WA "High Buck Season"

Just spent three days up in Washington's Cascades. Backpacked in for the "high buck" season, but alas, only found a doe mulie... Conditions were bad, unusually warm and dry and there was a big, nearly full, moon. No mulie for me, but I sure had fun packing in and giving it another try. Here's a few photos from the trip:

A mountainside I spent hours glassing each day:

Seems the few deer in the area stayed holed up in the cooler, green forests instead of coming out and offering me a shot. I went in after them, but movement was noisy and I didn't even get a shot... Phooey.

Still, it was a great little three-day trip. Regards, Guy

    Great looking pics. Been there, done that. Sometimes they are all over but sometimes you can't find anything and like you said, the weather can make or brake you. At least the country is pretty up there this time of year.

    There will be another time and hopefully all your ducks get lined up in a row and you get to pack one out.;)

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Some times that's all we bring back, but the walk, the memories, the country is to me worth it.

    HEBREWS 13:8
    Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

    Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
    also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
    It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
    to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

    ---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

    Edit: Great shots! Thanks for sharing. Is that in the Pasayten Wilderness? Jon

    Nice pics Guy! I really wanted to go out for the high buck hunt, but the weather has been so crappy (for hunting) and my knee is still bugging me. Oh well, I may have to try to sneak out this weekend anyway for a little horseback ride

    That which does not kill me......has made a huge tactical error
