Garett Jacoby - First Buck
My brother Alec and I drew out rifle mule deer tags this year, and just two weeks before rifle season I really wanted to see what kind of deer, are in Utah's Pine Valley unit, so I checked the regulation to see if I, can put out cameras and salt blocks, it didn't have rules against it so we, borrowed three cameras and got three salt blocks and chose three good spots to, put them. In one night one of the salts was an instant hit, we had spikes many, two points and a couple three points but the next night we had two nice four, points and a three by four so we decided to hunt there. Opening morning we went, to the salt but there were hunters everywhere and shots were going off everywhere, so my dad turned to me and my brother Alec and said we are going up and pointed, at the top of the mountain and I was excited because the year before me and my, dad went up there and saw a nice deer but weren't able to harvest it, my, brother had never been up there but we were excited. We saw a spike and a, couple doe's so we kept going up tell we were at the top and my dad told me to, go to the ridge to the left so I did, him and my brother went to the ridge to, the right and sat there for a minute.
It took us two trips to get, the all the meat up and another trip to get the hide and heads and when we, finished our third trip up Melvin Bartz and his friend had just gotten there, with two horses. We put all the meat on the horses and my dad carried my deer, head and hide and Alec carried his deer head and I carried the two guns and, most of our gear in my pack. We had finally started down the mountain when rain, clouds were growing bigger and bigger and I knew we were going to get poured, on, when it started raining it only took 20 minutes to have at least an inch of, water flowing down the trail. It took almost an hour and a half to get to the, bottom of the mountain and at that time we found my brothers that we're, supposed to bring horses up but had gotten lost and were wondering the mountain, side. We made it back to the vehicles when the rain had stopped and we were all, safe and started home, we got home at around ten o'clock and we capped out the, heads and barely were able to fit the meat, the hide from just my deer, and the, two skulls into our chest freezer. We all went into our house too excited to, sleep. I'm so thankful for this hunting experience and grateful I could spend, this once in a life time opportunity with my brother and dad and I can't wait, for next year’s hunt.
