I have just returned from 2 great days of deer hunting in SW Montana. This year I headed south with 4 tags in my pocket. As you have guessed from the title I tagged out. :P I won't bore you with the details but there are a couple of things about this hunt that made me really happy. The first is that my 4 deer were shot right around 100 yards on 4 differnet stalks. I like to sneak in as close as possible. Seems to make it more of a hunt for me especially when you are out in the open. The second thing was I only shot 4 times. Not being detected gives a guy lots of time to setup and wait for the perfect shot. The last one is kinda hard to explain but I'll give it a try. I had shot the 3 does the first day. The second day I hunted for a buck and by the end of the day I had passed on 5 or 6. I went out to a draw that can be really good or really bad. The wind was blowing but I was working my way into it. This draw has another that runs into it near the bottom. When I was almost to the point where the 2 meet the wind hit me and on it was the unmistakable smell of mulies. My nose rarely lets me down so I prepared my self and crept to the high point between the 2 draws. Sure enough there 5 or 6 deer in it. 2 of which where bucks. I passed on a 3 point and took this forky, who was just a little bigger, both in body and antler size. All in all a great time.
