Re: Hoping to hunt CO mule deer this fall
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.
