Hunting rutting whitetails in the wilderness seemed like a great way to introduce our stock to hunting in the west. After years of training our young green mules, it was finally time to take them on a hunt. We love where we live and hunt in our home state of Idaho, but most of the country we travel on foot is far from inviting to green stock and novice packers. Instead we wanted to start out by taking our mules into welcoming terrain in hopes of making the process a positive experience for everyone involved. The hunt ended up exceeding our expectations and we couldn’t have been more surprised by the whitetail bucks we ended up harvesting.
