On this episode of The Western Rookie Dan talks with New Mexico mule deer fanatic Marcus Placencia about the challenges of hunting mature mule deer in the deserts of the southwest.
Marcus is a lifelong New Mexico resident that is obsessed with mule deer hunting. Marcus has been chasing animals in “the land of enchantment” since he was 8 years old. His first kill was a cow elk with his bow at age 12 and he’s been hooked on bow hunting ever since. Marcus has recently expanded his mule deer hunting into Arizona and is hopeful to start drawing tags and chasing bucks in many more states. Dan and Marcus discuss the vast differences between hunting whitetails in the midwest and chasing mule deer in the southwest. Dan and Marcus discuss possible hunt swaps between Missouri and New Mexico.
