D7 will be open this weekend for archery and that's where I'm headed. I'm going up high, about 7500 feet to be exact. I haven't had time to scout at all so I'm going in blind. Well not totally, because I know the area holds bucks. It's an area I've been hunting a few years now and always hear of other people having success in the area. Hopefully, it'll be me this time. I had a nice shot on a buck on last year's opening archery weekend but misjudge the distance because I did not have a range finder. I won't let the same mistake happen again if I should see one on Saturday.
It's going to be a hot one, over 100, I believe, so be sure to keep yourself hydrated! Good luck everyone.

TD, if you take chukar with a bow, please don't post it. I will be forced to curl up in the fetal position and :014: while I melt all my shotguns :lol:

I tried it once with a bow for chukar but all I ended up with was a $110 price tag. $60 dollars worth of broken arrows and another $50 worth of whiskey to ease the frustration of the $60 worth of broken arrows :rofl2:
