Wyoming Mule Deer Hunt a SUCCESS!!

As August turns to September the mornings start to cool. This is that awesome transitional time of the year that signifies the start of archery season. This year we were headed to Southwest Wyoming for a mule deer hunt with R and K. Outfitting Company. We arrived in Evanston Wyoming on August 31 anticipating seeing big bucks still in velvet.

Our hunting party consisted of myself, Sarah Murphey (a good friend and new camera person we were using), our good friend and new Outback Outdoors Team member, Dave Beronio, and Ryan Litwin and his dad Gary. We rolled into town met up at the Wal-Mart and soon we were headed out to look at the country it would be hunting and glass up some bucks.

This hunt was very special in a few regards because last year we hunted R and K Outfitting Company’s property in Utah and were unable to put a buck on the ground. Opening morning finally came and we’re out glassing bucks before the sun had fully risen. The first morning we saw lots of bucks but nothing of the quality we were looking for.

That afternoon we were able to find a few quality trophy mule deer bucks and I was fortunate enough to make a stalk our group of bucks moving below a small coolie. Sarah and I came round the corner and to our surprise a nice young buck was standing broadside just within range of my cross bow. Sarah quickly got on the buck and I was able to meet a clean shot and even with my damaged shoulder take a nice Wyoming muley buck.

This hunt meant a lot to me, because actually I didn’t think it would happen. Because of the severity of the injury to my shoulder and the nerve damage in my hand I thought my season was done before it even started. This goes to show that with a strong competitive drive even under adverse conditions a Hunter can still get out and enjoy the outdoors and be successful.

Be sure to watch in the near future for this exciting hunt on www.outbackoutdoors.net.

Next up, elk in the high country of Colorado.
