1st BIG Mule Deer in CO

What a rush, I've always wanted to bag a decent mule deer! Finally got him during 2nd season. I could have tried to wait for a bigger guy to come along, but he was a solid 5x5 or 10pt. I can't wait to see him mounted on my wall next to my buffalo.

I'm in the Army and it's been 6 years since I've been in the US to be able to hunt (due to deployments). It's an exhilarating experience to be out in the out doors and see the country side and take down a big beast. I love hunting.

Enjoy the pics...

It's great to be home.

Congratulations! That's a wonderful buck.

Glad to hear you are back in the states. Thank you for your time spent in harms way. There are a lot of us here who appreciate the work you do.

What part of Colorado did you hunt in?

Nice Buck and welcome home! Thanks for your service. Good luck on your 4th season hunt. It just occurred to me that opening day of 4th rifle season is Veterans Day. What a way to observe this day, hunting in the great outdoors! Everyone hunting on this day, and everyone else for that matter, ought to stop for minute and say a little prayer of thanks for those that sacrificed to keep this nation free and out of harms way.

Excellent! Thanks for putting it on here, I have third season rifle and I'm getting antsy looking at all these great animals. Glad you made it back to the states to enjoy the season. Hope you get to stay stateside. Thanks for what you do. Thumbs up
