Almost lost traditional deer
« on: January 02, 2008, 02:34:00 PM »
After several misses on Michigan whitetails and a phone call to have his brother return his compound, my buddy arrowed his first traditional harvest. Shooting a desert mulie is no easy feat, especially a bedded one to boot. This deer was shot a 25 yards and didn't run another 20 yards. Only a few teeth remained on the lower jaw. Properly the deer's last year of life. I true trophy and a phone call back to his brother to keep the wheeled bow.

AWESOME.  I would love to just see a mule deer.  I hear that they are so much bigger than whitetails.  I have to travel across 4 provinces to Alberta before a see one.  3000 miles.
A bad day of hunting is still far better than a good day at work.
