Fair question. The 510 is an absolute minimum. I rarely look at the same place both an evening and morning, and almost never multiple mornings. If I do look at an area in an evening and see 5 bucks, then 20 the next morning, I only count the 20, assuming the 5 may have been the ones the evening before. For certain, the 510 is minimum. It's very important to me to make accurate counts, otherwise there's no point in counting. No doubt I've looked at 510, at least.
Following me up there this year would be a waste. I'd probably turn around and follow you!! Ha ha
I'm shocked that after seeing that number, that none are over 185. I got good video of all but a couple of the biggest bucks, so I can't even BS myself. Even those I didn't get good video of, I can't BS myself, I still got good looks with my eyes.
I was just thinking that in general areas of Utah I'd have better success. Thought I'd see what you guys thought.
Believe me, I've considered the fact that maybe I just suck. But big bucks are bucks, they feed like all others. I've found them before, just not this year. I've never seen one with a tape measure, so I know they don't know how big their antlers are and big ones never eat.
A bit frustrating. Okay, a lot frustrating. 26 days!!! 510 bucks, at least!!!
Could winter have really impacted antler growth? What's the deal is what I can't figure out. i guess I'll know after the hunt. If a bunch of beasts get hammered, then maybe I need to find a new hobby.
