I'm new to the forum but not big game. I grew up in Northern California but my parents hunted Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, or Montana every year from the time I was born until I left for college and they took me along every year so I got to experience a lot of country. That built my love for the mountains and mule deer and eventually led to me settling down in 1 of the best mule deer areas left in the US. I've been doing the backcountry thing for 4 years now and have learned a ton about big buck behavior and what it takes to get opportunities at these ghosts. My first scout trip of the summer is coming up in a few weeks and there may be a post if I find something cool. In the meantime it's finalizing a new load workup in the .270 Sherman and continuing pack training. Good luck to everyone this year!
