2020 Wyoming Mule Deer Hunt. 11/11 Tags Filled!!

Unread postby RuskiBow » Sat Oct 10, 2020 5:43 am

Our traditional Wyoming Hunt trip has been going on for it’s 3rd now. We hunted antelope back in 2018, then antelope doe/mule deer in 2019, now a big mule deer hunt with 11 guys at camp for 2020.

1st day- Driving to Wyoming, a 14 hour drive from Missouri to NorthEast Wyoming. We arrived around 8pm and setup camp.

2nd day- waited for the rest of our crew to arrive. Made breakfast and got out to start scouting BLM and State public land pieces for bucks! Combined, we ended up seeing not much deer at all and were kind of disappointed before the start of the first day of the season.

3rd- Opening day! Everyone spread out all over to hunt and cover as much ground as possible. I hunted with my brother in law and hit up a piece of BLM that we spotted a big group of does at the night before, in hopes they’d draw in some bucks.
No luck at all.
Came back to camp and one of our guys shot a decent 3 point for the morning!

We came back to camp mid day and spent a few hours eating lunch and making a game plan for the evening. I had the itch to keep hunting and decided to go off on my own, took the side by side and drove off far. My plan was to walk the canyons and look for bedded bucks in the shade, away from the roads.

I didn’t have to wait long. 1/2 mile into my hike I run into a small 4 point in velvet, standing up out of his bed in a canyon and I decided to shoot him! It was my first mule deer, I wasn’t going to be picky! 80 yard perfect double lung shot. He ran 50-60 yards and piled up!!

To be the honest, the rest of the days were a blur. We ended up shooting 6 bucks on opening day! We never expected that to happen at all.

2nd day of season we fill out 2 tags.
3rd day, 1 tag was filled.
4th day was a bust, last 2 guys didn’t get it done.

5th day and last day for us, the last 2 guys ended up filling their tags on a 2 point and spike, right out of the BLM we were camped on! Everyone was very happy and ecstatic that we were able to fill 11 tags!

Ill post pics of all the bucks that I have, plus bonus shed finds, and the monster buck shot out of our camp too!

All in all it was an amazing hunt, filled with ups and downs, and I can’t wait to go back next year.

Time to focus on bow hunting in Missouri and get me a doe, and a big buck here as well!!
