    Well I rarely get to hunt myself but last week thanks to some fellow AH’rs who were hunting bison, pigs, and does with me I got to pull the trigger a couple times. I was very pleased to finally get to recover this whitetail. I had an encounter with him during bow season which culminated in a bad shot on my part and a lost deer. Well I’ll be damned if he didn’t show back up and I finally got to finish what I started. 1E861471-6B80-4844-9DEA-3CAF447C9542.jpeg 420B3B87-6E2D-47EB-99F8-52182658E277.jpeg
    Well I had just finished skinning this deer and clients were settled into hog blinds down on the creek when Bruce came and got me. He told me he saw a really nice management mule deer so we went and took a look. Sure enough up on top on one of my wheat fields was this guy! 2 deer down in about an hour and a half. I couldn’t believe my luck. Clients took 3 feral pigs at the same time all this was going on too. DD838CCA-3FC4-4A49-A26B-0A4D370AF8C4.jpeg F96F9729-15B9-48DA-8CBB-5091D1D19819.jpeg

    That's a management muley? Jeez I'd be happy with that as a trophy!

    A couple of fine deer for sure! I would have been dancing in the street to have taken either of those!
    Did I miss your report on your fishing trip?

    Glad to see you were able to get some time behind the trigger. Great Muleys - kind of like everything else you have on the ranch.

    Two beauties there...I wouldn’t consider that mulie a management buck either! There has been several seasons that I’ve shot both a whitetail and a mulie, but never on the same day! Congrats!

    I suppose you didn’t use your 9.3x74 Double? That would have been too much fun!

    lol, that would have been awesome! No I took the whitetail with the clients rifle as I didn’t have a rifle with me at that moment and the mulie I shot with my trusty 06.

    Great bucks!
    I've hunted out of childress multiple times but have yet to get a whitetail as nice.

    You mind saying where in the Panhandle?
    I was raised in the Panhandle and never saw deer like yours.
