Thanks for the comments, I plan on giving archey tackle a try this year, I haven't commited to that before for Mule deer. I am one more year away from the rifle tag I want. Archery is OTC for muleys in most areas of Oregon too. I haven't put the effort into it due to the fact that the time of year that I bow hunt elk. But I have come to the conclusion that I need to focus on the Muley hunting if I want to get it done. If a few more years go by without success, I may have to broaden my horizons. MT could very well be in my future!
