Re: 2012 Washington State High Buck Hunt

What a great hunt! You guys had a plan and it worked. Glad to see the Bergers put the bucks down fast as that saved you a lot of work gettng them out. Nice going to both of you, it might be a while before you top this hunt. Thanks for sharing the story and pics, beautiful country for sure!

Jeff

Re: 2012 Washington State High Buck Hunt

Thanks, guys!

Roy, we camouflaged ourselves as 'nature loving' backpackers and not hunters and the deer were then visibly unconcerned about us! The ploy worked well! No, after the shots, we headed back to camp (100 yds away) to unload virtually everything we could from our packs before heading down the hill to the deer. No reason to pack up any more than you have to and it was also getting hot! The white wicking layers are from summer mountaineering--keeps you warm but not so hot in the sun when it's hot and it was quite warm. I've never worn sunglasses and shorts up there, but they sure helped.

Re: 2012 Washington State High Buck Hunt

jmden, great story and very nice buck. I love the camp photos also. Just picked up a tarptent contrail and have a spot just like that picked out up in the Salmon area in Idaho for opening week-----can hardly wait. I don't think we'll disguise ourselves as nature loving backpackers----this is Idaho for gods sake. I think we'll go as wolf howlers..................

Nice to see someone else use the quads that god gave you.

Nice high country buck. I am just too out of shape and too old to do it anymore. See any wolf sign up that high?
