Bearpaw 2011 Archery Mule Deer hunt was good and could have been great.
We harvested 5 bucks for 8 hunters with a respectable average of 173".
2011 was the year of "what ifs". We missed 11 bucks on the archery hunt alone; the most in our company history. Ever.
Ricky Smith harvested a great buck, 178" 4X4 with a well placed 45 yard shot.
Roy Walk hunted his tail off with guide Justin Redlick and had an opportunity at a 200" buck and ended up settling for a 175". He made a great 60 yard shot!
Don Mullis also hunted hard taking his buck at the end of his hunt.
Andy Jennings and Steve Spell each took good bucks and both had chances at great bull Elk.
