Kahlotus Rut Rifle Hunt
« on: July 09, 2017, 06:44:10 AM »
I have to say, I'm glad I finally put in for this hunt. I had 7 points this year for quality buck and I drew one of the 10 buck tags for this unit.

I used to hunt this all the time as a kid growing up in Connell. Already got in contact with a friend or two with some land. Can't wait to chase some bucks in November!

I know that the likelihood of killing a giant are small, but I'm excited to chase some deer during the rut. I have the goal of shooting either a real nice 4x4 (muledeer) or a 140"+ white tail. If I can't get one of those, I'm going for unique racks, my buddy had a big forky last year on his farm that was wider than his ears, so, he's going to be considered, if for no other reason than unique factor.

Anyone have any pics, stories or anything to share? Feel free to do so, thanks!

How long ago did you live in Connell? I grew up there as well.

That should be a fun hunt and does have the potential for a solid buck, but you already know that.

There are a few landowners I would be specifically seeking access from.

Shoot me a PM if you'd like.

Good luck!!

Thanks! I have a couple family friends letting me hunt their property. They've been seeing some good deer. There is supposed to be a giant 2pt on one of the farms...If he's as big as the rumors are, he's gonna get a second look. I also have some land down by the river that is gonna get looked at pretty hard. Can't wait to share the story, harvest or no.
