Several western states could really use a mild winter, lets hope so

Absolutely!  I am hoping to see a bit of recovery in our local whitetail herds here in Whitman County.  Two years of bluetongue and a hard winter were not kind to deer numbers.

They've still been hanging out in the area all winter though.  I've only seen a handful from the road, but gain any elevation (hiking Royal Columns is always fun) and you'll find them.  Went up last Thursday and the ridgelines were crawling.  Had to have been 1k or so of them on the hills above the feeding station.

Watching them from 10 yards is one of my favorite things to do in the winter, but it's hard not to be happy for them with the season we've had.  Cheers to fat cows and healthy calves!

Only an idiot would shed hunt there before opener.  WDFW has cameras all over the place there.
