I spent sixty days bow hunting since August of 2012 to re-connect with a giant, reclusive and ghostly desert mule deer. This sub species of the Rocky Mountain Mule Deer is the ultimate survivor. Their relatively small body size attests to the difficult environment they forge a life in. Severe drought, high temperatures, poor feed, and heavy predation are all obstacles these warriors overcome. The desert is unforgiving and difficult to bow hunt. The dry, rocky ground is noisy and tough to silently pursue game. The desert is flat and choked with mesquites and palo verde that literally swallow deer from sight. To harvest a buck mule deer in the desert with a bow is a feat. To harvest a mature, if not ancient giant who has surpassed nearly a decade of opposition is the ultimate archer’s quarry. I have committed to get it done. Sixty days may be what it takes. Video Rating: / 5

    Man did I ever enjoy this vid. There's some really good deer here in AZ. My son and I moved here a little over a year ago. We're anxiously awaiting the opening of deer season which is two days away. Really excited too. Thanks for sharing your hunt. Bowhunting is a lot tougher than gun hunting but whatever the method, the excitement is still there. And the meat is super too. Thanks again for the great video. Keep 'em coming!

    Cool hunt, nice buck, but no kill shot.  I don't want to "should" all over you, so I'll just say I don't need a bunch of music and editing to make up for the lack of a kill shot on camera.  Nice hunt though, and way to get after em deep in that country, I know personally that AZ  back country is tough. Keep after em.

    Congrats, Zac! Enjoyed the vid a lot. I'm about to embark on my first Arizona deer hunt in December, and I'm getting buck fever already! Thanks for giving me something to watch =)

    I've watched this video a bunch. I'm going to Arizona mid January 2015 to hunt mule deer and hopefully draw a javelina tag. Looks like a hard hunt but I'm super stoked to go.

    Awsome videos and great hunts! I'm from Idaho and have hunted mule deer and elk my entire life and have grown to love and focus on archery only as well. Can't wait to see more great videos! Can't wait for next Friday either as my archery elk hunt opens on August 30th, it's almost here!

    Great way to tell the story without even talking much.  I like to tell my hunting stories too with a camera – – but I think this ones a little more creative with some great video work.  I love how you spoke volumes picking up that horse shoe without even saying a word.  Very good accent on a great video hunt.  Thanks for sharing Zac.  I would love to come chase some Mulies some day in your part of the world but I don't think I would ever get drawn in Arizona being an out of stater. Lord's blessings to you Zac and keep sharing your stories.  I'll be watching.

    Love this Zac! Will you like my cousin's strip buck story? She is trying to win a contest with her 205" strip buck!
