillet breakfast.

You can wait and ambush, or spot and stalk... I would strongly urge you to wander around a little before shooting one and see whats out there. Not much challenge shooting a small one. But once they start to get older they start to get smart.
The smaller area is pretty rugged. A little swampy, lots of timber debris and lots of cover to hide them..
The larger area is huge and requires lots of walking it adds the challenge of not getting killed by stampeding buffalo. Jalen the guide almost got tagged last year.
I will try and dig up some pic's from the last couple years and post them in a different thread and you will kind of see the terrain in the background...
