    I May Send My Mule Deer Tag Back

    I have been in the unit three time looking and planning my mule deer hunt. Things have changed and now I am spending my days in Rochester Mn waiting on my wife to recover from lung surgery. I already sent Colorado my bear tag and ask for a refund. The mule deer tag will be a different story, I will keep the points and they can keep the money.
    We were here at Mayo about six weeks ago and could have had surgery then but she wanted me to get in the bear hunt so we returned to Arkansas. When we returned to Arkansas she was not in good enough shape for me to leave so I sent the tag back. I plan to wait as long as posssible before sending the mule deer tag back. There is always Nebraska which is a little later in the seasons and I may not be able to do that either.
    I guess this is what I get for getting old, even old hunter is young compared to me. She has sponsored lots of good hunting so maybe she can get well before I hunt again.
    I need to say thanks to the Mayo Clinic and their best in the world health care. (Wish Obama could see this)

    You and your wife are in my prayers, friend.

    Her healthy recovery first, and successful hunting right after.

    I have to agree. Your wife is very important and if she is anything like mine and it sounds like she is she would want you to go. But in her time of need you should be with her no doubt. There is plenty if time to hunt

    I had to give up my tag this year too. Not fun when you don't have many hunts left.

    Good thoughts and prayers for you wife. How old are you?

    Yeah, you got me on age. I was a Christmas baby.

    Rib will be fine. I have to decide if I want a nice relaxed doe hunt with hardly any other hunters, or a bull elk hunt with 2000 other hunters? I'm not sure why i'm even thinking about it? The elk hunt will be torture.

    Does are good to eat. That would be my choice. If you do hunt bull it will be in 55? They gather around the lake mentioned befor they come to winter ground. I have not seen this myself. Guide at Taylor Park told me

    Unlikely they'd be moving as early as 2nd season. The lake would be the most crowded area.

    The bulls at that time of year will most likely be alone in secluded areas. Sort of secluded with 2000 hunters.
