Anyone hunt Mule Deer?

I backpack into the wilderness and archery hunt for mulies. Mostly, just to get in shape for Chukar season. Didn’t have much time to hunt or scout last year but spent 3 hours within 150 or so yards of this buck.

Looks like a caribou! Whoa.

 

Most deer hunters I know here in Montana blame the poor quality of bucks on the state management by FWP. They say the long season results in too many bucks harvested and not enough living to get old enough to get big.

Where would you say was the best state to kill a nice buck where you could freelance and not be extremely difficult to get a tag. I’m wanting to go and get one buck period.  I want a trophy animal and the mulie is the only thing I have ever wanted to take.

I love hunting mule deer but where I can hunt them is 2500 miles from my house.I have made a few trips there including driving the Chevy on a 5000 mile round trip without pulling the trigger this October. 7 preference points accumulated for Colorado now just trying to find a good place to go and if I want to spend the money with an outfitter.Here are a few pictures of our DIY hunts on private land.Some have been posted previously.

 

My best one,the missing antler was repaired by the taxidermist

Makes me want to go back.Sitting here weathering this nasty cold spell October hunts seem like a good idea.
