On this hunt, Steve heads to Colorado's Rocky Mountains with his friend Brody Henderson to track down their favorite big game animal, mule deer. To reach the best hunting, they use a raft to gain access to some public land hidey holes. The November mule deer rut is beginning but unseasonably warm, dry conditions make for a challenging hunt. Steve and Brody are both hoping for a mature, big-racked shooter buck, but there’s only so much time in the season, and a young meat buck is better than no buck at all. After the hunt, Steve sets up a taste test of raw venison to determine what’s better eating- mature shooter bucks, or young meat bucks.
