Blacktail Vid part 1 of 3
« on: April 05, 2018, 10:59:47 AM »
Here is the first part of some footage Ive edited up from the last couple years of blacktail hunting/ scouting.  Hoping to tell a bit of a story in the process of all the adventures of the past few years.  I will post part 2 and 3 up as soon as they are edited, probably be a few weeks.  enjoy :tup:

Nice stuff man. Going to be a lot of people jonesin for the high country after that :)

The high country does a pretty good job of weeding people out on its own though
1. a lot more work to get in and especially out once succesfull
2. much lower animal densities than down lower especially when it comes to deer
3. It can be a punishing place to hunt weather, bugs, cliffs, exposure, snow, heavier rain
4. takes a lot more time to learn because the animals are more spread out and there is no such thing as a morning or after work scouting trip.

I do it for the experience and the adventrure and enjoy all the hard work

You're completely right, I'm not suggesting you're doing anyone a disservice. People will still drool and dream a little  :chuckle:

 My favorite part of your video is of that beautiful blonde young lady and her huge blacktail buck!

Iíll never forgot the day that beast went down, nothing like daughters getting their share! I felt my eyes bulge a little when that heavy left side showed from behind a tree! I remember sitting down on that ridge behind a rock head down just waiting for the shot because I couldnít handle the anticipation and didnít want to risk winding it before Mandi had the chance to shoot
