    Yes, my first mule deer. Rifle hunt in 2017 on my own farm in SW Kansas.

    Stay tuned for the 2018 muzzle loader version.... Erik has that one as well. Thanks for the great job Erik and for posting those fantastic photos.

    The big one out there has thus far eluded me;)

    Definitely one fine mule deer! And a fine looking mount as well Erik!
    I’ve only seen one mule deer in Colorado that could beat that and it watered in my artesian well tank often...except during hunting season! It was 16 points...on each side!

    Oh I’m jealous ActionBob!

    Used to be a few mule deer around Milford Lake. I think the whitetail eventually breed them out of the area. I hope that doesn't happen in Western Kansas.

    Not on my farm, pure mule deer country. No habitat for whitetail.
