All my research and video watching was pointing me towards southern Oregon to complete my NA Deer Slam with a Columbia blacktail. Flying 3000 miles into the mountains after these ghosts was going to be exciting but the odds weren't in my favor. With a 29% success rate I was thinking this was going to be an educational trip and a return hunt would be needed if not several. After I made a post in reference to this hunt I was hooked up with a great group of Oregon hunters that know these critters. Their camp was opened up to my brother and me and we were treated like family. Two nice bucks on the meat pole when we pulled into camp certainly put a smile on my face. After 3 days of hunting cat trails and still hunting I connected on a mature 8pt or 3x3 with eye guards for you western hunters. This buck was right on a doe and gave me an easy 150 yard shot. He completes my deer slam and is my 13th animal towards my Super Slam. Don't know how far I'll go into the Super Slam on LE pay but it will be one hell of a ride. I certainly owe my success to this great group of guys from the Rain Forest and I hope to have them hunt whitetails on my home turf one day. GOD bless & good huntin'
