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>

Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
