    D16 tag soup!

    Tag soup in the 16 for me as well... unfortunately life and work got in the way in a major way this season but what can you do. Freezer full of antelope from a Oct UT hunt definitely helps softens the blow. Already looking forward to next season.

Decided to give them both a test run with a 5lb batch of Polska Kielbasa using this year's UT antelope (mixed with some pork). Results well exceeded my expectations. Loosely followed a hybrid of Hank Shaw's recipe...

    GAIA GPS maps

    I run both. GAIA's web interface is pretty slick and I really like the ability to plan routes for navigating offroad. I also like their topo maps and its easier than ONX to download large areas for offline use. I bought a cheap Samsung tablet to run it in the truck with an 8" screen and am...
