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.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
