I will be heading north tomorrow for the mule deer hunt at the Matador the 10th-14th. I am excited and truly blessed to have been drawn. It has been a long time coming. I will try to update along the way. Any other TBHer's going?

Congrats and good luck. Have a great time. I'd head back tomorrow if I could, our trip down last month was really that much fun.

Thanks. I'm planning on getting on the road mid morning and hope to be there before dark. Looks like it will thaw out tomorrow, high around 50. Looking forward to the hunt and seeing the country. I know it will be very challenging, but I can't wait.

Well day 2 is coming to a close, but it has be awesome for me. Let me rewind. We were 4th to pick pastures and we ended up with Lone Canyon. We made a plan to sit and glass the first 2 sits and see if we could get a pattern down. I found a spot with good elevation and sat for a couple hours, got cold and realized my jacket was in the truck. Got up and walked 1/4-1/2 mile back to the truck and grabbed my jacket. When I get back to the spot there is a young mule deer buck starring at me, but he doesn't blow out. He's about 50 yds and he starts closing the distance. When he gets 10 yds I can't believe it. He was the only one I saw yesterday afternoon.
This morning I sat for a couple hours and started walking and glassing. I walked till 3 and decided I need a rest. Saw 7-8 mule deer does and 1 buck. Most were bedded and I got with in 50 yds or less of them. So I'm back on the side of the hill looking again. Weather is supposed to be good tomorrow, but predicting 30-40 mph winds on Thursday.

It’s GMDE, gun mule deer either sex hunt but with him getting so close it almost sounds like he’s bow hunting.

He is rifle hunting. He is hoping for a legal buck since they have the 20" width minimum now
