It's not about the kill, anymore
I live in Montana and the hunting opportunities are plenty. I used to travel all over the state trying to fill my tags. As I got older I changed.
Now I find a good buck and target that animal. This will be the third year trying to kill my monster whitetail. Last year I came close. Last year I did not fill my "A" tag or either sex tag. I did not feel bad. I tricked this buck at least 8 times during the season, archery and rifle. It is the last 50 yards that are important.
I do like venison. This year that buck will be on my wall. Hopefully I will show you some pictures. Does anyone else target a single animal or group of animals using the same area?
Oh, I do like elk the best. The wolves are changing the way to hunt them and I am behind the learning curve. They will get my attention too. My latest tactic is wait until they get pressured and go to their hiding spot. It is two hours uphill on some very rugged terrain. I need a mule. SRM
