How many opening mornings of the rifle deer hunts have you guys made in a row? I have been afield on the start of the rifle deer hunt every year since my Dad first took me when I was 8, that was 30 years ago :shock: . I haven't hunted every year of those 30 years, I didn't start carrying a gun untill I was 16, and some years I have not had a tag, but I have at least been out in the mountains helping friends or family on there hunts. This year I killed a deer on the bow hunt and nobody in my family got a rifle tag so I find myself not having anybody to go with. I think I will just go up above the house and sit on a hill out of the way with my binocs and spotting scope and just watch what is going on. Got to keep the streak alive .
