Mule Deer and Whitetail Deer Hunt – Looking Forward to Some British Columbia Weather Next Week.

Dome Creek, BC forecast for next week. 

Sunday: Cloudy with 60 percent chance of showers. Low plus 5. High 10.
 
Monday: Periods of rain. Low plus 3. High plus 3.
 
Tuesday: A mix of sun and cloud. Low minus 3 (Celsius). High minus 1.
 
Wednesday: Cloudy with 60 percent chance of flurries. Low minus 9. High minus 5.

After traveling on Monday, we’ll begin our deer hunt on Tuesday. The forecast sounds like perfect deer-hunting weather. I’ll be packing some cold-weather clothing, but cold is preferred over rain at just above the freezing level. Cold weather might keep the deer out. Hope so.

I’ve been working hard on packing. Trying to take just the right amount of clothing. Extra luggage is expensive, so we’ll work out the best plan for that. I purchased a couple U. S. Army duffel bags today and I’m picking up some soft cooler cases for meat. The huge bags won’t be fun to carry, but they will hold a lot of deer meat. Since we can tag two deer each, we’re hoping to come home well loaded and hopefully with some respectable antlers.

  1. Good luck!

    Beautiful area but I have only been in the summer. Different in the late fall / early winter.

    What kind of soft cooler do you use for the meat? And where do you get it? I have been looking for something.

    • The soft cooler is like a large insulated bag. My wife uses them to transport meat and frozen stuff from the grocery store. This will not insulate as well as a cooler, but once deer meat is cooled down, it will remain cool for some time (because it is quite dense) with a minimum of insulation. As long as the meat stays reasonably cool, it will be fine during the short trip home, which will be about ten hours total.

      I intend to transport the insulated bag, horns and maybe a cape inside the large U.S.Army duffel bag. It will be a bit hard to carry, but the best solution I’ve thought of so far.
