I'm not hunting mule deer this year; however I have been told (and read here on the forum) that higher amounts of rain this year have kept the mule deer in good health in the northwest corner. Plus a relatively mild winter last year did not have a significant mortality rate on the mule deer.
If you are planning to do mule deer hunting this fall and don't have a tag, better jump on that leftover tag app!
Moderator I have my deer tag along with my cow elk tag.
I will hunting with http://www.rockymountainhunting.com/
My wife hunts with me. We have both been very pleased with this outfitter. This is a trespass hunt only. For two consecutive years we have harvested mule deer in the 24” + spread. I can hardly wait for the season to arrive>

One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
