I'm taking my son who turns 8 in October with me on what will be his first big Western hunting trip. I'm looking at unit 704 or 705 for deer and I'm hoping to find some places that wont be too strenuous for him but that wont be road hunting either. This will be his first big hunting trip and I'm hoping to make the most of it. The idea is for us to pick an area and hunt it for the next few years to get familiar so we've got it somewhat figured out when he's old enough to get his first MT tag. Ive got the maps and have been cross referencing google earth with OnX and right now I've got my eye on some of the BLM and block management land but am not opposed to the national forest either. We'll be looking for mulies but wouldn't pass up a decent whitetail either. The plan is to try to find a good campsite to set up a wall tent and spend 5 or 6 days there. I plan to talk to some game wardens and biologists too but thought I'd ask around on here as well to see if anyone had any tips or advice on the area.

Thanks in advance and feel free to PM!

If I am correct, I hunted Unit 705 a few years back. Is that near Ekalaka? If so my son and I hunted some private land that Box Elder Creek ran through. Tons of Whitetails but few Mule deer. We both killed decent Whitetail bucks. People in Ekalaka were extremely nice.

Yes that’s the right area, that town is on the northern end of 705. I hadnt planned on going that far north but I may have to check that area out. Thanks!
