Spot & Stalk or Ambush

After reading Shawn's article, I wonder how most of us hunt western deer.

My local blacktail are not predictable enough to ambush.

So, grab a high point, glass every open spot within 1500 yards, spot them feeding in the open, then hope to find a shooting platform within a few hundred yards.

Or, sneak through the trees, and try to be quieter than they are. Of course, they can sense a valid tag long before you can see them, so this doesn't always work.

Hiking with a backpack on and going wherever I want to go and jump shooting bucks has been my most favorite way to hunt deer but now poking one across the canyon with a good long range rifle is becoming my second most favorite way to hunt them. With all the technical advances itís like a new game and Iím having fun.

With the open plains in South Dakota it's all about spotting them and then stalking them. I try to get in as close as possible.

I was going to reply to the pole, but I technically don't hunt "western" White tail. I hunt Just east of the Mississippi lol. -- I'm lazy, I ambush from a tried and true spot.
