    I think our season starts around the 15 of oct give or take a day or two. My first archery season, so I'm not ready and wont feel ready till I'm up in my stand. Havent shot my broadheads with the new bow yet, need to pull out the camo. May pick up some sent control stuff and a call or two. I'm excited, but my biggest dilema is waterfowl starts around the same time. Ducks in the morning archery in the evening.

    Thanks Destroyer. I love this "Umbrella". It's trekking pole, Portable blind, Camera, rifle rest and if need be...a umbrella. The slip cover comes off. I have Elk, Sage, and turkey covers for it too. Plus it's light and not expensive. I've tried ground blinds and I can't sit still in them. Specially when it 90 plus degree's in it. it's called the Elk mountain Slip system.
    Two days and counting folks. Deer, Bear, Cougar and Elk Tag in hand.



    Here's a old video I made using it. Nothing fancy and no sound. I was using my Mini Action cam.

    I am even more excited today. I was showing my game cam pics to a guy I was working with and it turns out that I have an 8pt and a 6pt in my area. I thought they were the same deer but after looking at them side by side they are actually two different bucks. The 8 pt has tines coming straight up off the base and the 6pt doesn't but because of how the head was down I didn't really notice until today. I can't wait to get in a tree and see if I can bag one this year.

    I shouldn't call it an umbrella then. Very cool!

    Bow is well tuned, tight & ready.....broadheads sharp & flying true......gear is all ready......elk, deer, bear & "wolf" tags in my wallet.........and I'm bummed.
    Most of our archery seasons across the state opened yesterday (Aug 30), but recent high temps have been over 90 and worse, I'm stuck at work.

    With everything going on, I'll probably end up waiting until a November late season deer/elk combo hunt, then hopefully be able to get a few days off.



    Double S,
    I don't think I've ever seen a treking pole quite like that.
    I've cow called a bull elk in before that hung up just inside cover looking for an elk. One of the Montana Decoy cow elk would have brought him out the last few yards........kind of wondering if one of those Elk Mtn cow elk covers at the back of the pocket would do the same, then have the added benifit of walking stick and rifle shooting monopod.
