I am brand new to even scouting for mule deer and hold a Nevada buck tag for the early rifle season. I'm excited and concerned at the same time: excited that I have the chance, but concerned that I lack the experience. I have only ever hunted whitetails and it doesn't take a scientist to figure out that it's a completely different ballgame in totally different terrain. That said, ya gotta start somewhere. Time to start scouting.
What is your technique for breaking down the mountains and finding moving or bedded game? Where do you usually look first thing in the morning, midday, and at dusk?
Any info is appreciated. Thanks for your help!
