Not the buck I burned my points for but a great deer none the less. This adventure stared last year when I heard of a huge buck one of my clients spotted while driving back and forth to his elk hunting spot. The buck was a buck of a lifetime he said. I heard a rumor that a pair of 230 sheds were found this past spring and I knew this was my deer. I relocated the big buck in June and never saw him again as I live 5 hrs away from the unit and couldn't scout as much as I would have liked to. The few times I was able to scout I saw very few deer. Unfortunately I missed the season opener as we had a death in the family and the massive deer was killed by another hunter. I spent two weeks hunting off and on until I finally turned up this deer. Second largest/mature deer I could find. Not exactly a target rich environment as the deer densities were low, weather was hot and the moon full. Certainly proud to have sealed the deal on this critter.

Thanks guys! It was a good hunt but not my favorite. I pretty much decided I prefer the high-country deer hunts over the sage or timbered tree hunts. At least compared to the hunt I was on. I may kill myself in the high-country hiking around but at least I feel engaged and will find deer. The mental aspect of going 1-2 days without seeing a single deer is tough and not the kind of hunt I'll be looking for anytime in the near future. I guess I've been spoiled to hunt the units I'm familiar with over the past 13 years!
