Overall Impression: good

I was able to draw a limited mule deer tag (only 50 given in the zone) in the area of Upper Canyon Outfitter's camp. After filling my elk tag, Donna helped me utilize my mule deer tag based upon her knowledge of the area. We started the morning by staking out an area were we had seen a thophy buck the night before. Just as she said, the buck showed up between 7 and 8 am and I ended up missing a 125 yard shot. After a trip to the shooting range, I discovered my scope had been bumped and we had to resighted the gun in. Then after an early lunch, we drove to and area and she spotted a large buck about a mile up the gulch. After a two to three hour stalk up to the top of the gulch, I missed an even bigger buck at 350 yards. After all this we ended the day by glassing a valley and just before dark, I filled my tag with a 185+ point mule deer buck at 175 yards. I would not have be able to complete this great day without the help of Donna McDonald and Upper Canyon Outfitters
