    Nice thing about hunting the mountains

    I’ve tried eating them various ways...never has been good enough to be worth the effort. We come across them regularly and usually only kill them if they’re around buildings or our deer stands. This one was about 5 feet, which is probably average size down here.

    My Dream Hunts List

    I bought a landowner voucher for a Gunnison Basin unit in 2015 because I was seeing a lot of big bucks and in those units you never know when the next terrible winter is coming. I killed a 190” buck. The timing was right and in that situation I would do it again. As luck would have it...

    Muzzleloader advice for Wife

    2016 Mulie finally back from Taxi

    I finally got my 2016 Mule Deer back from the taxidermist! Not the taxidermist?s fault, I drug my feet in how I wanted him mounted. I made the pedestal myself; I found the dead head on the pedestal the morning I killed him.

    Mule Deer Success Thread!

    I killed this buck last Friday during Colorado's second rifle season. I jumped him up on opening day pretty high on the mountain, about 11,300. I didn't shoot because I saw he had a very short G4 on the left side, I stared a little to long through the binoculars before I realized he was a stud...
