    This years unit 8 buck

    My dad and mom came over from NM to hunt with me again this year and I brought my younger (9) daughter along for the weekend. We weren't seeing anything at all in the areas that I have seen a good numbers in past years. All the deer we saw taken in camps were small spikes and 1 4 point. On sunday I had to take my girl back so she could go to school and missed the evening hunt. Next day we headed down to Pine Flats. Talked to a young guy that had killed one of the best that we had seen, boy was he happy about it too. It was great to see a guy that happy since we were a getting a little discouraged. We headed a little more south and hiked into some thicker stuff still in the pines. About 100 yards from the truck this buck jumps up and runs in front of us broadside. He was about 40 yards or so and I took my shot. I fired another as he ran and then he disappeared from sight. My dad was to my left where the buck had come from and he went towards where the buck was when I shot. I headed to the right thinking I might be able to see him again. I get about 15 yards and my says " he's here!" . I can't see him and again my dad says he's here, he's down. I never had a lot of confidence in my own fast off hand shooting but this sure helps me feel better about it. I say the first shot got him and dad says he hunched up a little when I fired the second, guess it doesn't matter to the deer. I have loved this unit for years but it sure seems over hunted these days. Side by sides are everywhere and the number of tags seems high. Anyway here is my buck. He will get a full skull euro mount.

    Has Anyone Got a Call to Update Cards????

    Anybody ever fudge a card number or get a new card on purpose just to get called?

    Finally got lucky

    If you get the 8 tag be sure and look down low in the Cedars near Drake road and a little north of there. It's thick but they get down there and hang out since there's plenty of water.

    unit 10

    Boquias or red lands for big bulls. Mine last year was 332"fish and the camp next to us filled three of four tags by Sunday morning with none under 310". Never saw any deer at all. Saw deer in 8 just south of 40 a lot so they should be north of 8 too.

    That's funny, I have a 300RUM myself. She has shot the 22 and enjoyed it along with her sister. I have to make more time to get her out and start studying for the hunters safety course. I figure I'll work her up to shooting the AR and AK and if she gets comfy with those and still says she wants to hunt I'll get her a 243 or a 270. She really likes the idea of a bow which is something I never got into but have thinking I may so I can hunt deer close to home.

    Card hit!

    I was wondering who had paid for my tag! That's might christian of you.
  12. Didn't the elk card hits take over a week? Why is it that deer would take 3-4 days? No hit for me either but we'll see.

    Congrats! I too have two girls who are 10 & 8 and they both say they want to hunt with me. I took my 10 year old with on my elk hunt last year and to my surprise she was right next to my elk and the three in the next camp when we got them up in the tree. She was curious to watch the skinning and quartering. I gave her some disposable cameras and she took lots of pic of hanging elk. I may put her in next year if I can get her to start squeezing the trigger but this may be hard to do since she hates loud noises.

    Still hope cc issues

    Congrats, I seem to be in for tag soup. At least I can put my 10 year old daughter in for deer.

    Still hope cc issues

    I don't know but I kinda figure they already hit the cap which takes us out of the pool. I have loyalty points too so how does that help with a non resident on the ap?

    Still hope cc issues

    I just got off the phone with GFD and the lady I spoke with said they are NOT finished yet. She would not tell me anything about my status about the draw. Fingers crossed but with my dad as a non resident being the primary I don't know what to think.

    Rain for the next 3 days

    Don't forget they go lay in the tall grass in Mormon lake. Walk out there and you just may kick something up. See it a lot up there. I have a tag in 10 for early rifle and sure hope they get more rain up there cause it was dry last week when I was there.
