I drew the East Whitehorse mule deer tag this year. I am looking for any suggestions for a place to start looking. I live in Western Oregon now, so I won't have much of a chance to scout before the hunt. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
I havent hunted that unit so i cant really be too much help with first hand info. Have you used the new hunting map at the odfw website, i found it very usefull in scouting its almost like google earth but isolates the unit selected. Goole earth is also a great tool to use. good luck with your hunt and congrats on the tag.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
