You lucky dogs...My brother got his first tag in SD last season he said he has never walked,squat run ran down hill ever in his life..Bring a water pack you will need it. he lost a good 10lbs the first week.
I just moved to the Tri-cities and am planning to start hunting the Blues in the fall. I am interested in getting a couple people together that are in shape and plan to hunt the area for a few years. If interested drop me a note. I'm planning time over the summer to scout.
That is my plan as well I am planning a trip hopefully the first part of june then around the 4th of july and the either the middle of august or september. But this all depends on the work schedule it is hard to plan anything more than a few days ahead of time. Oh and welcome to the site coltsrcul.
The pack trails come from the panjab mostly and they do start at the godman area and go due south. Hunt southeast to french rigde area and past to GMU boundry. Be prepared, hard huntin dude. (spike only)
What part do you plan on going? My old man is 61 now if he doesn't want to go we can plan somethig. Mule deer is my passion and backpack hunting is the way I hunt. Mostly ( Blue Mountian)and Pasaytian high country.
Somewhere south east of Dayton up in the mountains... that's about as close as I can get to where I live. If I get the area down I'll deer. Again I don't know the area so I'm planning on doing a bunch of scouting beforehand.
I am looking at my maps and it looks like per your advice we should pack in from east of godman somewhere in the rainbow creek area or even a skoshe more east. The way it looks to me that would put us in between the trails from godman and the one on the gmu border. Then hunt between fr 4608 and butte creek and between rainbow creek and french ridge. So what do you think am I starting to get on the right track. Thank you very much for your help.
