Muley Hunt '08




Whit and I decided that we needed to dust off the 'ol jeep and take her out into the hills. So we headed up behind diamond valley tuesday afternoon for a "jeep ride"...aka deer hunting. We found the bumpiest road we could find and proceeded with caution, well kinda.... whit was driving!!! Scary, I know! Anyway, we had seen quite a few mama muley's but no monster muley's and the day was almost over. Whit was cruising along as I stood in the back of the jeep, much better visibility from there, when I spotted this guy down off the road. Now we were hunting in some really thick cedar trees that had been burned a few years ago. I jumped out of the Jeep and fired off a quick shot as he was trotting away which I'm pretty sure missed cause he just kept trotting. The second shot was right on the money and he went down, shot through the heart... and you're to blame... baby... uh sorry I got carried away. Any hoo the short of the story is this, i finally shot a muley. After going out numerous times on my own and coming back empty handed I went for a "jeep ride" with whit and I killed a muley. She must be my good luck charm.
