What states can you hunt mule deer in velvet? Also what are the tags like? I read on an outfitters website in Utah that their private land is direct purchase tags. So that’s obviously a nice deal. I don’t really want to to put in on a tag for 5-10 years just to draw a tag. I’m not opposed to it, there are just other things I would rather put in for with my money (Appalachian elk, or save for a big trip). Also I want to get out and do a diy backcountry hunt. I really don’t care about trophy size I just want to go out and do it for the experience. So any suggestions there would be nice. I’m planning a Nebraska Muley hunt for this fall, idk how “backcountry” it will be but I’ll probably camp out at least.
