2020 MT mule deer.
« on: February 23, 2020, 03:50:02 AM »
Last year was my first time hunting Mule deer in MT. I went solo and missed a few good bucks and passed up a descent one on day 2. I ended up bringing home 2 very nice does.. Iím definitely going to try my luck again in the draw this year. Who else is headed out to MT for some Mule deer action?
   Iíll definitely be practicing my rifle shooting out to 300 yrds a crap-ton this year!!

I will be... if Iím drawn. Iíd rather spend more time filling an elk tag and stumble into a buck. Just not sure of where. I saw more mule deer than white tails where I was at. Everyone I knew out there shot muleys

 Hopefully. We got lucky three years in a row and then we struck out and did not get to go last year. Weíve brought our bucks home every year and most shots of been between three and 500 yards. Although we have had a couple close ones where they jumped out of the draw and was only a 50 yard shot.

Throw some pictures out there for us........Im also thinking about it but after seeing this post and looking at their last mule deer harvest report, it leaves me kinda cold........

Moved back from Montana unfortunately but here is my buck from last year. The red X is the knob I shot him from 368 yards away, he reared onto his back legs at the shot and then dropped in is tracks.

Haven't been back there for a few years but if I don't smoke these points this year I'll lose them so I'm diving back in. Gonna hit it for for a few weekends in between other hunts and see how some of my old haunts are doing. Ill get my daughter a tag as well and see if we can't get her her first muley buck. My last MT buck from a run and gun trip over thanksgiving with my nephew Hunter and my dad. It was -20 that afternoon and my camera wouldnt work so no field photos. By the time I got back to my dad and the truck that whole 80lb bag of neat in my pack was frozen solid :chuckle:
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

This is great! I'd love to hunt Montana. I have a few cousins over there that I don't see much. Hope to talk to them at the family reunion about deer hunting.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!
