Beautiful buck!
If you are arguing with an idiot and someone passes by, they don't know who's the idiot.

Thanks guys, it took me 32 years to draw an AZ tag although some years I did points only. This was my only mule deer hunt in 60 yrs. of hunting that I had a chance at 5 different bucks of 170 in. or better.

Very nice buck, congrats. :) :)

When I opened the pictures a few more were there to scroll through and there was a picture of 4 nice Muley bucks and a smaller bull elk. Not sure if it was just my computer but I know I have seen it on here before but can't remember whose pic it was.

Congratulations! Thats a wall hanger for sure. As far as waiting 32 years to get drawn, better late than never, and you made the most of it.

awesome buck  8)  it may have took you 32 years, to get drawn, but you did good for the time hunting mule deer.

Beautiful deer !   what  unit ?     It's like me I have 24 points for AZ Antelope,  some years  I also  buy the points only.  We are getting some very nice deer in AZ  unit 3a/3c the last few years after the re-growth from the Rodeo/Chedski fire in 2002, the area is not that far from our house.   G&F is trying to get more elk out of there and turn it into a more buck to doe ratio hunt units.  Yesterday the guys took 2 smaller bulls,   one spike and one 5 by in the cedars ,  ridge to ridge shot was 496 yds on both elk, 7mm mags.  My son said he saw a couple very large muleys ,  I may very well start putting in for 3a/3c for muleys  my wife has been wanting a big muley to hang on the wall.   Anyway congratulations on a very nice deer.

Zonie it was 12bw and the deer were there even though it was hot and dry. Travis had 2 camps of 4 hunters and there was 6 bucks killed that averaged over 190 gross before I left after 4 days.

Thanks,   I love that whole area,  my wife has a few points for deer.  I know she would love to go back up to the Kaibab 12 a/e, 12b  & strip units.  We've hunted several time's in 12ae and 12aw always the early hunts ,  never  drawn for the late hunts.  Been in there on the Plateau when the snow was so bad guy's were leaving their lesser 4x4 rigs  & trailers couldn't get out.  Weather has been changing the last few years much dryer.  One year the old jeep broke down had to limp across the AZ / Utah border into Kanab Utah and buy a carb rebuild kit we were hunting does when the kids were young in 12aw.

Zonie, Travis told me they killed 4 big bucks on the early hunt this year which I understand is very unusual. The deer were there early for some reason and excellent antler growth this year.
