With less than 4% draw odds, Jess somehow pulls a coveted Nevada archery Mule Deer tag. Our focus for hunting season shifted to this tag immediately. A summer scouting trip with friends who knew the area gave us confidence by seeing nice bucks and we had a good starting point come season opener.

As August rolled around and 10 days allotted for this hunt, we headed south – finding target bucks the very first night. But, as big bucks do, they didn’t cooperate by either bedding in tough stalking terrain or not presenting shots as they left their beds that Jess stalked in on. After many days and multiple attempts to notch an out of state tag – dirty, dusty, sunburned, and tired Jess was able to hang her tag on one of the original bucks from the first night in Nevada.
