    CC in pic 7 it looks like a pump gun maybe a 270? Great pics. I really like the ones were there if 5-7 deer lined up. Those must have been the days.

    Found some more pictures The 2 colored ones were in 1953. I was 12 and my Dad was 35. The BW was in 1954 the next year. Compare to the last one from 2005. I was 64 and my dad was 87. His brother (my Uncle) is sitting next to him and is 84. All my cousins too.

    The picture of the Rem pump was a 30-06. I still have it, but don't use it much.

    I finally got my new printer/scanner setup and I love it. The scanner program is great!

    Mabe...maybe not. I've backpacked/hunted all over the middle & eastern part of D7 and anyone with questions can sure ask.

    CC I have never done much more than day trips above timberline and I'm looking for any advice I can get on places that might hold some deer. I'm going to do a shake down run to Mt Givens and check out the basins that drain out to Mono hot springs, but kind of figure I need to go further in to the wilderness. If you could give me some advice on Piute Canyon or French Canyon drainages that might be worth looking at that would be great, or anywere else your advice is more than welcome.

    My experience with scouting in the summer is that it is really food & water dependent. Depending on the winter, the deer can be at very different altitudes. I've seen winters that were really hard & had lots of snow. The deer were really late and really never got very high from their winter grounds. I've seen really dry winters and the deer were never very far from water.

    Walk the ridges that lead to the high basins and look for sign, check the game trails and for sure take your spotter and spend lots of time looking, especially early and late. On warm days, look for them in the shade. Above timberline there is usually lots of scrub and some grassy areas too. Cover & food! I've seem some good bucks laying in the warm sand when it's cold.

    Best advice is look, look some more and take your time. If often ask mysef..."If I was a buck where would I be?" If I can I like to get above the areas I think hold deer and look down. Just like in a tree stand, they don't look up that much.

    I am not familiar with those 2 area you mentioned. I'll check some of my maps I still have.
