We did not hunt as long as we planned… nor found the bucks we were after but we did alright.

I got a solid 3x3 opening morning and my buddy got one Sunday afternoon in the rain/storm. His has the thickest bases I’ve ever put my hands on. Think I was a regressive old buck.

Well done guys!! Crazy bases on that guy- looks like thick base pics I see coming out of a specific WA- always cool to see generational antler size coming out of the same general region of the different B’s.

I sure hope those mass burns really allow herds to grow and the lack of cover keeps the cougars pushed into more dense forests- which would be bad for the northern areas that didn’t get burnt down.

The 2020 fire is probably the best thing to happen to the deer. I’ve seen more and bigger bucks in the last two years than ever before. I’m talking bucks in the upper 160s low 170s. I’ve got photos and vids to prove it but I keep that for myself. The deer are super fat and healthy, antler growth this year was ridiculous.
