Monster Muley in Velvet

March 16, 2012 by Rob Gray

My first archery hunt for mule deer in Colorado. I had spotted this monster mule deer several times, but could never get close enough to seal the deal. I spotted him pushing a doe over a couple of small ridges. I circled around and came up the last ridge where I thought he might be. As I looked over the crest of the ridge, I spotted his massive velvet antlers. I continued to move into a favorable shooting position and ranged him at 51 yards slightly quartered away. I had routinely practiced out to 70 yards, and knew my Mathews Drenalin and Rage 2 blade broadheads were deadly accurate. I set up for the shot when the monster buck turned his head to look for the doe. I talked myself through my shooting routine and let the arrow fly. The rest is history with this magnificent trophy as my prize. Thanks Mathews for such great products!!
