As a career firefighter I am able to spend many days hunting in the mountains of Colorado, which is one of the benefits of working 24 hr shifts with 4 days off in between each set.
When it comes to hunting, you should always be "good to go" and ready for the extreme element. What is extreme? It is whatever takes you outside of your element. Pushing yourself to the limit. Putting in the extra effort. Climbing the next ridge line and not stopping until you reach your goal.
Here are a few of my recent successful hunts...
