this was a tough year for me deer hunting, i hunted WY. around encampment seen lots of elk and moose hunted 6 days hard saw one set of tracks in the snow???, biologist said that region is a bad one for deer. (didn't do my homework) no blacktail in WA. saw two small buck passed on em, hunted idaho for 6 days whitetail never saw a buck, saw lots of beautiful country, i guess when i look back on it i shouldnt complain, alot of people dont even get to take these trips.
