October Sucks, BUT WATCH MY September HUNTS.

October Sucks, BUT WATCH MY September HUNTS.
Getting back to work and leaving the elk woods in the rearview mirror ALWAYS sucks. I had such a good time elk hunting as always. It is so challenging and everything is earned. Now back to work for the month of October. I have a very cool hunting coming up in November for Arizona elk, so in the meantime I'll be hanging close to home limited on time in the outdoors. My main objective is to work hard, train hard, and shoot a ton. I still have several trail cameras to retrieve out of the mountains which will have to happen on a weekend. So thankful for hunting and the time allowed out in God's country. Wednesday 10/5/2016 1. 3x3 65% Hang Squat Clean + Jerk #185 2. Front Squat Triples | #185,205,225,245,255 3.
