Yeah, this doesn't really qualify, but a heck of a lot of hiking was involved. My buddy and I have backpacked in for days at a time and have done well. This time however we hiked in every day into the drainage, and took two mule deer out of it. He got the buck, I had to settle for a doe. Just didn't see many bucks. Maybe they were up even higher? Likely.
Still we walked in. Found mulies. Shot them, his at 205 mine at 400. Boned them out and packed them out on our backs. It was a good high country, Wyoming hunt.
