TEPID — A Colorado 3rd Season Mule Deer Hunt


TEPID

adjective  | tep·id  | ˈte-ped

1: moderately warm : lukewarm : slightly warm
"the weather was tepid"
2: showing little enthusiasm
"the rut was tepid"
 


TEPID takes you on a very difficult 3rd season Colorado mule deer hunt with goHUNT's Dennis Lee and Lorenzo Sartini. 2016 was the year everyone was waiting for. People had saved up their points and hunters had high hopes about the 3rd season dates for mule deer.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans... with an abnormally warm 3rd season, they had to dig deep in order to find a quality buck. Multiple run-ins with other hunters and warm weather made this a difficult hunt to remember.

Great video. I felt like I was there with the guy trying to control my breathing on that buck that someone else shot at first.

@Silas D.

Thanks for watching!

The equipment setup we were using (my gun), is a Browning Xbolt Hells canyon speed rifle in the 26 nosler caliber shooting the Nosler long range 129gr bullet at about 3400FPS at the muzzle. its an unreal shooter for western hunting. super flat.

The optic is the Vortex Viper PST 6-24X50 with the MOA reticle. It runs super well with the 26 caliber for hold over.

If you have any other questions let me know.

thanks!

Lorenzo, What tri-pod are you using? It looks pretty stable for how high it is set. How much do they usually run?

Very enjoyable for an experienced New Zealand hunter. I spend huge time after wild Fallow bucks, mostly with a camera. They are a grass loving deer so favour moderate hill country which has cover in the gullies and some ridge tops. I see real similarity to this mule deer country. Thank you for the video.

@ Brandon S. -

First off, sorry for the delayed response.

I am using the Bogen 055 X PRO3 tripod and I absolutely love it. They run about $240 without the head. On mine I was running the Outdoorsmans Pan Head.

If you have any other questions let me know.

thanks,
Lorenzo
