With the last three films on Hunting Big Mule Deer that I put out…

…there was something missing: me punching a tag!

Well, actually Travis killed a 9-year old buck–lab aged–and I missed a good buck in that last film, but it still felt like something was missing.

The Hard Truth of Hunting Big Mule Deer

Now this might sound like a lame excuse, but when it comes to hunting big mule deer DIY, a guy can expect to eat a lot of tags.  It’s just how it is.  And  just so you know, it’s how it’s always been for me. I estimate that I’ve eaten about 70% of my tags over the years.

So while I enjoyed making those films, and I think I passed on a lot of big buck knowledge, it didn’t sit well with me that no tags were punched.

While it’s true that “it’s called hunting for a reason”, punching a tag after much effort spent is one of the most rewarding pursuits in life–at least to me!

So I dug through my video archives and I found gold for you Rok Blog followers. I spent a few months putting it all together and even hired a professional editor (Jordan Budd of Running Water Media) to put the final touches on my latest film:

The Best of Hunting Big Mule Deer 2010-2019

I’m pretty happy with the final product.  It’s over 40 minutes of back stories and highlights from every successful hunt of that decade. Long time Rok Blog followers will recognize some of those scenes, but never before have they all been together in one film.

If you want to be a better buck hunter, connect with other successful buck hunters any way you can. I think this latest film will do just that for you.

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
