Took this desert mulie with a little 52" recurve 45# at my draw, Magnus 4 blade, 600 gr. arrow compete penetration.
Nice desert mulie with some bonus character...congrats!
Wow, David that is an incredible desert buck! Absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!
Amazing what a good wet year can do for those mule deer in the desert! Hopefully have a great fawn crop and a few more good wet years!
Good for you!
Great buck, congrats!

Nice Buck ! Congrats !
Beauty buck, congrats! What's your draw length?
Really nice buck, congratulations.
Very nice deer. Congratulations
That's awesome! Out of curiosity, did you take it spot and stalk, sitting water, ambushing it in a good spot, etc.? Just curious to hear a little detail about how you got him. It doesn't really matter- it's a beautiful buck anyway you got him!

That's a beauty! Congrats.
Congratulations. Agree with Scoot about details. Haven't hunted desert before, so intrigued by methods and challenges.

Congrats! What a buck!
Wow, great buck David! Did you call him in?
No, but thx. for comments. Sorry I'm not online much. Good hunting to all who are still afield. David
Ambush, my draw is only 26.5" because I'm using a nonmechanical release of my own design that shortens my draw which helps with very short Trad. bows and eliminates finger pinch entirely. I couldn't shoot short recurves worth a darn using tab or glove.
Congrats David! Those kind of desert bucks are hard to come by...…..shots can be long so you did great shooting your trad bow, woo-hoo!
Thanks. 52" is a short but obviously very maneuverable bow. I have an old 58" Bear and with a 6' 3" wingspan It does stack and pinch. But it shoots good.
Congrats on a great buck!!
Fantastic buck! Congrats. Those desert mule deer have humbled me. Way to get it done with the recurve!
