hunting trips
« on: April 09, 2017, 06:56:40 PM »
   Anyone got plans for out of state hunts or a hunt that you don't do every year. I applied for Montana muledeer. It's a rifle hunt. I have never hunted muledeer with a rifle. The drawing is the week of april 17th. It's exciting to have a hunt planned in a new area. I sure hope we get drawn.

i didn't get drawn in AZ bow for the 10th year.

i'm applying for SD deer. will find out in  a month

i'm signed up for a duck/ goose hunt in SK in october assuming everyone is healthy. my dad needed hernia surgery last year. this will be fun as we never have done a guided goose/duck hunt before. i'm going w/ my dad and his best friend. we have done many hunts over the years. this may be the last one. they are getting up in age and my dad is losing interest in hunting

good luck on your draw

I just returned from Montana and did get a 24 inch 3x3 Muley. I spotted the buck about 9am opening day at 722 yards. Because of the wind and the fact that I didn't feel good about it I did not try a long range shot. I watched it go into a brush filled wash and after 45 minutes of watching it didn't come out. I regrouped with my hunting partner and we dropped down a very steep drainage and I snuck up to 325 yards of the bedded buck. After taking my time and making a good shot my deer jumped up and another buck with a wide rack jumped up too. I put another shot into my buck and told my partner to shoot the other buck. He didn't see the other buck until it was to late so it got away. After deboning my buck we made a mistake and took a route we "thought" would get us back to camp. After climbing uphill for about 1.5 hours we came to a drainage we absolutely couldn't get across. We back tracked about 1/2 a mile and dropped into a drainage that was extremely steep. We found where deer had pawed out beds in the side of the drainage. We had to use our rifles as  walking sticks so we could get up the other side of the drainage. (empty chamber of coarse) It took 4 hours and about all we had to get back to camp. The next morning we went to the same vantage point and I spotted 2 fork horns. My hunting partner snuck up to about 300 yards and made a great shot on the bigger of the 2 bucks. This time we made the right decision and made the backpack trip out in a little over an hour.  Our plan was to stay a couple days to hunt Coyotes buck we learned the winds were suppose to get to 50 mph and we didn't think our tent could handle it so we packed up early and headed for home. We spent 3 nights in Montana. We drove about 1600 miles. We only got about 14 hours sleep total on the trip and we hunted in 20 - 30 mph hour winds.    I hope I get drawn again next year because I'll do it all over again in a heartbeat.     I hope everyone has as good a hunt as we had.
