Hey Rok Blog subscribers, in keeping with my mission of helping you become a better mule deer hunter, I wanted to invite you to my friend Marc “Muleyslayer” Smith’s upcoming seminar.  For going on the 10th year, Marc will again be presenting at the Western Hunting Expo in Salt Lake City.  His seminar “The Fundamental’s of Hunting Mule Deer” is slated for both Friday, February 14th at 3:00 PM and Saturday, February 15th at 12:30 PM.  I’ll be attending one or both of those, so if you see me, say hello.

If you haven’t been to one of Marc’s seminars, you’re missing the boat!  He provides an entertaining seminar that can help you become a better buck hunter.  Marc hunts with archery, muzzleloader, and rifle from the desert to the high country, so there are tips and tactics for everyone.

Marc has an engaging off-the-cuff teaching style that keeps listeners tuned in. He also takes questions that can fill in the gaps in the information. Marc’s also know to hand out free gear at his seminars.

Here is a summary of what Marc is covering in “Fundamentals of Hunting Mule Deer”:

In this Seminar Marc Smith AKA “Muley Slayer” will discuss the fundamentals of hunting mule deer in all terrain, seasons and elevations. Marc’s #1 hunting style for mule deer is to bowhunt them in the rugged mountainous high country in the early season. However picking up his beloved Weatherby rifles and pursuing them down in the lower country in the general rifle seasons comes in at a very close second!

Marc will cover:

  • Cyber Scouting
  • Keying in on food sources
  • Hunting Migration vs. Resident Deer
  • Gear Selection
  • Approach by season and state
  • Early High Country How-To for Bowhunting

As always the Q&A is a show favorite as Marc gets the crowd engaged in great hunting stories and info exchange! Marc’s generous partners will have gear on hand to hand out to participants in the Q&A, an all time favorite with the young hunters in the crowd. Join Marc as he celebrates his 10th straight year of presenting on the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo Seminar Stage!

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
