The mule deer are always bedding down between us the our neighbor. They don't seem to mind Porter until he growls at them for fun.

We don't have near the grasslands you've got. Most of our neighbor hood looks like a black diamond ski run. Dense pines with needles on the forest floor. Not much to eat.

I drew both a Elk, cow and Deer, doe tag for 2nd season this year. First time I've got a deer tag in a few years

Excellent Corbet.

And thanks for reminding me to check!

I drew Deer second season and Elk for third. Time to start scouting.

I didn't draw anything this year, but my father-in-law drew a buck tag for unit 201. Hopefully I can take some time off to go help him find a nice one.

Nice! We drew our 201 bucks last year. Have you hunted it before? Some amazing critters up there! Unfortunately, it is also the land of 3 point genetics. Many trophy class bucks with only 3 points on one side. I would be happy to share some area insights with you ....just not on line.

I haven't hunted it, but both my father-in-law and my uncle have hunted both bucks and bull elk up there. I should have one or two more years for a buck license up there and 8 - 10 more years for a bull tag.

If you're going to the meeting next week, I'll try and pick your brain then.

My parents live down in that part of the state (Bayfield). Every year I threaten to get an archery deer tag, sit out on their balcony, drink coffee, and thin their herd by 1.

That sounds like a great plan. Better than walking around in the forest all day. I passed a heard of Bucks just outside Bayfield tonight.

Anyone been out yet? (archery)

Bridger and I went out scouting last weekend along with the bird gun. Did not see anything but signs of deer. Going back again to swap memory cards in the camera Sunday before the games start.

Bridger working the cow call and glassing.
