I used 12 mule deer points to draw a unit 10 tag in Colorado. Then I purchased an outfitter business......... After everything was scheduled I was left with the first 3 days of season and maybe the last 3 days of season.

30-Sep-20
I found some bucks and on the the morning of the 3rd day I found my way to within 50 yards of 6 bedded bucks. The biggest lay under a bush with a small shot window. When he stood up I drew..... his mid body filled the window. I moved my pin as far right in the window as I could. The arrow hit a twig on the way in and deflected. Bucks ran off hunt was over.

Fast forward 3 weeks. We had a great elk season, came off the mountain and with 3 days of season left I headed back to unit 10. Colton my wrangler came with to help glass.

We found a few great deer the first day. I think 6 stalks to under 80 yards but no shots. Morning of the 2nd day we were in the same area as the first week. Found a group of bucks in low light and started a stalk. Hour later I'm with in 50 yards again. The biggest is in the open. He raised his head......its him, the buck I missed on day 3. He turned and I drew. 58 yards hard quartering away. Arrow hit just behind his rib cage mid body. He dropped like he was shot with a 7 mag. I cant believe its him.

I shot him with a 2" ss vortex head. He never took another step after the arrow hit him. God is so good to me!

Good buck! Congratulations!

Need to talk with you about that hunt. Might burn my deer points for it next year...

01-Oct-20
we did well. I guided 5 guys. 4 shot arrows the 5th was looking for something big. Out of 10 Bowsite guys 6 shot. 2 that didn't were longbow guys and had elk in compound range. It was very dry, hot most of the time.
