Butchers are usually good at live weight estimates. I know over here they weigh with head and hide off for calculating there cut and wrap fee.

    Nice. While I was Elk hunting last year I saw a monster blacktail, and my buddy who was on the opposite side of this particular ridge saw another. Both had large eye guards!! I hope to find one of those brutes this year.

    The only reason I don't hunt Blacktail is I don't care to hunt in the mud and rain.

    I hear that. It surely was a mud and rain hunt last year. Although the day I got that buck, it was calm and sunny, with only a very slight breeze. The ground was still wet, and where there was no vegetation it was muddy. I had plans for a mule deer hunt near Mazama, but the few partners I had all backed out. I should have just went alone. I am still trying to decide for this year, head east, or go for another black tail.

    This is one of the few states where you have all three species to hunt. I will put in for the multi season tag that way you can hunt all three weapons and hunt from Sept through Dec.

    Guaranteed for deer. Little harder for Elk. $190 though.
