I recently watched this Eastman video. Some great footage on there. there is a Diy hunt in Colorado on there about two thirds of the way through. Anybody know what Wilderness area its in? Pretty country.
If it is the one that I am thinking of it is in unit 35 on private property. I have seen some of the largest mule deer that I have seen up there during the late elk hunts or while just up looking at them.
Unit 35 has a couple of wilderness study areas. Bull Gulch and Castle Peak. That area had a horrible winter kill a few years back. It might be a few more years before many mature bucks will be around. DOW needs to really cut back the number of buck tags in there, Eagle County genetics is some of the best in the state.
I've spent countless hours either on my hands and knees or bent over, messing up my back, looking for blood. One such instance I remember most was a hog hunt a few years ago in Mississippi. I had never shot a hog so when I poked a hole in this guy; I was determined to find him. Wearing snake leggings, I crawled on my hands and knees through the briars and the brambles and bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go. I found a spot of blood here and there but never the pig. And lucky for me, I didn't find...
