I dont hunt the west side anymore. Im still drying out from the kast time, not to mention pulling stickers and thorns out of clothing. I wont say never again, but I will say I dont have ANY futre plans over there. Hats off to the folks who can pull it off tho.
I hunted my butt off for a few years over there and went farther and harder than anyone I talked to, and got 0000000 for my efforts, so I did it again the next year. Same result. And the next year, got a runt blacktail. And the next year00000 All I got was soaked, and full of stickers, and frusterated trying to find land to hunt where you didnt have to check in and out or wouldnt be bombarded by 1000's of dingalings in flame orange jumpsuits. NO THANKS! I need wide open spaces I guess.
I really have alot of respect for those that are successfull over there. Its NOT easy!!!!
