I just made it home from an outstanding mule deer hunt in New Mexico with my son. I’m not exaggerating when I say that hunt was one of the most fun hunts I’ve ever been on. We dealt with some wild conditions, had a lot of fun, and ultimately were successful in tagging a buck. Today’s episode is a detailed recap of that hunt, evaluations of some gear we used, and some of the lessons we learned along the way.
