Agreed! That hunt has me pumped for summer when I can finally reach the high country! The worst part about being almost 130% snowpack is that its gonna be a LOOONG time til I can get up there, oh well, to Google Earth I go!

Yes, it was really good. I watched it twice and both times my wife cringed when he was standing close to that cliff edge glassing those bucks.

Loved the episode. Wish it could have been a 1 hour special or something. Is there an extended version available on DVD? I will pick it up at the Salt Lake ISE if there is.

Elkoholic307, that is exactly what I thought, that is some steep country. I was having a hard time breathing just thinking about the elevation, and steepness. Great episode!

I am just getting to the last chapter of his book I bought last week, what an excellent resource. The way he breaks down what he looks for in hunting areas and tactics so thoroughly is great. I've read alot of hunting books, but I don't think I learned this much from any of them. I may pack it along on my next hunt so when I start scratching my head after dark I can "ask the expert". Thanks for a great resource David.

I Tivo'd that episode and just watched it tonight. That is one of the best episode's of any hunting show that I have ever seen. Absolutely phenomenal.

I'm assuming that was public land right? Was it a draw or OTC? I don't need a unit number, just curious about the general circumstances that he was hunting. Definitely has got me excited about doing a hunt like that and now I'll have to buy his book!!!

Buy his book. I've read it a few times and it gets better each time. The unit is a draw unit on public land. Been down there and it is nasty, rugged country and very beautiful.

Yep, the book is an awesome resource. Dave is not just a great hunter but an absolute authority on the animal (mule deer) he hunts.

That unit is not OTC. It is a draw, and 100% public land. Great country, but not for the faint of heart.

i enjoy all of their high country archery mule deer hunts. it seems like eastman's is the only crew that can pull it off. another good book is mike eastman's "hunting high country mule deer". i made the mistake of buying it a few years ago, and i can't resist the urge to pursue those guys. i lived in TX for a few years as a kid, and watched my dad shoot a mulie, but a completely different kind of hunt (and animal) than the mountain version. i can't give up the elk every year, so next year i will go for elk and mulies in WY, maybe speed goats, too.

I'll give you a hint.....central Colorado. A unit that can be drawn every year with wilderness area in it.....

well i figured it was a 0pp unit since he was there the year before. and central colorado? east or west of the divide? north or south of seventy? i may wanna change my hunt code before i send my app in! does any one have the mr. fox's number so i can figure it out?

Really enjoyed this mule deer hunt. I can say this one will stay on the TEVO and watched over and over until the season starts.

Feel the burning of the lungs now!

Just received my latest EBJ and was sad to read that David Long will no longer be with Eastman. Was excited that he will be writing another book though!

What He's leaving Eastman's?! Man I really have enjoyed David Long, that is exciting to hear he's writing another book, but man that's a bummer, oh well I wish him all the luck and am confident Eastman's will bring in yet another hardcore DIY'er!

That is too bad that he's leaving Eastmans after what seems a way too short time frame. I have really enjoyed his obsession and insight on hunting mule deer. I also enjoyed his down to earth nature. He will be missed. However, I wish him all the best with his future endeavors and I look forward to reading his new book. With that said, I hope someone like Nate can step into the editor position and keep moving forward the solid Eastman tradition.

It is too bad he is leaving, and I too wish him the best of luck. Really looking forward to the new book and video though. I agree, my vote is for a guy like Nate Simmons to take over as the editor. He is the real deal and gets it done year after year.

It seems Eastmans is so good that it is becoming a launching pad for other personal careers. I know that whoever Eastmans chooses as a successor will be of the same caliber person!

I thought David would be one to stick around for awhile. I wish him luck. And I agree with Jerry, Eastmans has become a launching pad and that speaks volumes for Eastmans.

Throw in another vote for Nate, he has a no quit, gonna get it done, hardcore DIY attitude. The Eastman Way!
