Seen 9 moose in the area and 4 that were across the way into mount spokane north area. They stand out well even at a distance when moving through a clear-cut. Thanks everyone and yes nothing better than sharing such a monumental hunt with your family. That's what it's all about. That and a full freezer full of great quality meat. I hope you all have an opportunity to have a trip like this with one of the highly sought after tags. You and anyone with you won't ever forget it.
All Other Gear / Re: First Lite Corrugate Guide jacket
« Last post by HAGEMANIAC on Today at 07:53:43 PM »
I've run the corrugate guide jacket and pant this year.  Pants have been bullet proof so far, through turkey, many hikes, bear, early archery and now a Utah rifle hunt.  The jacket is thin, it will not keep you warm or dry.  It does block the wind fairly well. I run a wick hoody and a Kalmath hoody underneath if i need it, and have been comfortable down to 30 and pretty steady winds in Utah.  IMO, the jacket is good for blocking wind, or protecting more fragile base layers or down jackets, but it is not built to keep you warm or dry. Overall I have been happy with it, but have also kept my expectations realistic.

I'm 5'11" and 170 and run the Large.  I originally got the medium and the size was good, but it was too short through the torso. I have some extra room in the large, but the length was much better.
Who put this together for you?

I bought it from a local store, a guy had it on consignment so I am unsure of the builder.

Yeah longest shot I had made prior to this was 360ish.  Conditions were perfect for this one.  Deer wouldn't stay still but I had time to get prone, and get in the zone.  Was hunting a new area, so it was nice to get one on the ground.  Swore I was going to hold out for a solid 3 or better, but you know how that goes.
Deer Hunting / Re: Blacktail Down and Rutting Hard

Excellent buck, great job!

In relation to the antlers, blacktail are prone to all kinds of goofy antler configurations. I know a guy that's killed two near Darrington that had similar antler configurations that ones left side. The all off the main beam is consistent with Whitetail, that's what we recognize it as, but it happens in blacktail as well as mule deer. A close friend killed a whopper Mule Deer in sage brush of Yakima County a few years ago that had all antler points of the main beam. It happens.

Getting out tomorrow? You should...... After this chunk of weather, small storm w/wind, rain (at least in my area) scheduled to end before dawn, the BT should be shaking and a’ moving come morning’s first light. Good luck you wild bohemians  ;)

I'll be out for sure. May listen to a little Queen on the way.
