That's a real nice Blacktail. It's amazing how hard those bugggers can be to hunt. Great buck.

    Great horns and an ENORMOUS body, you didnt happen to get a chance to weigh it did you? Looks like a Cascade "benchleg" to me. More than likely you had to quarter it up and pack out on your back I'm sure.
    ps--good shot also.

    it was at a pretty stinking low elevation to be a benchleg, but it is still east of I-5 so technically it would be.

    did not weigh the body, but dang it was heavy. really really heavy. yes, we quartered it up, and packed it out.


    thanks again guys

    Simply an AWESOME blacktail, and nice shootin'. I've taken some decent blacktails, but none like that!

    I hunted Silvies unit (east) this year (tag soup to show for it...), but am hunting the valley on my 600 series Willamette tag now (hair tag / through Feb 28!). Jumped a few this morning but no shooters.

    good luck with the 600 tag! i hope you get a big one!

    i'll draw that tag next year, and have some good private ground to hunt in the valley. can't beat the hunt dates on that one.
