Re: That time of year again - Colorado hunt planning
Don't know why our deer appear smaller than your Wyoming deer, I've never hunted Wyoming deer before. Maybe it had something to do with our drought last year...maybe they're just smaller...maybe Wyomings like Texas and everything you guys have is bigger than what everybody else has got.

I didn't say he had six "world records" I said he had probably six bucks that would make B&C all time record book, theres a BIG difference. As to why he never had them scored and put in the books, I asked him that same question myself. "Too much hassle involved with having your name in the book" was his answer. He said he has enough people calling him trying to buy his racks just from word of mouth, much less if they were in the book. A recent example was Doyle Moss of Mossback Productions dropped by his place a couple of months ago to look at his bucks. This was when Doyle came down to film a pair of bucks that a friend of mine knew about. Doyle tried to buy three of his racks before he left - guess he must of thought they'd score really high in the book also. And yes, that 47" is outside spread, as if that makes a difference. Actually he's had 3 or 4 of them scored by official scorers just because they offered to do so knowing they were high book bucks. He told me what place they would of held in the books at that time, but he didn't want to put them in for the reason I already gave you. He's satisfied just knowing that HE got them and they're hanging on HIS wall - some people are just like that. Since you don't seem to believe much of what I say, feel free to give Doyle Moss a call and ask him about the bucks that Chuck Strauss has got in his shop and in his living room wall. That is if you believe that Doyle knows what a big buck looks like. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
I never said that "you guides just do it for the fame and its not all that hard..anyone can do it..if they had the time" - you said that not me.
"Next time you go deer hunting take along 2 guys who haven't done it before..make sure they stay in your pocket..and see how easy it is to get your shot off" - guess what big guy, I had 3 such guys standing beside me when I touched off that shot. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] And I would be happy to produce they're phone numbers so you can check it out. I'm not some internet bullshitter that doesn't know what he's doing or what he's talking about - I can backup everything I say and do.
"unless you've guided, tread lightly" -I never said that I don't guide. I just don't take MONEY for guiding cause its not how I make my living and I'm guiding friends, not paying customers. I'm usually out there from bow season to the last rifle season every year. I do it for the enjoyment and to give my mules something to do. So I know the game, been doing it for probably longer than you have.
Don't know when the rut hits in Wyoming but I would imagine its not much different than in Colorado, and in Colorado mid October is pre-rut. And if you don't believe that statement, well I can prove that one too! [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
"you fit the mold believe me" - I already told ya', when this child hit the ground God took one look at me and BROKE the mold! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
And last but not least, my favorite! "touchy..nice cover up on the anger though..no doubt if we were tippin back a few you'd have swung at me.." - LOL, no instead I'm ROFLMAO...hell, I wouldn't of wasted the energy pilgrim. Plus I wouldn't want to take a chance of damaging my drinkin' hand!! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] HAAAAAAAHAHAHHAHAHHAHA
