Hunting mulies

Hey Hiker,
I've never hunted mulies ( none around here), how do their patterns compare to the whitetail?

Hunting mulies

Redrider,
Muleys are hard to pattern, unlike WT's and will stay in a certain area for a few days or weeks and then move on, sometimes they come back and other times they don't for a long time. The best time to hunt Muley bucks is during the rut. Bucks will travel along ways looking for receptive does. When the rut is hot, I like to get up high, where I can see a lot of country and glass. If you're patient and willing to stay at it, big bucks can be seen. Once spotted, you can try to stalk them. It works really well if you have a partner to keep their eye on the buck, while the other hunter stalks. You can communicate through hand signals, as to where he should go to get closer. Most of the time, muleys are in rough, broken country and you have to get into draws to stay out of their sight, so the partner really can help. One of my friends who live in KS, kills some big muleys in western KS.
Now in pappenz case, I am green and haven't hunted them in that kind of flat country. You might be able to pattern them.
