Another piece of advice....don't pass on an animal you would shoot on the last day if your just looking for meat
Got that right! It may be the only one you see all season.

I live in the 550 and there have been a lot of deer around lately.
I suppose that archery hunters could be pushing them out of the woods and into view.

:yeah: As stated, don't look for "a deer", look for parts of a deer. An ear or tail flick, a tiny white spot, a part of a leg, a short horizontal line that seems out of place or different from the surrounding area (it just may turn out to be a deer's back or belly). Use your binos even in timber with short sight distance, you will be surprised what you may see.  :twocents:

Who is Boyd Iverson and should I know him?  :o  :dunno:

Man, you must have a memory like a steel trap.
I read this a while back and missed the reference.
Impressive.

Those pics are a perfect example of Blacktail hunting!
Notice in everyone you are already busted?
That is usually the case, but if you move slowly, make little noise, you can usually get a shot.
The hard part sometimes is figuring out where the vitals are. I have had to resort to head shots a couple of times.
IF you see one deer, glass everything, there is usually more.

As Muzbuster said, http://www.blacktailtrophytactics.com/ is a great blacktail hunting resource.

This is great info. I'm in the exact same boat as MC, this is my first year and I've had all the same questions about western deer too. I see I joined the right forum. Thank you all for this input, and resources. Awesome.

That was Scout that mentions the book not me, I have never seen it or read it.
Think I will pick me up a copy. I was just passing on what I have learned and useful things that have been passed on to me from family members.
