Re: That time of year again - Colorado hunt planning
Whoa there, lets not get your panties in a bunch now. Who said I'm heading to Wyoming and challenging anybody? QuietHunter was the one that made the comment that his Foxtrotter was only beat up the hill once and it was by a Missouri mule - he said it, not me. Now I'd be the last one to dispute what he said, because no one needs to tell me what a fast walking mule is capable of doing in the mountains, I know I've owned too many of them. So WyoWhisper you can go out and tell ol' Dusty he can rest easy now and not to worry, I won't be bringing some mean ol' mule out to spank his butt and make him look bad.

To tell you the truth I don't even like a fast walking mule to hunt on, you just miss seeing too much game when your haulin' ass down the trail. I like one that'll take it easy and go wherever I point it, can climb like a mountain goat, will stand quietly while I'm shooting, won't panic in a bad situation, and most importantly can spot game 5 minutes before I do. Thats my idea of a good hunting mule.
Now as far as the target knobs go, I never had any problems with mine either - they worked just fine. Rather it was my stinkin' scabbard that gave me fits cause I couldn't get my gun out of it quickly because the darn knobs stuck out so far. Now if I could of found a scabbard that would of worked with them on, they'd probably still be on my scope today. But even if they were I probably wouldn't use them all that much, because for my style of hunting the dot system works out better.
So calm down, rest easy, and don't let yourself get all lathered up. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
