What part of Tripp co. are you hunting? I have hunted in Tripp b4 and had good luck. Mostly private land though. Some landowners are good about letting you on while others are not especially if you are looking for horns. Lots of flat land with some shelterbelts and sloughs scattered througout the county. Deer are chased pretty hard from what I remember. Tripp is mainly a pheasant hunters destination with lots of pay hunting, but lots of deer are there. Start knocking on doors and see if you can get any permission. This is my best advice for you. I did know of a rancher by Clearfield but I dont think he is there anymore. He let me hunt does but no bucks. I cant remember his name though, so sorry.

Thanks a lot for the feedback. In that case I'll take my shotgun and spotingscope. Do deer grow pretty big?
