    Excellent story telling! Way to persevere and stick with it despite all hurdles. Too bad about losing 200lbs of fish - ouch! Bet that doe is going to taste better than previous years. Well done and thanks for taking the time to share

    Interesting point I forgot...

    That final day in Rock Creek we saw a healthy Cougar.
    Season was open.
    Had a tag.
    But don't usually carry a rifle when bowhunting (obvious reasons).
    It was out just over 100 yards.

    May have to revisit the rifle packing consideration down the road...

    Cheers,

    Re: Late Season Archery - The Ups & Downs

    Thanks for sharing the great story. I keep telling myself that one of these years I should do the late season out there. Brrr This year it seemed warmer than the last few, but that snow!! Wow

    I ended up camped along the mainline for a few days, couldn't get the rig up the first hill. I came across a bow hunters tree stand in the timber, not too far off the road, great spot intersecting a few game trails.
    I had one opportunity at a small buck & left him be, got a glimpse of another buck but he gave me the slip.
