2015 Winter Bow Hunt 3 of 3

In some high places you can see the city. On this day it was freezing and cloudy, but in the city it was warm and sunny.

Morning hunt up high. Halfway through the November most of the snow melted, then blew back in the following week.

On my way back to camp one night I found these fresh cougar tracks in my entrance boot tracks. Kinda spooky.

Another cold day scanning for deer.

I finally spotted this big stud-buck 1000 feet above me. By the time I got close, it had crossed the summit and left. This is the hardest hunt I've ever had!

November 30, last day of the season. Another sad photo of my hunt coming to an end. Better to eat an unused tag than kill a small buck. Already looking forward to next year!

  1. Loved your “white camo”. My buddy Reed uses a white bed sheet, or something like it, that his wife spray painted with a few lines to give it a camo pattern.

    1. Years ago I noticed that deer have a hard time seeing you in the snow when you’re wearing white. I don’t paint stripes on my white clothes because there’s already so much dark-pattern breakup from my bow, binos, face, and pack. This makes snow camo a very simple and effective option.
