I would put 100% of my time and energy into killing a 200"+ mule deer.  If I had some spare days I'd go find a whitetail.  After that I'd spend my remaining days gazing upon my mule deer.  Blacktails don't interest me in the slightest.  Sorry blacktail guys :chuckle:

I would do exactly this...

Crazy man.   :chuckle:
I wouldn't even be will to spend $40 on a tank of gas to get over there for a weekend :chuckle:

Wouldn't you go for the mule deer tag rather than the three specie tag if all you want to hunt is MD?  :dunno:

Odds of the raffle are with the buyer of the three deer option versus mule deer.

But that probably just got messed up!  :chuckle:

This ones about the 3.

Donít make me report your post!  :IBCOOL:

i'd do a swap hunt with a blacktailer for a whitetail on my place.  for a whitetail i'd make coffee and open the curtains and watch for him.  might do the same with a muley but i think i might get more aggressive and go look for a biggun.

Instead of size I would try and harvest 3 bucks in a very small geographic area. I think I could do it in a 10 mile radius for all three species.

 I'd hunt the beautiful blacktail until I found the right one. Then I'd rattle the tasty whitetail. Lastly I'd hunt the ugly mule deer, make sausage out of the meat and give it away.  :chuckle:

All that is not holy, all that is not true
Crown Him as your Captain, in temptations hour
Let His will enthrall you, in it's light and power

I'd hunt mule deer for 4 months and burn the other 2 tags.
