Hunting Whitetails

For the most part are whitetails easier to hunt than blacktails or muleys?

Hunting Whitetails

Depends on when and where you hunt and how much fear of humans the deer have in the area you hunt.I have seen bolth Wt and Md bucks act like retarded sheep during the rut in an area where you couldnt get near them pre-rut.I would say hunting Wt in thick cover is more difficult than hunting Md in open country but some of the hardest deer to hunt I have ever seen are the Wt that live on the open prarie here in MT.There are areas i hunt here where the Md bucks never leave the thick stands of timber on steep hillsides and it makes them almost impossible to locate,nevermind getting a shot at one.

Good helpful information! Big smile I've been told the blacktails can be harder only because of the smaller numbers and thick cover. In WA the blacktails are on the west side of the Cascade Mts. and the Wt and Md are on the east side.
Thank you,
