Thanks Hiker

Actually, Im in canada and I am hunting in central Saskatchewan. It is farmland with lots of pasture. I was told to hunt in a pea field by cover and I would tag out-is this true???

Any tips?

I would hunt the transition areas from bedding to feeding, in the morning and evening. Muleys love to bed in broken country, up high in draws. If you can get up high and glass, you might be able to catch them bedded and then stalk them. If your season is during the rut. Find the does and you'll find the bucks. If it isn't, bigger bucks will usually be solo or in small bachler groups.
Have a great hunt.

I've never hunting them in that type of country before. Do you have any trees, thickets?

They are more then likely bedding in those areas. I would find their paths between the food source and bedding area and set up a stand or a blind. Set the stand or blind in a area where the wind will blow in your face and away from the area they are moving through. If the wind changes from day to day, I'd set up 2-3 blinds or stands to cover their route to and from bedding and feeding, so you'll always have a good stand or blind to hunt when the wind changes. I hope that helps.
