Gary and me in Idaho
This was my first big trip to hunt. I'd always wanted to go on a guided horsback hunt and that's just what we did. There were five hunters total in camp, three for mule deer and two for both elk and mule deer. No elk taken and only three deer. We hunted hard, very hard. Some mornings we rode out at 6 AM in the pitch dark and then returned as late as 9 PM, again in the pitch dark. I cannot say I disliked any of it, except the semi lack of game. We did have some "camp deer" around and they should be visible in one of the pictures taken right outside our tent. We could see about 20-25 miles across the mountains from our camp. We were at 8,000'.
