I accidentally shot a muley on the high hunt after 15 years straight of tagging blacktails. Combination of cats and massive amounts of hunters has our blacktail numbers painfully low

 :yeah:

I used to tag out on the logging road less than a mile from my house, now your lucky to see a deer off it.

Lots of predators though, cats,wolves, and bears.😤
Even after logging was basically non-existent on the local NF lands, I'd see at least ten deer each trip.  Now maybe only see two or three and usually after dark.  Have to go all the way to tree farms or high country for more deer.  At the time it was heavily blamed on hair-loss disease.  But interesting is if you go from the woods to the part of town without predators (cats), there are quite a few deer--and they went through hair loss too.

Its not worth it to me anymore. I can hunt every evening and weekend and hope to see a two point, or spend 7 days out of state and pick the buck I want

Roadkill Blacktail.

That doesn’t count.🤣 Unless you ran it over, and tagged it with your deer tag.😉

Which is illegal i might add. as some one whom has picked up several road kill there is zero reason to tag with your hunting tag.  :twocents:

The amazing thing is that you get to keep the horns so there isnt really any reason not to suck up the meat, which is great, and do a euro on the horns.
