Dave,

Those pictures make Colorado look absolutely horrible.  Coupled with the alleged presence of pot smokers and liberals, I'd suggest you flee immediately.

:D

Dave,

I'm trapped in Michigan but do spend a couple of months in the mountains each year.  As the boys get older, I'll spend more and more time there.  

I do understand some don't like the front range.  I just sneak away and find my little piece of heaven.  

For those that want to leave, great...no worries.  Enjoy your life somewhere else.  Life is too short.

This is all Colorado hunting except for one hunt in Nebraska, all on Public land or Walk-in. I tried to post it back then, but it was too long for Youtube then and just found it up so I thought nows a good time to show it.

Nice Randy!  That sage hen area looks kinda familiar.

The group I am concerned about may be looking for some "Rare Species of Spider" or a 'Rare Field Rat" .... something more like that ..... that can shut the area completely down of any human activity  

Well, the Pawnee Montane Skipper (a butterfly) helped to put the kibosh on the proposed Two Forks Reservoir.  Two Forks would have put Deckers and its fishery under water.  The Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse saved a whole lot of riparian habitat from development.

Another interesting thing about some folks out here in the west, they piss and moan about the loss of habitat and public access, but despise the "tree huggers" and "hippies" who want to preserve it.  I've given up trying to understand this mind set.

Hunters hating environmentalist doesn't make sense to me.  Seems to me their interests are pretty much the same.

I love the hunting and fishing here in Colorado , but have friends that think the same as you ; They think hunting is a 100 yard loop though the field and fishing is backing the truck up to a stream.

What is the significance of "4-20" to the pot crowd?  It makes April 20 important to them for some reason.

420 is code for possession of cannabis.   Origin is not well documented - someone forgot to do so - DOH - but might be LE code or might be connected to a group in CA known as the Waldos.

We don't need no stinky rallies in WA.  We're too chill already.  I never saw the attraction to or mystique of CO.

I thought it was a bible verse that could be interpreted to the use of Pot.

Chronicles 4:20

The lampstands of pure gold with their lamps, to burn in front of the inner sanctuary as prescribed;

it's nice the boy gets to spend time with his grandfather .....

Skiing invites come and go so quickly these days.

True story...I was skiing with my kids and some of their friends and after a couple of runs, one of them asked Andrew how old I was.  All he could see of me was a helmet, goggles, and a really white beard.  In his world, I could have been 35 or 75 and he hadn't a clue where I landed.

This is my youngest and me (or his grandpa) as we left a snowcat.  Yup, Colorado sucks.

I am afraid Colorado is what is to become the future of the west and it is what our sons , daughters and grandchildren have to look forward to.

The prime wildlife areas are in private hands and are  open to only a select few.....many of these are still truly wild lands.

I have had friends who were Commissioners of wildlife. They will not tell the hunting public but the elk herd in Colorado has become genetically inferior due to the unbalanced harvest of branch antlered bulls. The majority of breeding bulls in Colorado are two years old :O .

Your comments about not getting off the road are entertaining. I have backpacked and taken a bighorn ram, countless branch antlered bulls , numerous mule deer all on what you call wilderness experiences. I have recently killed two bulls 2-3 year olds (one a heard bull with 12 cows) that were freaks with deformed antlers.

I have stepped on human feces more times I would like to remember 15 miles from a trail head. I have been scoped twice by so-called hunters 10 miles in.

I kind of like most hippies and PHD'S. Usually they are quite     knowledgeable,and informed. What some people who have commented on here don't get is the ever increasing armchair environmentalists like I said don't know the difference between a mtn goat and a bighorn sheep.

This has been entertaining for me. The ones that still think Colorado has not changed, and that it is this wilderness experience.....please Keep Drinking the Kool-Aid  :p

They work just fine.  The older I get, the easier I want things.  These skis, for whatever reason, make it easy.

how do you think they would work on eastern ice... I'm liking easier as well.... the days of having my cuffs riveted for more stiffness, and ripping GS turns at warp speed  are gone.... fun is the order of the day now... (which I guess is whay I'm spending more and more time in the backcountry.... freshy snow)
