175 Lick Creek - Buck Tag
« on: September 22, 2019, 05:52:28 PM »
Any chance the 1 successful permit holder in years past is a member on here? I would love to pick his or her brain about the hunt! I am the "lucky" tag holder for it this year. So much Onx map studying my eyes are burning...  :chuckle:

To other hunters in this unit, I want to target Mule Deer for the Hunt. Tail Bone ridge & east the way to go? I'm not opposed to turning it into a whitetail hunt if there's better opportunity. And to any forum police; Yes, it is a 3 point minimum either species hunt  8)

I'm more open then a *censored* house on dollar day for any advice!  :)

Tough tag.  Good luck. 
It's a TIKKA thing..., you may not understand.

Had it approximately 4-5 yrs ago when it was a quality tag. There is a reason itís now just a buck tag....there are some nice bucks there. Just a lot of pressure. Saw several bird hunters, and others (deer hunting) driving the roads, yes others, exercising there ancestoral rights, My biggest memory is being told by my brother who was watching my buddy and me through a spotting scope, about how a wolf followed us out a long ridge for quite awhile. Every time weíd stop so did the dog. When we went back to the spot the next day where my brother was watching us through his spotting scope (I wanted to see where the wolf was), sure enough not one but 3 wolves came across the saddle. Crazy, they worked methodically and with purpose, spacing, pace.  Definitely fun hunt, a lot of country. We saw more quality, or what I would say quality bucks during elk season. Shouldnít have a problem filling your tag. Pm me if you need anything

Good to know! I don't expect it to be all that great... So are you thinking after the general season elk hunters and the "ancestral hunters"  :chuckle: it pushes the bucks into hiding? Not to mention the dang wolves....

Did you kill?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

There are multiple ways to go about this hunt! Ways and areas! Itís a huge area with very steep ground or mellower ( not flat 😂) rolling open hills. I was up high last year in the snow during your season and didnít cut one deer track all day! Did cut wolf tracks though! If it was my tag Iíd start low and eliminate that ground!

We used to hunt there between pinkum butte and the smoothing iron steep country the reason you see big bucks during the elk season more people in the canyons to push them around my younger brother almost shot a muley buck in a snow storm down there during elk season said he couldn't believe the rack on on him also used to come off the tailbone and walk out was a lot younger back then

Good to know! I was told by another hunter who is familiar with the area, that the snow was super deep during general. So I think I'll be stuck to down low state lands anyways.

The snow is not that deep! Iíll tell you I saw a definite shooter up
Higher this week chasing does. Good luck! Stay away from Charlie creek very low numbers in there.
