    35B October hunt

    If you’re seeing does and not bucks you need to look in the same type of country but get further off the road. Bucks that live by the road have a short shelf life. Most people think bucks are smarter then does but it’s more that they just get killed when they live by the road and they don’t when they live a ways off the road.

    When I saw this I thought it was SEEKER not SHOOTER. I left disappointed in the coherence of your post.

    Good Luck Pronghorn Hunters!

    Between your buffalo, that antelope, and hopefully a muley this year you’ve killed some seriously big sh1t the last few years.

    Pinpointing downed animal

    I empty the rest of my ammo into a nearby tree and try to blow all the bark and foliage off and better yet start a small fire with the sparks. Then when you get over to the area you can reference where you shot from by the big shiny pile of brass.

    Top units

    I’ve read the hype about 3c. Spent very little time in there except fishing and shed hunting, but I honestly can’t say I’ve ever seen a pic of a big big one that came out of there? Like 200 plus? I’ve looked at the guides websites up there and they claim it as a 180-200 hunt but honestly of the dozens and dozens of bucks I see on there pics very few break 170 and most are 150-160 bucks. Fine bucks of course, but curious if I’m missing something. You can shoot a buck like that every year in MT, WY or CO. Curious why someone would burn a dozen points on it?

    Ever regret passing on a shot?

    I had an 87” antelope patterned on water. Blind set at 25 yards. The two bucks he’d been with all summer watered just after first light. He came over the hill about an hour later. Skirted my blind and bedded at 83 yards. I had an 80 yard pin that I was confident in, but had about a 10mph crosswind. Decided there’s no way he’d bed that close if he suspected anything and figured he’d get up and water later that am. He layed there for 3 hours, then got up and walked out of my life. Rained 3” that night. Ended up killing another good buck but will probably never have a chance at a buck like that again.

    Out of state hunters

    It’s not considered “stretching” data when there is no data to stretch. Essentially we start finding CWD when we start looking for it. States will ramp up their surveillance for it and all the sudden they find it and claim it “spread”. I 100% promise you that my home state of ND would still be CWD free if they went back to 2010 (or rather had maintained) surveillance methods, which was essentially not looking for it at all short of mandatory testing of all dead captive elk and deer. (Hence why they always “find” it in captive herds first). Follow the “wrath” of CWD and you’ll find the good ol days of deer hunting anywhere it’s been “found”.

    Out of state hunters

    CWD is already in AZ. It’s in every state and has been for centuries. They just haven’t looked hard enough for it. Game and fish found the third deer in ND with it back in February. About 1/2 mile from my house. Came in and shot 52 deer off the wintering ground. (Essentially the only deer in the area). Of course none of them had CWD. Completely wiped out the deer on my place for this year. I had several 5-7 yr old bucks coming up this year too. The game and fish is their own worst enemy when it comes to CWD. 25 years ago it hit the covers of magazines as the “end of deer hunting as we know it”. Short of the game and fish killing off entire counties it has had ZERO impact. Colorado went through the best years of mule deer they’ve had in a generation right in the peak of the CWD scare there. Wisconsin and Michigan have had some of the best deer hunting in modern times (due to QDM) right in the middle of CWD’s alleged wrath. As JayZ would say “we got 99 problems but CWD ain’t one”

    If you bring your deer or elk back the way most people do, boned meat, cape and a clean skull plate it doesn’t affect you in any way. Has nothing to do with antelope or bears. They’ve been doing this for years in almost all states east of AZ.
