Mule Deer on the Wrong Side of the Road!

Just sharing a couple of pictures taken with my Nikon Coolpix 8800 with you all. My hunting buddy got a mule deer muzzle loader tag in Nevada. He had to put up with my whining because I hate muzzle loaders. We were driving down this road and his tag was for the left side of the road, guess what was on the right side of the road? Big 4x4 heavy body @ 458 Yards away and I figure around 320 pounds... big boy... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]


Look at the left of the arrow where there is none green sage brush, that's where they're bedding, in private property...Man!

Great pics Eaglet. Looks like home!
I can't count how many times I've been in Nevada and seen a little herd of bucks out in some alfalfa field with at least several nice ones in there. Maybe this year we will get to dump one of those nice Nevada mulies on Uncle B's hunt in the Arc Dome Wilderness area coming up in a few weeks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Mule Deer on the Wrong Side of the Road!

You don't have to worry about me bringing a muzzle loader! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Or a bow for that matter! I had a bad experience with both and since left them alone.
My 270 AM should be on my doorstep around the time NC deer season starts on OCT 15! Hint Hint Kirby!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] The only problem will be finding a place to realy stretch it out on game once I get it up to full tilt loads.
No they cut me back a little last month! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] The way I figure they will wait until deer season and then tell me that they need me to work all I can! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Typical of the company I work for! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

GoodGrouper,
Thanks, I wish you and uncle B the best. I hope you guys get a big one. Don't forget to bring my phone number with you just in case, you never know when you might need it being here in Nevada. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] If you don't have it I'm sending you an e-mail.
