Had my spouse drop me about 5 miles across the ridges and I was to hikle/hunt to camp. About half way saw a doe so decided to check chamber ... nothing in chamber, nothing in pocket!
Enjoyed the hike on a sunny day with an inch of snow on the pine needles.
Won my club's prize (twice) for the guy who 'went the fartherest, spent the most and shot the least!' Yukon and upper BC.
All great trips. Yep the hunting/outdoors is it. As an old (older than me!) friends sez, 'that's why they call it hunting and not killing'.
Enjoy all you can while you can!!!!!!
