Left Sunday morning at 5:00 am.....Arrived in Cascade, Montana 19 hours later.....Rained from the time I hit the Idaho border and rained for 2 days here.....1st thing I did Monday was go to Montana Fish & Wildlife office in Helena to get my Combo elk & deer tags.....Not!.....When I looked a month ago there were 10,000 tags still left. August 8th, they went on sale OTC.....Sold Out!.....In fact, with the exception of a couple of antlerless tags left, there isn't squat, even hunting with my bow.....Oh well, bought a upland & waterfowl license. Today was the 1st sunny day and my cousin Ronnie had got permission to hunt a prairie dog colony.....Dang things aren't like our ground squirrels. Not only are they smarter, but they're larger, and can take a hit from a .17 HMR no problem (John, I need a 22.250.....lol).....Finally made some head shots and recovered a few.....While looking for one, I hear the familiar sound of San Diego.....Buzzzzz.....My 1st prairie rattler.....He dead!.....Also, while driving around the colonies, I find a buck antelope deadhead (lots of these things around & Ronnie drew a tag). While driving around I've seen tons of deer, including a number of bucks on my cousins prop (where's my bow tag!....lol).....Today heading back, we came upon a bunch of bighorns.....Very cool. Now that I screwed up my BG hunts, we're heading for Canada earlier.....We'll be there Friday.....Almost no internet here, but hopefully more up there.....Updates as they come in...... .
