    Patterning Muleys

    Have you found that you can pattern Mule Deer in the early season, before they shed their velvet, on a heavy trail heading to water in an area that they are almost undisturbed(with a trail cam)? I have found one of these and we have seen some big bucks in that spot it is just so thick it's hard to stalk them and impossible to watch them bed. (I'm already planning for next year's hunt out here in nevada!!)

    Depends on the area. In the desert it is very hard and the bigger ones come to a certain water hole you might be sitting at once in a 5 day period. I do find the higher elevations much easier to pattern

    I think I am going to have the same problem here in Nebraska. I am trying to figure out how to hunt the Muley's up north by Valentine and I purchased the book Public Land Muleys from the Eastman's store. It has been a good read but it applies to the High Country Mulies and I am not sure it will help me for where I am going. I've been in touch with the Park Ranger quite a bit trying to figure out where to go in this area. Which was a good idea because I was looking at another area on the park I still haven't completely made up my mind on where I am going but I am feeling good about the hunt. I just finished sighting in my smokeless ml and I am starting to put supplies together for a couple night stay out under the stars. Either way there are a lot of good ideas on here and enjoy reading all the post.

    Good luck this year on your hunts and stay safe!
