Paul Shellgren, WY Mule Deer Hunt Report
I was very impressed with the number of mule deer we were seeing. It was my first time mule deer hunting and was ready to take the first nice buck that I saw. However, my guide said to hold off and it was on the afternoon of the 3rd day of a 4 day hunt that he finally gave his approval to take the buck. It was in the birch trees with snow on the ground but less than a 100 yards It was a one shot kill to the neck. When admiring the buck a grouse walked down and jumped on a log 10 feet away and starting to drum. It seemed like it knew the deer’s spirit had departed! Also, saw a lot of elk, a Shiras moose, and a badger, heard elk bugling and coyotes howling.
