    So to recap about a year ago I called my son Jon and told him to put in for a draw hunt because I heard that you could accumulate points for the future, so maybe one day we can go on some hunt out west. So he calls me and tells me that he won a tag to hunt Mule deer in unit 13b. Pretty soon we...

    So after a great night at cowboy camp we went back to tweeds an Jon glassed up six does, we hiked up a ridge to see where they were walking to and a whole new vista opened up. If we could have started here five days before I believe we probably would have scored. We actually started to think we...

    One thing that we learned from more than one guide,spotter,hunter is that getting in a good high spot and glassing early in the morning and late in the evenings is the method used for locating deer. That and up to fifty game cameras per outfitter. So we again started glassing at the place at...

    We drove back in the unit thinking we were going to hunt black rock mtn. We spent a good amount of time scouting maple canyon and liked it a lot. We also made it to black rock and found promising areas. With a four wheel drive truck we had so much more ability to get to where we wanted. We used...

    We had a place in littlefield and stayed there overnight, rested and repacked. There is a nice new hotel just outside of the unit I reccomend that, from there you could be hunting on Seegmiller in an hour and a half.

    Segmiller mtn. was promising and there were hunters and guides about. We especially liked an area behind a corral that seemed to be in the center of several water sources. We left there to go to St. George to get a truck, a guide stopped and asked what we were doing and were we ok? We told him...

    We spent a couple of days hunting segmiller mtn. We found a spot where we could see two water sources and hunted one drinker. Jon thought deer were coming but it turned out to be cows. We did see four does there but no bucks were with them at all.

    We met a guide or a spotter who told us where we could glass from in a car. We tent camped on Segmiller mountain and started hunting and exploring and learning. It soon became evident judging by how many game cameras were at a water source that good water and habitat is vital.

    We had a great time and a great hunt. Jonathan harvested a beautiful 11 point mule deer. My new friend Don who was introduced by brushcreek told me that it is called a 4x4 with eye guards. We owe thanks to backcountry_sassn for his help, he has great firsthand knowledge and really encouraged...
