Felt like I should post something. I seem to always struggle this time of year to balance my daily life and work schedule with going out and doing some hunting. Hopefully I'll have some more to post this week as I try to get out and at least do some scouting.
I was on a lion safari recently, I was sitting behind the driver's seat checking out the photographs I took that day and all of a sudden our vehicle was stopped. I looked front on the road and found nothing and I asked the driver why did he stop the vehicle as we haven't entered the lion safari zone yet, he whispered "looks like we have" by pointing his finger to my right. Just in a meter distance To my surprise there was this massive male lion resting calm very close to me and The window was wide open to my right which I didn't even notice... And there's the shot. My camera was mounted to a zoom lens by the way so I couldn't really get a wide angle shot. And the driver had to move the vehicle immediately since the window had an issue which was later noticed... Quite an experience 😍
“A hunt based only on trophies taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be. I have known many hunters who, returning empty-handed, have had nothing to say of the enjoyment of time spent in nature's outdoors.”-
Back Forty! Does anyone own hunting property? If so, what was your criteria? Were looking for 40+ acres with cover, a water source, and food. We’d like to be able to pull our camper there as well! We spent the day looking at properties out in Southwest Colorado, and found some really perfect spots.
