I took this non-typical buck with a 36" outside spread on our place near Augusta Mt in Nov. 2004,My uncle took his buck about 45min. later on the same ridge.I saw some bigger bucks that day but none as unique as this one!
Awesome bucks. I too have some big bucks on the wall and would love to get something big and unique.
Just curious....was this a general tag? Draw tag? Private or public land? Mule deer seem to be on the decline, especially the big bucks. Would love to hear of people getting these class of deer on public land with a general tag but you just don't see it anymore.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
