Finally notched a 2018 tag! A solid week of elk hunting didn’t produce any meat, but deer backstraps will do. I spent 7 days hunting elk and even though I got into some I couldn’t get a decent shot at a bull. Partly out of frustration and partly looking for an easier hunt, I left the mountains and went to a section of BLM land to look for a deer. The spot proved productive and there were three muley bucks bedded in a draw not far from the road. After a short but intense stalk I was able to put an arrow in this buck, making him the first muley I’ve taken with a bow in about 7 years.
