Big Game Hunting

Does anybody have plans for this fall's hunting season?

I am heading out to MT for Elk and Mule Deer. Kansas for Whitetail, and maybe some local hunts in the NorthEast...

If you are not careful mounting the 2 legged ones can get expensive.

November back country hunt in Idaho for elk and bear. That is, if the wolves haven't beaten me to the punch.

Are you going to mount the mule deer on your center console?

Looks like no 4 hoofed assistance this season, so I've been "investing" in a bunch of ultra-light mountaineering gear to backpack hunt. Anyone here backpack hunt? Should be fun at 7-9K feet 16 miles from the trailhead in November in the Frank Church Wilderness. When I was little, we'd drive in on a road my grand-dad had built during the depression to one of his ranches and that would get us about 5 more miles in, but it was closed thanks to Slick Willy and his wilderness campaign in the mid to late 90's.

Thomas, what type of elk hunt?

This season I will be hunting mostly on Block Management Lands for 5 days, around Livingston.

Most of the places have Elk coming through them on a daily basis. I will be in the 7k foot range on some places (all hike in). I have a horse lined up if we need to "tow" one out. My Mule Deer lease place has huge bucks on it.


Next year if I draw I will might do the early season Back Country hunts in Montana. I will also be putting in for New Mexico over the next few years...

The paradise valley holds hundreds of elk. Mostly on private lands that have pivots of alfalfa and hills for refuge. I love that area and have taken a bull near Goose Creek. If you go there around Thanksgiving its fun to watch the circus act in Gardiner.

Just finished the bow hunting season here in Colorado. This was the first year we backpacked in. Usually we would hike in from our car camp setup but it would be 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours at nite, which got old fast. We did a provision run about a month before the season and "hid" stuff in the woods near our camping spot like MRE's, 12 gallons of water, propane tanks, small stove, etc. Luckily it was still there when we went back.

Me too, Craig. Just got back from a week bowhunting in the South San Juan Wilderness. Really beautiful country down there. My gal and I are eating our tags this year. She has an antelope tag for this weekend then I have a muzzleloading antelope tag comes up in a couple weeks. Then we wait til December for late plains deer season for which we both have tags. It really works out well, she's a cow and doe shooter and I get to look for big ones or just take a pass.

I love hunting out west. I can jump a plane after work in NJ and be in Montana that night, and hunting the next morning. It is not difficult to find leases dirt cheap, you just need to plan and make a lot of phone calls.
