Gads! ... well, you have now seen what a lot of people haven't ... some of our new wolves. There might be a relationship between gettting into wolves and NOT getting into deer. I think when wolves move through or into an area - everything else clears out - or gets eaten.
That being said - I still think I may put in for a controlled mule deer hunt next year - Grangeville area.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
