I don’t hunt for cheap meat I hunt for expensive horns  :sry:

And the only time it takes two days to Eastern Montana is in an ice storm otherwise we drive 13 hrs and a 1000 miles straight only stopping for fuel.

That said put in for the desert unit  :chuckle:

Well, Everett WA to Broadus MT is 1006 miles.  I seriously doubt you can drive that in 13 hours..........

Lots of deer before Broadus.  I leave my house at 5 am and have just enough time to do a quick scout before rolling into my hotel just as the sun sets.

No deer there
Don't do it
Yes put in for Desert unit :chuckle:
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.


What would life be without the thrill of the hunt ?

WOW.  When you leave western WA at 5 am, it is 6 am in Broadus MT.  In November sunset in Broadus is around 4:30 pm.  You must know one helluva short-cut.

Yeah, don't go to Broadus.  The mule deer I hunt don't seem to know they are in the wrong place.

Gosh reading this thread really glad I don't put in for points anymore. It appears hopeless and if and when you do draw the opportunity is less and less the more the years go by. I'll just keep saving and some day maybe go to Alberta or Saskatchewan and hunt trophy mule deer.

Live in the south sound and have been doing it for 20+ years  ;) leave at 5-6am make a couple stops so huntnphool can pee and get some more ice tea and pull in at 7:30-8-30 at night. Give or take depending on the 9 mountain passes and weather but this last year we had smooth sailing and did it in about 13 1/2. And I don’t hunt Broadus either but it is 1000 miles to spot x! Oh and it helps when phool drives the excursion has a massive tank and only one stop is needed for fuel when I drive I can make it in my Powerstroke on two stops and one last one in town just so I can top off before the morning hunt. Sounds like you might need a diesel with big tanks  ;)

Oh and having said all that I’d put in for the Desert  :tup:

 :yeah:

I got the 34 gallon tank in my F-150 for the express reason of being able to one stop it to my MT spot.  I can do it easily to pretty much any spot in MT now, before I used to practically coast into the first gas station in ID on fumes.

 We generally stop in Butte for fuel, I can use the restroom and get my Mcds unsweetened ice-t at the same stop.....next stop is Sheridan, Wyoming. ;)

One of my fishing buddies calls me "the camel."  In my youth, I drank 2 cups of coffee and a 2 liter of coke on his boat and didn't go until I we got back.

When my family joins, we usually stop once in WA, ID for gas, once in MT and then our destination.

When it's just me or me and my son, we can now stretch it to MT like huntnphool.  Start the pump, visit the facilities and get lunch out of the cooler.  By the time the pump stops, wheels up and eat on the road.  It's like I'm fleeing a forest fire, gotta get there as fast as possible.

You still haven't told me how you make it from Western WA to Broadus MT (1009 miles) in 10 1/2 hours.
