    Small square bales? And $11 to $15? If so that is not bad. People pay that in Arizona and parts of Nevada.

    Mule deer rut tactics for archery

    The best thing to do would be to get close to a deer and shoot it. I have hunted late Nov and early Dec archery and I usually have 40 mph winds or crunchy snow that the deer can hear me walking on a mile away. I have never had any luck with it. Good luck.

    Horse bit?

    I have had a couple of horses and am fairly competent at riding. She is 8 and was used to ranch and work a feedlot. I think the problem I have is she is trained better that I know how to use her.
