Mule Deer Bow Hunt- Video Blog #1
Here is a glimpse of my Nevada backcountry bow hunt. This is the biggest buck that I spotted this trip. I have definitely seen better years for trophy bucks but still had a great time. I had passed up a few smaller bucks on the hunt as well. Although I did not end up killing a deer I had a great time. In the video, if you look close on the clip where I shoot with the Go-pro helmet cam on you can actually see the big buck I missed. For the full hunt be sure to catch it on Season Three of Solo Hunters on the Sportsman's Channel.
Some seasons are just plain tough and this has been shaping up to be the roughest season I have ever had mentally. With my first miss of the year under my belt I thought I got it all out of the way early. Hunting with my new bow I have still yet to get a kill on it (big game). The bad luck streak continued into my sheep hunt in Alaska. Stay posted for more to come.
The Montana archery season starts this weekend so I will be trying to break the new bow in on an elk. If I have another colossal miss there may be a free bow up for grabs shortly.
