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


  1. Id spend 500$ on hooking up a youngster at our local archery shop with new hunting gear to get them out hunting with us. We have a young lady dieing to get out there. We pitched in and got her some decent archery equipment now we are working on the hunting clothes and other things. Shes a trooper.

  2. I would get my fiance squared away with archery gear for this coming season, maybe get some arrows for myself as well!

  3. Archery equipment. I’m just starting to get into archery, thanks to a cousin, and need all the bells and whistles.

  4. Too many things to count, but need some new base layers, a new release, and whatever else strikes the fancy!

  5. I would spend the 500 on a much needed light weight down sleeping bag or a multitude of other amazing gear BlackOrvis.com offers!! Thank you for the opportunity and God bless!

  6. If I’m blessed with $500 I’ll outfit my son who has just grown out of all his hunting clothes!

  7. This would go toward outfitting my daughter so we could be twins when we’re out in the wild hunting elk and deer!

  8. I’ve got a September Elk hunt upcoming. I’d spend it on the Sitka Pantanal gloves, 4 pair of First Lite Red Desert boxer briefs, 4 pair of FL mountain athelete compression socks, & 4 pair of FL mountain athelete cold weather socks!

    Thanks for the great contest! Very generous to offer this!

  9. Thanks for the opportunity. I would love to upgrade my Nikon binocs to Vortex Razor HD or maybe some Swarovski. I have a Dall hunt coming up soon!

  10. It would be nice to spend $500 on whatever I wanted without having to worry about the budget or bills. I’ve been blessed with hunting gear to this point, but it would be nice to splurge.

  11. I would use it to gear up my 15 and 13 year olds who are ready to “go deep” with me in the coming hunts.

  12. Great cross promotion guys. I love camofire but had never checked out black ovis before and didn’t realize all the stuff they had on there. Just recently have discovered rokslide while researching back packs and love all the great info.

    I would get a Havalon Piranta, a Sitka Fanatic jacket and a Rhinehart Zombie target for the kids. Hard to choose, there is a ton of great stuff.

  13. On Camofire all the time! Check Blackovis for anything I cant pick up on the rokslide classifieds.

    Id be getting more sitka gear or maybe put it towards me new vortex razor HD!

    amp from the forums. 🙂

  14. What wouldn’t I buy? In all seriousness I would go for a big ticket item. $500 is a good start. More than likely optics!

    Kudos to camofire, blackovis, and rokslide!

  15. I don’t know!!! So much cool stuff to choose from. Gear for my kid and a spotting scope. This site roks!!!

  16. I’m in some need of a good pair of boots first off. Then i would LOVE to get me set up with some First Lite gear, and then whatever archery odds and ends I can get. I would have a dang tough time with only $500 though 😀

  17. I would put this towards a new pair of boots for my first elk hunt coming up in September in Colorado.

  18. A new sleeping bag. Somethings like undies and sleeping bags you don’t won’t to borrow from your buddies.

  19. I would use it towards a new scope for a build I have going.

    Thanks to all for the nice Giveaway.

  20. I would probably help someone else out! Thank you for teaming up with Kendall and Mark, Black Ovis and the one that started it all, CAMOFIRE!

  21. Me and my buddies are headed out on our first elk hunt this September (DIY). Still have some gear we need, $500 would get us where we need to be.
