I'm sitting watching a bachelor group of 10 bucks and about 10 dos just joined up, there is one real good shooter and one other 4x4 is probably a shooter too. The other guide Nick has both hunters on the other side of the mountain and headed my way. I'm hoping they can get here and get on them.

By the time the other guys got here the deer had moved up the canyon out of sight we decided we're going to wait till tomorrow and try to catch him out in the open again at first light. I couldn't tell on the small phone screen if I was on the right buck, but one of them is a definite shooter.

We are hunting my Utah ranch lease for mule deer, we saw over 150 deer yesterday on the property. Last night each hunter had chances at tall with good mass 24" to 26" bucks standing broadside. Multiple misses at both bucks! This morning the guys went after the big buck I spotted yesterday morning, they had him broadside at 256 yards, the deer had no idea anyone was there, it was missed twice! Later in the morning another nice buck broadside at 60 yards, two misses standing and then emptied the rifle at him running away. Fortunately we don't think any deer have been wounded. My fingers are crossed for a miracle!  :dunno:

That was fast, miracle delivered!
Normally we hold out for the best bucks we can get, at lunch today we decided to let them shoot at any buck they want to shoot that is close rather than suggest passing bucks that are close targets to look for big bucks. This evening right at sundown the "Young Miracle Buck" stood proudly daring any hunter to give it a go. First shot was a hit, then six follow up shots and the deer went down, guide Nick ran over and finished the buck off with his knife. It's not a big buck but the hunter is happy that he hit a deer and that's what matters, hunting is in the eyes of the beholder. Congrats is in order!

The other hunter ran out of cartridges for one gun, we convinced him to shoot the second gun at a target again, 2 shots missed the target, 2 shots in the black. This ranch is way out in Egypt, it's 1.5 hour to 2 hour drive each way to get more cartridges and he only has a few left so we quit shooting, we'll cross our fingers and hope for the best. This hunter killed a 25" buck with us last year, he says he's holding out for one of the bigger bucks, he's missed two big ones so far, I sure hope there's a big "Miracle Buck" on the ranch, maybe the third time will be a charm?

Another Buck Down
This morning we missed a dandy mid 160's buck. A smaller buck was spotted later in the morning that was closer and the hunter hit that buck, there was a tracking job into the bottom of a big canyon and another shot finished the buck. The guys are dragging it out now, I haven't seen a photo yet, but they said it's just a young 3x3. I'm disappointed the five big bucks were missed and I'm sure the hunters wished they would have hit them too, I guess that's hunting, but I'm really glad we were able to get him a deer before he ran out of cartridges, I think he has one cartridge left. Congrats is in order again!  :tup:

Wow. Sounds like some range time is needed there, or a thorough check of equipment for something loose.

I've had my days though too. I once shot 8 times in Wyoming at a deer standing broadside at 150 yards. He finally left, and the next buck I saw was 250 yards away, dropped him in one shot.  :dunno:

I've also emptied my gun at a buck standing no more than 60 yards away and then tried in a panic to load my chapstick into my gun thinking it was a cartridge.  :chuckle:

Everyone has their days  :)

Idaho Mule Deer
Really big buck spotted at long distance last night, guide Roger and his hunter Tariq are after it this morning, I have my fingers crossed. A nice 24"ish buck missed at 206 yards with Nick. Ray and his hunter had a good buck come in behind them at close range, the buck managed to elude a clear shot, several other bucks spotted with no shots taken, hunters are after them again today.

This buck taken at a drop camp and the message from the hunter: "Thank you Bearpaw Outfitters for your guidance!! Without you I never would have killed the biggest buck of my life! -Tyson"

It's always an eventful week just at the start of my rifle season.

