All that’s gold …

8 11 2022

Back to ponies from creepy crawlies! 🙂 The very lovely Cassidy Rain watched a young buck trot and stot below the band. I love all the golds in this image (and if you don’t think bay is *gold* you’re missing out!).

Sunday was the last day of Colorado’s second rifle hunting season, and it’s a relief. There were more hunters in Disappointment Valley during second season this year than past years, which was a fast-forward of the stress that we always having during third season, when the wheeled, noisy hordes really descend upon us. That starts Saturday, but until then, we have a reprieve of quiet.

Fall gold and mustang gold. They go together perfectly! And I’ve been thinking about you, TJ. The hordes are on their way and we are all bracing ourselves. Hopefully none of them will disturb our mustangs.

Usually, they’re pretty good around the mustangs … but I don’t breathe easy until third season is done. Until then, we’re just watchful. 🙂

I am glad too for your “golden” quiet now.

It’s brief but appreciated!

I feel the same way about hunting season. One more, right?

Two – third and fourth rifle seasons (these are for deer/elk, which are the big ones here).

thank you — I was trying to figure that out last night. Deer and elk are the big deals here, too. Parts of my Refuge are “huntable” because of over-population. I’m told. I have heard shots way out there and saw some lost hunters from Washington the other day who’d apparently won the draw.

I always check this site before the seasons start (in August): https://cpw.state.co.us/thingstodo/Pages/BigGameDatesandFees.aspx

That’s just for the big game, not birds, etc. If you’re hearing shots now, they shouldn’t be after deer or elk.
