A few years back there was a post about the years mule deer harvests and it was fun to look at them. I am from ND and it takes on average 4-6 years to draw a resident mule deer tag. Well I got lucky and drew on year 3. I hunted the last week hoping the rut would be on and it was, lots of nice deer were passed on the first day out there. I have taken some nice heavy racked Mulie but have yet to connect on a nice wide one. When this one presented its self I just couldn't pass him up. He ended up at 30 3/8" inside and has a neat 4" sticker on the left antler. He wouldn't score up very well, but that isn't all that important to me.
Not a great photo, but when you hunt alone they always get to be of just the deer!
