Backcountry Scouting Trip

After my Bowhunting Procrastination post, I decided to get out an do some hiking. I went up into the Backcountry of Utah Uinta National Forest with a buddy of mine. We decided to go to my usual hunting spot to see if there is anything up there worth going after. In years past there was always some nice bucks (The spot is were my buddy Mike took his nice buck). We went up there last year and did not see the nice bucks we were use to seeing and felt it was a waste of time. We decided to head up before the bow hunt to determine if it was an area we would like to hunt. We ended up seeing a total of 9 bucks, and a couple of them were decent four points. I know where I am going for the opening of the bow hunt.
