I used to hunt up in WI when I was growing up and the biggest I ever shot in that area was a 12 pointer. There are some huge bucks up there if you have the patience to wait for them to come in range.
Any idea of what part of Three Lakes they were hunting?
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
