I'm hunting just outside of Alamosa. Some bugling in morning not as much at night. Only 1 cow seen in 2 days so that's likely part of it.

On private land so no pressure. Depends a lot on location and elevation. I may be around 7000 ft + 15 for my stand.

Good luck.

Rut seems a little late here. Talked to co and he agreed. Couple of bulls bugling but the bull above was silent. Had another small one with 50 yards and he hung around my stand for 30 mins.

Saw lone cow. Damn....bugling now..bye

Let this guy walk. Why when i have a rifle they come within 25 yards and 200 with a bow in hand! Mornings are below freezing but warm during the day.

That's Mom's - they just filled it up with rich mix and bring in a load of 'refresher' every couple of years.  If they get weeds, now there's a neighbor who have 2 boys looking to make extra money so they pull weeds and mow the yard! 

Plan is to go rob some of her spinach, lettuce and kale for a few salads this week!  Add a side of elk steaks and good to go.  :)

Got my tomatoes and peppers all planted so everything's in that's going in this year.  Need to stake up the tomatillo plants as they tend to be a little frail until better established.

Wapiti River Outdoors - Black Widow(I think that's the one).  Backup is a Primos single reed sonic dome.

Another vote for Davis tents Dan!  Had a 10x12 and was fine for 2 people, gear and a stove.  Big enough for an oversize cot on one side, folding table at the end then stove in opposite corner.

Like Brad's, I had mine customized with zippered doors on both ends but no windows.  Stove jack is already there.  I bought one of their sponsor wood stoves with attached water reservoir and it was handy.  Would heat up water to boiling then had a side spigot.

Guess you found somewhere to hunt that you can't take the camper for the luxury base camp you're accustomed to?

Got problem fixed with sending pics from my phone.  Like I mentioned, here's my Mom's lettuce, spinach and onions.  Then my potatoes are going strong.  Will get tomatoes and peppers planted this week.

Check out and click on Features at the top.  Pat did a great review on one of the QuietKat models and he's pretty good about getting back to you if have questions.

Looking good Okieelk!  I bought tomatoes and peppers this weekend and will put in the ground this week sometime.  Mixed up some bone meal, blood meal, epsom salt and calcium nitrate to put in each tomato hole to boost and help with blossom rot.  Last year most of my tomatoes had blossom rot on the bottom so trying to prevent it this year.

Having issues sharing files from my phone but will update some pics later this week.  Potatoes are coming up really good as are the beets.  Spinach and lettuce is almost ready to start picking - Mom's garden always beats out the rest of us so hers is ready to start picking!

When looking for trail cameras, I've found very good deals on eBay.  Be sure and read up as there are different features you may or may not want to pay for.

Yep!  Just needed a little sun and here come the asparagus!

Careful putting out dates Brad - you'll get hail June 30th if putting up in July!  At least that's my luck.

Okieelk, yeah, I'm a little SW of OKC.  Agree on the next crops - have green beans, okra, cucumbers up then tomatoes and peppers to finish out the garden.  Will put some garlic, horseradish and shallots in pots late fall then harvest around June next year.  Be sure to add some pics when you get yours going.  Love to hear/see what others are doing.

Should be getting a few asparagus shoots every day when the weather warms up.

Looks good Brad!  I never was quite sure how to build a hail net but still let enough sun shine through.  Anxious to see what you come up with - figure it will be from something a neighbor left on the side of the road like your smoker box from a grill.  Brilliant!

Actually got down below freezing here this weekend too.  May set stuff back a little but sunshine and 70s rest of the week.  Hope my peach tree didn't get too cold.
