(author) It was!!! I let it sit over night and fried some cubes for lunch and threw them in and it even had more flavor! Gonna take the leftover juice and make rice with it and cook up a mule deer roast
Ran into this young at heart hunter on the Utah Nevada border while taking a break on my Muley hunt. Day 10 or so I think it was, all the days run together at some point. Being from my neck of the woods this was his first Elk hunt after chasing Whitetails for almost 70 years. He was having difficulty breathing at the higher altitudes, and his age was a factor but he was not hindered. He said that he trained and hiked well before his hunt, but at 800 feet it was a rough transition to 8000 feet. His spirits were high and he said even if he didn't harvest it had been a pleasure coming out to hunt this type of country. As you see he got it done!!!! Here is to making adjustments, not making excuses, and overcoming obstacles! Nice 650 yard shot!!!!
Be proud of senior citizens who get out there and compete with people half their age, instead of staying home with all the aches and pains. Pray u can do it when you reach his age. He deserves a lot of credit. When u encounter an older Hunter be supportive and protective of him or her. You don't know that the energy he put in is equal to anyone else. Don't make fun we all r one accident away from never climbing a hill again.
7th day of chasing Desert Muleys in 90 degree weather when all of a sudden the weather changes. Sitting in soft sand, the sky opens up and releases lighting across the sky and the ground shakes from the thunder. Your safety device sounds an alert for flash floods and rain begins to fall. Eventhough you are miles from a main road you give a smile saying to yourself... "you have been here before, you have have made it through worse...., you got this." You look over at your hunting partner and realize they have not encountered anything like this and there is worry on thier breath.... you say a few words of encouragement, smile, and head back to safety. Moral of the story is have a plan of safety for everyone that you bring out because ultimately they are your responsibility. Have fun, shoot straight, and be safe....
