TBH 2020 Season

#1
Off season training has been in full swing since January. Been running and lifting like crazy. Just went on a 30 mile hike with 7000 ft of gain and a 50 pound pack on Saturday with some buddies. We were supposed to do 20 on Sunday but we were up high on Mt. St. Helens and a huge storm whipped our tents around all night and soaked us in the morning so we booked it back 4.5 miles to the trucks. Most people had fancy gear with pack weights of 25-35 pounds. I was stuck with 50 pounds since I haven’t been able to afford the top quality stuff yet.






Been getting in some long runs as well.


Two weeks ago I finally bought a left handed bow because I’m left eye dominant. 5 deer and 4 turkeys missed with a bow last year was more than enough motivation. I got a used 80# Hoyt Helix Ultra. I’m slowly working my way into shape with it. Groups are great at 20 but I haven’t moved back from there yet.

I just graduated at the top of my class with a double major in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Sadly with covid all of the entry level jobs have closed for the past few months. I’m stuck staying at my dads and applying for anything I can find all across the west.

I’ve got enough saved up that I can still hunt a lot in September. Based on what I’m seeing I should have a job my October.

Current hunt schedule:

Arizona opener: August 21
Oregon opener: August 29
Arrive in NM: September 3
Washington opener: September 15ish

Oregon and NM should definitely happen but AZ and WA or dependent upon timing of a few things and getting a job lined up.

Good luck fellers!

That's awesome, man! Congrats! Hopefully things will get back to normal soon with the job market.

Damnit Tanner! Well done!!!!

I’ve been following your fishing adventures as well. Was that a tiny Ling the other day off the surf? I’m sure others would love to see those also. You are living a life most of us dream of! Keep it up and update us when you can. Or at least text me pics😂.

I think it was just a little sculpin but I guess it might’ve been a baby ling?


Spent today out scouting some elk spots in Washington, lifting, running and shooting. While scouting I watched a bobcat pounce on a grouse and miss it.
