    Again, not particularly waterfowl related but I hope it interests you.

    I decided to not hunt waterfowl and instead search for the buck my dad was able to get an arrow in. Well I'm very glad I did! I was well rewarded! :tu

    Here is my photo story of my Dad's 2012 Utah Extended Archery Mule Deer hunt.

    He was able to get an arrow in this magnificent buck and the blood trail begins...

    Unfortunately this old bruiser wasn't going to give himself up so easily and we weren't able to recover him that day. I spent 5 whole days searching for this buck and finally was able to find him! We went from the absolute rock bottom low of feeling like we lost this buck to an exteme high of finding him later on.
