Today on the Rokcast, Robby hosts Josh Boyd. Besides being a very dedicated hunter, Josh is also a Hydrologist for USFS. Josh has measured and studied winter severity for over 20 years from SE Arizona to NW Montana. With some certainty, Josh can predict mule deer winterkill.  They dive into Snow Water Equivalent, where and how it’s measured, the data that comes from it, and how it can help you make better decisions when planning your mule deer hunt around winterkill. Winter severity could be the number one predictor of the size of a mule deer population.

Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator
