Re: Hoping to hunt CO mule deer this fall

Good luck lefty (sambo3006) from another lefty on your Colo tags. We both finally drew premier unit 55 mulie buck tags for second rifle this yr so we are really happy about that. Last mule deer I kilt in our honey hole was a doe at 37 yards. After I shot her a 4x4 buck walked out and looked to see where she went, but I had no buck tag. Good luck to ya.

No kidding! More oranges then deer on public land, this is just north of Craig. Those private land owners make so much money off of hunters due to crazy amount of animals.

Re: Hoping to hunt CO mule deer this fall

Thanks, silvertip-co.
My first mule deer was in 1997 with my bow in the Uncompahgre. I had been hunting for about 5 or 6 days and had only seen a few small bucks. I made an awesome stalk on a mature doe and double lunged her from 8 steps. No sooner had she fallen than a group of deer (I believe she was the lead doe) came walking along the same path including a probable P&Y 4x4. Unfortunately she could not be revived and I had to let the beautiful buck walk. No regrets on taking her, though. My first western bow kill.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.

I drew a muzzleloader tag for unit 62. I have not been in the unit before, but was planning on hunting in the northern/middle part of the Uncompahgre National Forest. Any information would be appreciated. We plan on camping and hunting on foot. Is their a lot of ATV hunting in this area?
