Welcome to Muley Monday of The Rich Outdoors. Today we have one of the most under the radar killers out there. I think we say that a lot but I am pumped to chat with Scott because, in my opinion, Scott is one of the most Dynamic Mule deer hunters in the woods. It doesn’t seem to matter what weapon, what terrain, or what time of year Scott pulls buck after buck off the mountain or flats. In this episode Scott shares some great hunting stories and what separates him from the average hunter. Like most under the radar guys, Scott is almost too humble to tell you but we pull out some really good tips. I know I pulled a few things I hadn’t thought of out of the conversation. This was a great podcast for me as I think it re-affirms a few things that I needed fresh in the memory bank as I head off to find a buck at the tail of a hard storm.
