Linda’s 2011 Trout Creek Mule Deer Hunt
I get a great deal of inquiries where to hunt every year and sometime I am just another lead to the hunter along with the rest of the information they get from others. It is good that when it comes to hunting that hunters try to gather as much information as they can, including getting information from the local biologist for the area they plan to hunt. Many biologist are hunters themselves and want to see hunters successful. In Oregon the ODFW have some very good biologist and a couple I have know for many years.
Getting on with Linda’s hunt, she made contact with me early on about getting a Trout Creek Mule Deer tag. Tough unit to draw for, as it takes at least 10 points to get drawn. The Trout Creek Hunt is in the Whitehorse Hunt Unit, bordering Nevada. There are some monster bucks that live in the arrid country, but hard to find.
I gave Linda some waypoints that were given to me by an old hunter that I had known for more than 20 years that hunted the Trout Creek Mountain and harvest many a big monster buck. Bud Lucas was his name and he lived in Klamath Falls, OR. He shared his stories and pictures of the bucks that he harvest of the years.
I was Mule Deer hunting in the Trout Creek Mountains. Got my buck day 2 of the hunt. It was great! I wish I could hunt there every year. I went several days early and put bucks to bed. Found them in the morning. It was good I got my deer early as it began snowing a couple of days later. What a great experience I will never forget. I saved points for 10 years and wanted a tag before I was 50 (next year), now I think I may get another one before I am 60!
Thanks for the interest and encouragement!
