Hello my name is Adam I am 41 years old I am looking for a good unit to hunt for mule deer and elk in?
I have been an avid deer and elk hunter in Washington since I was 15 years old. I have enjoyed hunting black tail deer for that time and have killed many, my biggest scored 120 bc points. I have also killed many Roosevelt elk my biggest scored 250points I killed him with a muzzloaded. I make a living as a wood carver, I carve and teach north west coast Indian art. I have also commercial fished in Alaska before I was able to support my wife and 3 kids with my art.
Recently I have started hunting north east washington for mule deer and love it. Mule deer are a lot different to hunt then black tail, it is like you can really hunt them, and I love the open country they sometimes live in. I am so tired of wet soggy brush with no visability.
I am really interested in coming to idaho next fall 2014 in search of some open country where I can get out and walk and hunt all day, yes I would love a huge mule deer but do not excpect one. what unit would be a good break in for me? What unit could I hunt deer and elk at the same time? What unit has lots of public land, and road accesses I could hike off of? Any help would be greatly appreciated? The units I have been looking In to are
Thank you. Adam
