I have done quite a bit of research on this hunt. My buddy and I plan on executing it in either Nov. 2013 or Nov. 2014. We want to hunt low for whitetails making spike camps until we can get up high and try to get on some mulies. And we mean high. We want to get up into some nasty country as we figure the whitetails have probably taken over everywhere else and driven the mulies up into the nastiest terrain available. Correct? We were sad to realize we would have to have the "whitetail tag" and have to hunt in Oct. in order to be able to fill our tags with bears. Our main focus is up high for mule deer, so we can't. Correct? And that is heavy bear country right? But if we can shoot a 130" whitetail or bigger, we will take it. Probably more like 145" standard for mule deer. Is that realistic? We may or may not have horses, I'll have to talk to my buddy about that. Any info even remotely helping us out is greatly appreciated.
