Colten and I drew out for the Turkey hunt this year, Russ did not. Russ was our personal guide, but by the end I think he was a little sick of us beginners. I have never hiked so much in my life. It was really frustrating this trip when we hike all the way up the mountain and on our way down, we had two run in front of Colten and were gone so fast I missed them. We got in the truck and drove up the road and seen then crossing the road.
I realized quickly that hunting isn’t as east as it looks. Poor Russ, the opening morning he was up the mountain like a goat and me, well I was struggling. I was out of breath and coughing, I even had to stop to puke, good times! I made it up the mountain to sit for a total of 10 minutes before Russ said there were to many people and it was a waste of our time. I ended up falling and sliding most of the way down the mountain feel in a snow bank while jumping and the whole time I was laughing to myself. I really had no business being on that mountain like that.LOL
Colten was a good sport, we dragged him around a lot and his poor feet were frozen. he didn’t think much of waking up at 4:30 to get on the mountain by 5:30. He sure did have a blast once we stated seeing them. We were not successful but we had a blast doing this together.
The most amazing thing to me about the hunt was watching and listening to the moutain wake up in the morning. i never realized how many birds there really are in the woods. The owls would hoot and the deer wake up around you.
