Just went out for the Muzzleloader this morning in the Chalk Creek area. LOTS and LOTS of little bucks. Spikes and little 2 points everywhere, but still waiting for a big fella. With the numbers of small bucks, it looks to be a good hunt in a couple years......
Just wondering what others are seeing. I realize most of you are out for the whole weekend, so post your results and stories when you get back.

I had the same experience lots of little guys and only 3 or 4 worth shooting, they were too far away. It was still good to see all of those bucks.

I decided to use my dedicated hunter advantages and I went out yesterday. We started hiking at 4 am and didn't stop hiking til 9 pm. We saw lots and lots of little and some what decent bucks, But I am going to be picky and it has to be over 26 wide for me to pull the trigger. I did bump a few deer in the trees but since my dumb a$$ left the binos at home I couldn't do anything but watch them run through the trees. I did take the spotter but sure could have used the bino's. All in all we had alot of fun and I look forward to going back out next week.

I saw some really, really nice deer. Also, the buck to doe ratio was very high. Now, if we could only get the overall numbers of the herd up.

my holes are empty!
i had a trail cam up for 6 days, only a doe, i hiked the same places that have always produced good to great bucks, the years past i would see over a 100 head a day with at least 30 bucks, i hunted my [email protected]@ off from wend 5 am to this morning at 11. i broke camp in the snow disgusted. 4 days of hard dark to dark hunting i'll bet i saw less than 20 deer, and 4 little bucks still with momma,
i even broke down and road hunted last night and this morning! nothing
i did however see about 1000 elk, and a couple real nice bulls.

i'm hitting some old spots in the morning, and maybe looking for some new ones. :roll:

i saw two shooters and put good stalks on them each one was with in 60 yards when another hunter came over the ridge and spooked them both. there were a few little guys running around with mamma as well. overall the hunt was far better than last year but worse than three years ago.

one positive thing was i was into huge bulls all week the bad thing is that i can't draw a tag for one of them to save my soul.

overall i had a great muzzy hunt and will be looking forward to the rifle hunt coming up this month as well.
