Just back from another year in Murderers Creek Unit of Eastern Oregon. We have a hunting cabin there.
Weather was odd. Drove over Friday, sunny and warm. Snowed Saturday and Sunday. White Tacoma hard to see in snow? Camo? Must have worked. First three bucks in camp were from my truck. (all small Forks).
Next buck could have come from me, but I passed on it as I felt it was too small. (another fork). My brother in law bagged it while we watched!
All in all, we got 7 in camp, 4 from my rig, I did not bag one this year, but passed on 5 of them, all spikes and forks. My step brother bagged a fork from 459 yards with a head shot from his .338 with hand loads.
We have 11 total tags, and several left to fill. Season runs through the 14th. Best of luck to my camp mates!
Tacoma was AWESOME up in the hills. I was hoping for some mud to offset the Super White. I got some road mud, (pics soon), but nothing great as far as wheeling. It was dry, frozen, then dry again.
Hoping you all had the same luck this year.
