My First Mule Deer
October 2007. muzzleloader season in southern Saskatchewan turned out to be a great weekend. I filled my tag with this Mule deer taken at about 50 yards and only ½ hr of shooting time left before heading home, with a shot that left him dead in his tracks. We took a rough green score of around 165+. He is very clean with not a lot of deductions.
We came across a lot of deer with the majority of the bucks still in their bachelor groups with many of this size and bigger! The trip was an eye full of game with Moose, Antelope, Elk, Whitetail, and of course Mule deer. The upland game birds were plenty as well giving us a break from looking deep into the hills. We stopped for some pheasant and partridge, giving our trip an optimal amount of hunting opportunities.
