Guiding with the ole’ man comes to an end for this year 🦌🦅
Here are some pictures from my very first deer rifle season. I saw a few does and found six sheds which was awesome! The thing that I try to take away is to enjoy each moment and understand that these adventures could be gone tomorrow so enjoy God's country today while we can ;) Hunting season 2018 in CO is a wrap! What a year! So many firsts.. 27 sheds=record year (16 mule deer and 11 elk). 2 muley match sets and 2 brown elk sheds. For those of you that aren't familiar with "brown" like I was that simply means fresh sheds from that year. One of the elk shed being a "unicorn" aka a spike bull elk and finding 3 sheds just across the border in UT.
Connecting on two Merriam turkeys was priceless and thrilling as well!
FINALLY... putting down a bull elk takes the cake!! Such a thrill and sooo many memories made from that experience alone.
A special thanks to @madisonbuch
for allowing me to venture off to unexpected places and taking care of our two amazing dogs. Couldn't have done any of this without you and on to OUR upcoming getaways ;) #huntingseason #thatsawrap #rifle #muledeer #elksheds #muledeersheds #colorado
Now we wait for days like this, passing the time shooting fawn killers and watching critters winter. Rough life we live 🙏🏼

Pre scouting marking area with bulls and later shed bulls then the gridding starts I will sometimes hit a area 3 times like this area #onxmaps

Hoss, Fins sad, showed him how shed hunting is done this weekend! Both pups did awesome! @dorber43
I’m a huge fan of finding sheds which have been laying in the wide open for over 6 months. The only problem is, they bleach out a little quicker that way. Can’t always get what you want I guess! #elk #wapatiwednesday #tinesup #elksheds #wideopen
