Congrats! Way to get it done!Western Hunting...nothing like it. I drove 1,500 miles one way to hunt in very windy and snowy conditions for 5 days. I was able to glass up 10-15 bucks per day along with seeing elk, goats, & yotes while the 3 camps back near the trailhead were seeing only 2-5 deer per day. One of the other "road hunters" asked, "Did you see the lights going straight up the mountain before dawn- those guys are insane?" All I could do was chuckle. I told him you've got to go where the deer are, they do not come to you.
Saw 4-5 good bucks and lots of 100"-125" bucks daily. I was able to take a nice buck on day 4 and my hunt partner took a nice buck day 5 before a big storm blew through.
