Hunting big mule deer during the rut is one of life’s great pleasures for me.  Even better when I can share with others who might pick up a tip on what it takes to punch a tag during the rut (it’s harder than most of us believe.)

Filmmaker and vidoegrapher Jordan Budd followed me and a good friend, Travis Hobbs, around for five days on a recent November hunt.  She did a great job putting together a film from our adventures and misadventures.

If you want to feel what it’s like to hunt big mule deer in the rut on easy-to-get tags, this film is for you.

You can comment or ask questions on the Youtube video or if Rokslide is more your style, you can post here.

Robby Denning
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
