It is important that you are comfortable and practiced in taking shots in many different positions. We are often faced with awkward angles, tall sage brush, wind, long stalks and anything else mother nature can throw at us. Mornings are often brisk in the early seasons with daytime highs in the 80’s, deeper into fall expect near freezing conditions to be the norm in the evenings and early mornings. It is not uncommon to have snow during our October hunts and IS common to have snow in November and December. Be prepared. No One Cares, Work Harder. Good Luck!
