Like many of you, the first deer I ever killed was a whitetail. The reason is simple: Most of us live in whitetail country. Mule deer dominate the landscape in my current home state of Wyoming. Whitetails abound as well, but you have to hunt in the specific zones they inhabit to find success. That’s why, for the past several years, my son, Cole, has proudly tagged only mule deer. He changed that recently when I joined him briefly for a hunt during one of Wyoming’s November whitetail seasons.
