David Long's book came in yesterday and I can't thank you guys enough for recommending it. This is EXACTLY the kind of treatise on mule deer hunting a newbie like me needs. The book is broken down beautifully and has excellent, illustrative pictures to go along with the explanations. Tons of great info on glassing and positioning in just the few chapters I read last night. I can't wait to dig deeper into this one. Five stars for the this recommendation.
Buy the best optics you can, Get as high as you can, Get there in the dark in the mornings, and stay till dark in the evinings.
For most of the day you will see nothing, good time to take a nap.
