Every year for the last 11, I've bought a Montana eastern plains mule deer buck tag in case I happened to see one on the ranch. I see mule deer come thru every spring, but never during the Sept 1st to Jan 31st season. That changed today. The boss called me and said there was a nice buck down on the creekbottom on the north place, but he only had his pistol and was really busy spreading manure.

I grabbed my daypack and favorite M99 and went over towards where he last seen him. I caught him jumping the fence onto the home place. He was spooked and going pretty good and I missed my first shot. Put the next one into him as he went thru another opening in the trees. Left my stuff and headed back to grab the tractor. Sure is easier retrieving big bucks on the flats, than it is humping quarters over blowdown on the mountain. Didn't even work up a sweat.....

I’m glad you shut down the PTO before making your stalk. That RoundOak feller always kept his running.

Seemed wrong.

I keep telling you boys, roll the window down and use the mirror as a rest.

Portable deer stand or portable benchrest, whatever you want to call it, I don't care.

Always enjoy the yearly edition of the creekbottom tales! Nice pics and thanks for sharing! You seem to always get it done.

Must be awesome to have a boss that pays you to catch a muley buck like that. Is he hiring by chance? I work cheap and hard...

And here I thought you had a 700 in 270 with Talleys and a Leupold on board.

Had me hook, line and sinker.

Truth be told gentlemen I've thought about shooting a whitetail doe.



And the other day I tried to hit a cock with my pickup.


Zero success this season on anything.
