I love to hunt mule deer!
Mule deer hunting can be one of the toughest, most rewarding things you ever do. I’ve seen mule deer belly crawl past hunters 20 yards away on a sagebrush hillside, or slowly lay their head on its side as someone walks by a few yards away with no clue that they are there. You have to work for a big buck, but sometimes you get the opportunity to take one.
I was raised hunting mule deer in Idaho, following a family tradition going back generations. I started out brushing quakie patches, buck brush and pretty much anywhere else my dad thought mule deer could hide since I was about eight years old. Dad always made it sound like a really good deal, though.
