1st Day Buck

November 2009

Robert St. Pierre of Oklahoma, took this nice mule deer on the first day of his hunt.  We were sitting on the edge of an alfalfa field that was being heavily used by deer.

About 30 minutes before sunset, 20 does poured out of the mesquite brush into the field.   We could see a couple of bucks come right up to the edge of the brush line, but were reluctant to go into the field.  They were just out of range and stayed back in the brush, so Robert eased up towards them and waited.  One of the bucks finally jumped the fence and trotted into the field right at sunset.  He was 300 yards when Robert put him down.
