Blacktail Hunting in the Pacific Northwest with Nathan Endicott
Nate Endicott and I sit down for a chat about blacktail hunting in the Pacific Northwest. He’s also hunted mule deer in Arizona a couple of times. We talk about the rapid changes to hunting in Arizona if you’re out of state, especially when it comes to getting a tag. Even though I advocated for it, it’s not the best system, and it has an impact on my guiding business. We also chat about how things go up north in Oregon, where Nate is.
I hunted in Washington last year during the blacktail rut, and Nate and I talk about late season deer hunting in Oregon. Washington and Oregon are similar, but there’s less opportunity in Washington. You could also get an all season tag every other year, so it all depends. If you’re a non-resident, it’s more expensive. Nate walks through the tag process for deer hunting, and we get into when the peak of the rut is for blacktail.
Nate and I talk about deer behavior on the west coast and how it’s different and similar to the east. In some areas, there’s a lot of private ground, and Nate maps out the geography and where the deer population hangs out. We talk about how to use deer behavior to your benefit, how our experience over the years has made us better hunters, and why hunters need to band together. We wrap up by chatting about Nate’s favorite habitat to score blacktail bucks, the three factors that contribute to his success, and Nate’s favorite blacktail deer hunting story.
