Well after 75 tries, I managed to get a third season mule deer tag through the leftover list. Getting anything through that list made me as proud as my first elk.

I’ll be hunting GMU 34 and expect to hunt the whole season but was wondering if any other schmucks out there wanted to have a base camp together. I’ll be solo and I’m not familiar with the area but live in CO and will be putting together a hunt plan (all be it rushed) over the next few weeks.

This is my first foray into mule deer which I seem to stay covered up with every time I go into the woods which probably means now that I have a tag, I will never see another mule deer for as long as I live.

Either way, I have a and will probably base camp lower and hunt higher in the frigid snow country as that’s what I think @robby denning would do to find big massive bucks. After I grow tired of the cold, I will then complain, go hunt lower, kill a dink, and wallow in self pity for the next 11 months because I didn’t hold out for a better deer.

Anyways, if you wanna drink some beer, I’ll probably have a few of those as well. Let’s make a plan.

Below is a track picture from my elk this year. Gotta love the suffer.

Seems about right. Buck fever kicks in and down goes the 2pt.