Two days ago we set a drop camp and I was coming off the mountain after dark with the horse trailer, there was a bad wash that I tried to go around and a rock I didn't see in the weeds kicked up and caught and broke one leaf spring, the axle broke loose and hung up on the fender, I had to stop, unload the horse trailer and leave it. We spent part of two days getting the right equipment and getting that axle fixed which set us way behind. I lease horses, I sold my own horses several years ago as it's easier to lease horses and I have an excellent source for first class stock. This year we got a few different horses, they overall are a little bigger, the surprise is that I can't get six in my trailer, so I got on the internet and located a few trailers, made some calls, met a guy after dark, bought his trailer on the side of a back road, I handed over thousands of dollars and he handed over a title, we shook hands and he said "that's some good after dark back road business"!  :chuckle:

We parted and I headed for the lodge to see how the guys there are doing, they saw a couple dozen elk and 13 bucks, they passed a bunch of the bucks, missed 4 bucks, almost got a shot at a really big buck, and wounded a good 4x5 buck which the guide tracked and jumped so he backed off and they have to look again in the morning. Part of the hunters didn't hunt, they didn't feel good, I think it's altitude sickness, they are sleeping at 7800 and hunting close to 9000, they said they feel better this evening, hopefully they'll feel like hunting tomorrow.  :dunno:

At the same time I was visiting the lodge, three of my guides packed in another drop camp after dark, getting back at 2AM, now we are almost caught back up, great job guys!  :IBCOOL:

I had to do a little late night shopping at WalMart, needed more Buddy heaters, some hoses, mantles, new pots and skillets for one of the cooks, 3 cases of TP, some portable propane canisters, and some bee spray for one of the camps that has hornets trying to build a nest in the top of the tent. Oh yeah, thankfully I remembered the printer ink, ran out yesterday!  :dunno:

I had some leftover chicken and now I'm headed up to that camp to deliver the bee spray and a new heater. I better get going, I've got to make the round trip  and get back in time to visit another camp of hunters at breakfast to see how they are doing. Hopefully my next post will have a nice 4x5 buck!  :dunno:

I had 5 guys cancel from my Utah Ranch Hunt. This hunt keeps getting better and better, if anyone wants to squeeze in a great mule deer hunt please contact me. Some days we see over 100 deer!

Some last year bucks... our first two hunters this year missed 5 bucks similar to the two largest in the photos! All 5 were clean misses, those bucks are still there. :mgun:

We've been busy with mule deer hunting in Idaho, so far well over 20 bucks missed and 8 bucks killed. Elk season opened 3 days ago, nearly 20 bulls spotted, 2 bulls missed, 1 5x5 killed, we are onto three different big bulls, all well over 300 class, one might go 370ish, probably the biggest bull we've ever seen in Idaho, we've seen him twice, the guide and a father and two sons are after him again today. The bull is in a very rugged remote location that is hard to get to, the father and one son rested all day yesterday, the other son hunted and shot a buck yesterday, all three of them are going with the guide today after that big bull, I hope the dad can make it in, my fingers are crossed for big bull pics!

We have one hunter in camp who is tagged out with two bucks and the 5x5 bull, he wanted to take home lots of meat. First day he hammered the 3x3, on the third day he nailed a world record smallest 3x3 (camp humor, it actually has 3 points on each side at least an inch, but is barely legal) and he got the 5x5 bull yesterday. He was downstairs playing his guitar and singing this morning. No kidding! I hear him playing and singing again right now! :chuckle:

Usually when bucks are in velvet it's because they have no testes, jimmy hit this deer you know where, so we really don't know if he blew them off or if the buck never had any? It was a 1 shot kill, I guess that can be a deadly shot!

Rough roads have been taking their toll, we have three trucks broke down, guides had to go to town yesterday at lunch to buy parts, sensors, brake lines and rent a welder to weld a shock mount back in place. Every available vehicle is being used or broke down at the moment!  :yike:

I was talking to the local taxidermist, the winter kill was worse than F&G thought, he said a lot of hunters are not seeing much, I'm really happy we have see as much game as we have considering most other hunters aren't seeing much.  :IBCOOL:
