Hunt slower.... glass more carefully. The biggest deer I saw all week (probably a B&C caliber buck) I jumped 400 yards from the truck while hiking into my "hunting area". Had I hunted my way carefully from the truck and dissected every nook and cranny with my binoculars I likely would have shot a monster. This happened to me several times.Really enjoyed reading this, sounds like you had a great trip. Congrats on the deer. Now that you have been there anything you would do differently?
The other thing I will do is train even harder next time. I felt great going out there... but altitude is a bitch. I would put myself at about 80% ready. This allowed me to do very well (logged over 56 miles) but I would have liked to been able to recover quicker from the steep climbs and would like to not be quite as fatigued as I was by the end of the week.
