Out of state hunting is one of our favorite things to do, especially in the beautiful mountains of the West. This season we were both lucky enough to draw rifle tags in the same unit and found out snow was in the forecast during our hunt. When it snows, the bucks will be pushed out of the high country and might start rutting. ANYTHING can happen when the bucks start to rut and leave the cover of the thick trees. The cold weather and snow hit during our hunt and the bucks went crazy! We knew it was only a matter of time before a couple of mature bucks would show themselves. We hunted hard for 9 days and managed to come home with 2 big bucks! We were able to capture all of the action on film and will be sharing it with you in a two part series. Be sure to catch Skyler’s hunt coming soon!
