There’s been some good news since my last post Bad Winter, Now What?.  The weather has moderated across a big swath of the western states.  We’re not out of the danger zone yet.  Significant winterkill could still be a factor, but if we don’t get any big cold storms between now and late March, we may skate over what could have been a very bad winter for mule deer. Stay close…

Besides watching the weather, I’ve been putting together reviews on all the gear I used in 2016.

Next up is my Kryptek Vellus & Anorak review.

Kryptek married modern technology with fleece to bring about a system that I can recommend for western mule deer hunting.  If you need a warm, quiet, water/windproof system, give this review a read. Even if you can’t or don’t want to buy the entire system, each piece offers benefits as a stand-alone garment.  Just click the title below for more info…

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
