Re: Who\'s Gearing up for Colorado?

Dave King,

I will waive to you as I pass you on the highway going the other way. I am heading to Maryland (Dorchester County) to go Sika Deer hunting during their early muzzleloader season (Oct 16-18). We have about 1800 acrea that borders the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. I am meeting up with my father and two younger brothers.

Matt

Dave, on your way down I-25 past Pueblo stop in and I'll buy you guys lunch or whatever. Just take the Abriendo exit, get in the right lane, and go until the road T's into a circle. My house is the white one that you'd drive right into if you didn't turn at the T. You can see it from way down Abriendo, 2 minutes from the interstate. Man oh man, i'd love to talk long-range with you and friends. Got a bighorn i took with my XP i'd like to show you as well. Give me a call @ 719-542-5725, or e-mail me.

P.S. Love to talk about crabbin' on the bay, and my old stomping grounds around Glen Burnie. Or maybe chuck shooting in Western MD.

Good luck over there... watch out for the skeeters.

I believe I may try to hook up...I'm a high-speed type traveler and I know I'm going to be hauling ass to get to camp on Friday evening. I'll give it a try one way or the other.

REMEMBER PICTURES YOU GUYS, I WANNA SEE LOTS OF PICTURES POSTED HERE AFTER THE SEASON. The picture postings from last year were great. Lets make this the best year yet for pictures. Possible topics are: your rifle system, the view from your shooting spot, any game animals you harvest, ect... These pictures are gonna help those of us who can't make it this year. Thanks a bunch in advance.

Re: Who\'s Gearing up for Colorado?

Making final prep for the trip... I leave Maryland (15 Oct 2003) Wednesday morning heading west on US70.

Decided to take the 308 Win and 6.5 x 284... loaded some 165 Ballistic Tips for the 308 and some 140 GameKings for the 6.5 x 284... I'll take along a few match loads too just in case I catch too much grief about using poorly selected hunting bullets.

Camping for 3 days at just under 10,000 ft (one elevation line under 10,000 so about 9,800ft) gonna sleep in the back of the truck or in a small two-man tent depending on conditions. We'll send the next three days staying in a motel and hunting a different area then off for a short visit and head back to home.
