Last weekend, my buddy Dan Carter of â€śCaptain Danâ€™s SEOK Expeditionsâ€ť took Koby and me down to a place he has hunted for several years in the national forest near Billy Creek. We went down Thursday and did some scouting, so we would know what tree to put our climbers in.
Dan dropped Koby and me off, and headed to another spot that he had picked out for himself. We got in out stands before daylight and were ready for the day â€” well, I thought we were ready. I soon realized that I had not worn enough clothing.
