My big game seasons have just ended and we had another great year with 100% success for every species. I just returned from my fall mule deer hunts in Nevada and while the deer population was down this year, we saw some really nice bucks. Mike Barkdoll was fortunate enough to take a nice 31 inch buck on his hunt and it was the second biggest buck we saw during his hunt. (You can see the photos of Mike's buck on my website in the Photo Gallery under Nevada Deer Hunting.) We had actually seen a much bigger buck 3 times in a day and half but couldnâ€™t get a shot at him. When I spotted this buck at about 1 miles first thing in the morning, we thought it was the bigger buck but after a stalk to 300 yards, we realized it was a different big buck and Mike was able to take him at 310 yards. Congratulations Mike.
I am heading back to Nevada today to guide chukar hunters and soon we will be lion hunting. I have rented a house on a ranch in central Nevada and will be running my chukar and lion hunts from there. We stayed at the ranch house for all of my deer hunts and it was a huge hit with all the hunters. If anyone is interested in chukar, lion, or coyote hunts, I still have availability for this year.
The chukar hunting is better than it was last year but not as good as three or four years ago. We were seeing plenty of birds the first 5 days of the season and had a couple of days where we shot limits.
Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving.
