After two years trying to get a mule deer in WA and one year coming close but not connecting over in Idaho, I finally got it done in my second year hunting ID:



I was thrilled with how it happened. I think I spotted this deer and a similar buck the night before the opener, stuck around that spot for a couple days, and relocated him for a classic spot & stalk the morning after a nasty high-elevation wind/sleet storm. It was six miles from the road, half of that off-trail. There were no other hunters around for miles and hundreds of elk (see the hilltop in the background of the pic), with some of the bulls bugling up a storm. Awesome experience in the mountains.

Nice buck grats.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Great Deer Everyone!  They are falling!  Harbor, that looks like the BT I am hoping to find in this hole next month!

Duramax, that is a great BT, very tall too!
