Enjoy the process of chasing plains mule deer. It’s super addictive!
Yes, there’s something magical about an unsullied alpine basin — velvet racks bobbing in and out of the willows. With that noted, I’m a prairie rat. Born and reared in Colorado’s southeast corner, I started chasing plains mule deer at an early age.
Many hunters find themselves having harvested a big game animal in an area that may require them to quarter the animal for ease of field removal. The key is to remove the quarters from the carcass or to remove the entrails as quickly as possible. This will help to cool the meat faster.
Hunting the early season for any animal is always exciting. You can often take advantage of animals that have not been hunted since last fall and this can lead them to make mistakes that they are not known to do as the season wears on. On this hunt, I was able to exploit the behavior of early-season geese.
