Looking forward to my first

Looking forward to my first (and maybe last) mule deer hunt this fall, that one would be a great trophy in my book.

    Sorry but thats no

    Sorry but thats no monster buck for Utah, he's barely out to his ears. He looks more like a last day buck if he is standing close to the road.

 Hang in there im sure you can do better, set a goal for your self.

  I am not passing on this

 

I am not passing on this very nice buck... because I have yet to enjoy tagging a muley buck.  Now afterwards... I would probably allow my hunting partner to take another that size while I look for something bigger!  But here too if it is the last day I am taking meat home as I am back to having 6 mouths to feed in the house.

Foe me it would just depend

Foe me it would just depend on the area and if it was close to the end of the hunt. If I was hunting a "trophy" unit I'd hold out but in a general area it would be down in a heartbeat. Like Exbio said if your just in it for the meat it's a heck of a lot cheaper to just go buy meat fro the store and if you don't like beef than in most places you can buy game meat from some game farms. I'm neither a trophy hunter or a meat hunter I'm just a hunter. I set goals at the beginning of the season as to what I'm looking for or want then also have a plan b,c,d,e,f. Also looking at the deer, it brings up the old saying, " if it's good enough to shoot on the last day then it's good enough opening morning".
