"Wyoming High Country"

Thread Views Counter....

Let me just say...I have enjoyed seeing everyone else post there pictures and video, so I figured it was time for me to share mine.
This year, I've pretty much put all my eggs in one basket. I am completely focused on trying to find a nice muley in the high country of Wyoming. I made my first trip up at the end of June. This was mostly to see what the mountains were looking like. Seemed to me like the snow was gone early and the grass was already getting deep. Did get a chance to take my youngest and get a little fishing done.

My scouting really started the first week in July. I made a quick overnight trip and got an evening sit and a short morning hike in before I had to head back for family obligations. During that trip I saw about 25 bucks and 10 bull elk. Unfortunately, I bumped the largest buck on my walk in and didn't get video. I did get a good look at him and figured he was about 28" wide with nice eye guards and backs, but he was pretty thin in the front. A nice buck, but I'm still looking for "Brutus." Here's a video of a couple of the deer and elk I was able to get video of.

I am headed back in about a week for a longer trip. Hopefully, I will have "Brutus" on the next video update. Good luck with all your hunts.

Made another short scouting trip to the high country. It's a beautiful time to be up there. I did find a buck that I will be chasing this fall. Unfortunately, he was a long ways away and it was late in the morning so the heat waves were causing me some issues with videoing. I did include him in the video, but hopefully I will get a chance to get better video at some point. He is an 8x5 (including eye guards). He has a very open front end which makes it a little difficult to judge his width, but I think he is at least 28", good fronts, a little weak in the back but makes up for it with his extras. He is the first buck in the video. Also found a couple of interesting typicals. The second buck in the video I think is about 26" and really pretty. I would probably take him too, if given an opportunity. Hope you enjoy the video.

Made it back on what will probably be my last scouting trip. Can't wait for the archery opener. I was able to see the 5x8 again and he was very impressive but I couldn't get photos or video. Did see a nice typical that I will be chasing also. The pictures didn't turn out as well as I was hoping, but here he is. I'm not actually sure how big he is, but he is big enough for me.
