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.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
