Hey guys and gals, I spent most of the month in Arizona chasing deer, I connected on this buck, it was a great experience, I learned alot about my family, gear and deer! I will be back down there chasing bear hopefully this summer and coues next year when I am eligible. What an outstanding start of the new year for me.

I put multiple days into this buck, he was the best mule deer I found and I wanted him BAD!

Awesome buck Dr. Glad to see you had a successful hunt. I have only heard how hard it is to get in on a late season buck down in AZ. I really hope to make it down there in 2014. Congrats man!!

Congrats! Nice deer. How was the weather out there?

Funny you ask, I left Reno and weather was highs in the 30s. I get down there and lows were in the 30s. That didnt last long. They broke a whole bunch of cold weather records. It was 1 degree when I woke up one morning. That cold snap lasted almost 2 weeks! One of the reasons I decided to go down there was to get OUT of the cold. By week 3 though it warmed up nice and I actually received a sunburn stalking deer.

Good job Travis! Cool that your family spent the time with you too. Good looking buck and I'll bet some good eating too.

Here's an idea for you since your kids were along with you. My kids ALL TIME favorite breakfast is venison steaks dredged in flour and pan fried in butter. Make a gravy out of the drippings. Cook up some pancakes and have venison steaks, pancakes and gravy (kinda like biscuits and gravy, only better). That's my go to meal when I want my kids to be happy...they love it!
