2019 Plans

Been pretty quite in here. What’s everyone’s plans for this season?
Debating if I’m going to put in for FHL elk this year or not. Pretty sure my work schedule is going to conflict again this year. This should be the last time for that though, shore duty from 2020-2023 then retirement...let the hunting begin.

My plans are to spend a few hundred dollars fund raisers and chances for once in a life time tags. Realistically, I'll probably end up with D13, A31 or A32 tags

Yea elk draw chances suck. Good luck on the deer hunts. I’ll get a D16 and hopefully get a few days to be able to hunt.

Sounds like fun, good luck out there. One of these days I’ll get out of state.

I've been talking about the 2019 season for a couple weeks now with family and friends. There isn't any big plans so far amongst the lot of us for California this year. I am setting on max points for elk, and I'm thinking about turning my points in on a Marble Mtn bull but I had to take a new job at the beginning of the year and I lost my vacation time, so it may be another points only year. Back to zero points for deer so B zones for deer this year. Sheep and antelope are next to zero chance of drawing with my luck, but we put in anyway. We aren't doing anything out of State this year. But I've been internet scouting the heck out of the Frank Church Wilderness River of No Return. That may be the location of the 2020 out of state hunt.

Max points, that’s nice to have in your back pocket!

Never hunted D16. Was stationed in that general area for a while. Good luck down that way!

I put in for most western state elk hunts. Usually hunt colo every year but actually drew a Unit 10 AZ bull tag this year.
 
Point only deer and hunting the mid Sierra D's for me. Will be able to enjoy a few trips up there to scout and fish before the season starts.

Congratulations. I see from your previous posts that you apply in several States. Do you have any opinion on which States have better chances to draw a tag? I've put in for Elk in WY past two years with no luck. I've only been applying there because a friend of mine had success there back in late 80's early 90's. Might not be so good anymore?

If you archery hunt Idaho has some good opportunities we have gone there for the last four years also Colorado over the counter tags being so far its hard to know where to go

I applied for a Colorado muzzleloader hunt. I should know by June 1st or so if I need more quality time with my .54 flintlock.

Good luck. Never used a flintlock, just modern ML’s, that’s got to be interesting.

DAQ80, I shoot a lot of cartridge guns as well, but a flintlock is my weapon of choice. I've never drug a heavy barreled rifle in the mountains before, though so this will be a challenge. I can fit it with a sling, but age and Sir Isaac Newton are conspiring against me.

Well I drew my Colorado muzzle loader tag! My deposit with a guide has been sent. Now the work starts. I already HATE my bicycle. I'll off set it by shooting the flinter more. Working on group therapy the black powder way. Maybe I can schedule in a few workouts on my KTM to help get the body ready.​I might as well do something I enjoy for my workout.

I just had my first KTM workout this weekend in preparation for my upcoming hunt. I rode a Dual Sport ride in Eastern Ohio. The first trail section was tight woods for 10 miles with no break. The noise I heard in my front wheel turned out to be my tongue slapping in the spokes. I rode as far as I dared and made it through the first half of the run, but I'm so sore even my hair hurts. Maybe a few more and I can help out my exercise program, if I don't wear myself out too bad. Then again maybe I should just stick to my bicycle and barbells.
