THE MOUNTAINS DON’T ALWAYS HAVE THE BEST HUNTING – In truth, the foothills generally hold better mule deer habitat than the high country. One year my older brother and I hunted Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains. We started high, but saw few bucks. We then dropped to a block of public land in the foothills where I spied over a dozen in a single day. None met my standards for that particular hunt, but several were fine animals with classic racks sporting four points per side. Find a lightly pressured parcel of good habitat in the foothills and you’ve written yourself a lifetime ticket to the gravy train.
