I’ve never been a big hunter.  But growing up I loved the hunting TRIPS.  Every fall my Dad and I (and eventually my brother Jaren) would embark on a great Eastern Oregon Safari in search of the Holy Grail of hunting locations.  After purchasing nearly a two week supply (for a 4-day trip) of Twinkies, Doritos, jerky, and soda pop we would leave the lush greenscapes of western Oregon and travel roughly 7 hours to the eastern mule deer country.  After a number of years trying different areas with varying degrees of success, we stumbled upon a stretch of turf not too far from Burns, Oregon.  It was rough and canyon pocked.  But for whatever reason the deer loved to hang out there.  Most of the deer were bucks so we appropriately dubbed the area…Buck Hotel.  Buck Hotel was no ordinary mule deer territory.  The journey to Buck Hotel was arduous, parking the van along the canyon road and then traversing, scrambling, and navigating up sage covered canyon walls to the rim rocks below the desert plateau.  Typically it was hot and dusty producing ample amounts of sweat on the giblets.  October 1988 was our second trip to the area.  After waking up early (never my favorite thing) we pressed into the heart of Buck Hotel.  We saw all the typical ‘sign’ (deer beds, poo poo, etc) but no deer.  We decided to pop up and walk the plateau.  We hadn’t seen any deer so I somewhat lazily slung my rifle over my head and shoulder.   We spooked a deer soon after cresting on the plateau.  It was probably 100 yards away and my first impression was “It’s a doe”.  I didn’t even unsling the rifle.  My dad, however, took aim through his scope and quickly contested my claim that a large 3-point mulie was now in fast retreat.  I quickly set off in hot pursuit.  The deer dropped into a small depression out of site.  I dropped to my knee and took aim at the far side of the depression in hopes that he might emerge on the other side.  That deer, at speed, hoofed to the top of the depression and then stop and exposed his broadside to me.  I squeezed off a single round and dropped him at almost 100 yards.  I like to think it was my marksmanship that bagged my first buck, but I know better.  I got lucky.  I had the prize and great memories.

Somehow, the story lost the six rounds fired at that buck BEFORE your marksmanship kicked in...five of which were mine with most at less than 50 yards in wide open country. We were laughing so hard we could not have hit the Hulk standing right in fr
