September 5th I caught up with a buck I had been watching during the summer up here in AB! Waited for him at the edge of a canola field and ended up shooting him at 10 yards! Awesome experience.

65 year old Mike with his first big archery mule deer. The buck gross scored 206 with a 200 inch typical frame and 6 inches of non typical points. One 30 yard perfectly placed shot took the buck down and since Mike has Parkinsons and an obvious tremor it was no small feat for him to pull off the shot. Huge congrats to Mike! He is such a nice guy too.

Just to let people know we hunt our deer on mostly private land but the land is easily accessed by anyone else who draws a tag and asks for permission to hunt. We don’t have exclusive access to any land. It’s actually illegal to pay landowners for hunting access.

From: t-roy

Great buck, Mike! Congrats to you and the hunter!

18-Sep-22
CTBobcat, yes it’s a 206 gross non typical. A 199 6/8 main frame and 6 2/8 non typical points. Mike couldn’t get into a better position for photos due to his limited mobility.

And yes visitors to Canada have to be vaccinated to enter, same as visitors to the USA. It’s a ridiculous rule for both countries!

Here’s Mike McEntee’s buddy Fred with the buck he took in the same week, 190 gross. It was a main frame 178 with an extra inline point on the left antler, and another small point tucked in on the right antler hard to see them. Huge brows, almost like a whitetail! Two happy hunters that week.

(By the way we score all of our bucks at the dinner table with everyone in camp watching every measurement taken and the avid score guys arguing about exactly how to do the questionable measurements.)

A better perspective of both bucks. Two happy 65 year old buddies! Both bucks were massively heavy and long tined which helped the scores.

Canada set to drop the vaccine requirement September 30.

21-Sep-22
SteveB, that is the best news I’ve heard in 2 1/2 years of government torture! Hopefully it truly happens and the USA drops their vax requirement for visitors too!!

But more importantly I hope bow hunters post some more mule deer pics!! This can’t be all the mule deer killed by bowsiters or it’s a lame bunch?! Haha

Congrats gentlemen !! For this eastern boy. Mule Deer capture the west even more so than elk. Elk lived and still live in the east. But To me, Mulies are iconic symbols of the west.

This was Blake’s 4th muley hunt with us this past Sept 2022. 173 gross on this one. He says that the mule deer bowhunting is so much better here than at home and with us having several great bucks scouted out that he would rather come to Alberta. He killed a 202 score buck a few years ago with us too.

2022 Region F General Season mule deer with the bow! After hunting for 10+ days up in the high country, running into more griz than deer, and not even getting an opportunity at a buck I was feeling pretty discouraged. Having just moved to Wyoming earlier this year, I was limited to the non-wilderness areas. The bucks I did see were high up in the wilderness where I couldn’t hunt. This made all the effort I was expending to get up there seem futile. Regardless, I prepared for the general season determined to take my first mule deer still using my bow. I completely re-located and changed elevation from where I had hunted during the archery season. On the first day of season, I began to gain some valuable intel. Everyone I talked to at the trailhead later that night hadn’t seen anything, so I knew I was onto something. The next morning I set out super early and got into glassing position well before first light. Five minutes after legal shooting light began, I spotted a group of four bucks far off and watched them work into a group of trees to bed down. With a perfect wind for the stalk, I made sure the bucks where settled in and let my thermals get right. Not long after I began my stalk. Between the bucks and I laid incredibly steep country, rivers, and many other obstacles. So I traversed down the cliffs and faces to the rivers and used contractor bags I had in my pack as make shift waders to get across. After covering around two and a half miles, I slowed down and prepared for the final push. I managed to slip into fifty yards of the bucks and released a perfect arrow. The buck I shot ran twenty yards and piled up! I thought to myself, “I can’t believe I actually did it!” But that excitement was short lived as I realized that I’m solo in grizzly country, have meat on the ground, and in an area that a mauling took place the day before. So I quickly tagged the buck and began dragging him out to an open area where I had a good visual around me if a bear was to approach. I snapped a few photos and made quick work of the buck, loading him up in my pack and headed on back to the trailhead. I couldn’t be more stoked to get it done with the bow and to tag my first animal in the great state of Wyoming!

Thanks JL I was able to put a stalk on him. Wind was really tough this year. Was able to get about 15 yards before wind change and he stood up I was able to get a arrow in him. First longbow kill. I usually shoot a recurve but at old age I had to step down to 54pounds from 60 I couldn't pull back. I had a few chance at elk too but they were spikes. Call both to about 15 yards. Got into few cow elk too but to far for me at 40 yards. I can shoot 40 but not accurately.
