2019 Arizona Elk, Idaho Whitetail, Utah Mule Deer
« on: December 09, 2019, 03:13:14 PM »
Kind of weird season for me in Washington.   The place where I saw a lot of bucks last year, I didn't even see a Whitetail.    I only spent 4 days hunting Washington.  I think more hunters and wolves were in my area. 

Arizona Elk was a Unit 1 archery tag special draw.    We watched him 4 times in 7 days.  I was finally able to get close enough to take him down. 

Utah hunt was the Southslope Yellowstone.   Its General season but nonresidents need 0-1 points to get a tag.   We hunted hard and only saw one mature mulie in 9 days.  I almost closed the deal on it but decided to pass in hopes to get him on the last day of the hunt.  I took this mulie on the last morning with a storm coming in.  This was my first time hunting Utah.  I would not recommend this unit.   Absurd amount of hunters and an abundance of 1.5 year old deer with access everywhere.   The three other hunters I went with shot fork horns. 

I bought an Idaho deer tag hoping I would have sometime to try it out, I had never  deer hunted in Idaho.   I hiked along the Salmon River for a day.  Spent a couple days near the Pack River and also the St. Joe.   I had about 6 days total invested.    I passed a couple smaller bucks and settled on this Whitetail.   

I also ran into a trapper in Idaho.   Good times

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
