Do mule deer stick in the same place like WT, or do they roam to summer ground and not return to same area? What I am wondering, is passing good young bucks gonna benefit in years to come?

I would think that if there is a food source and water they will stay in the same area. They range further than WT. The mulies around the Palo Duro canyon area will travel 2 miles to a wheat field.

Depends on Summer time elevation I believe. Here In Texas I think they are pretty reliable year round, at least the couple places I have hunted them. In the Rocky States, they migrate for winter.

We have a decent size place, low pressure, and a couple of wheat fields. For as water, plenty of windmills and a few tanks that generally hold water. We have passed a lot of good young muleys over the past few years. We should see 4 or 5 mature bucks a year, but we are not. Just trying to figure out why.

We found that the mulies in the Palo Duro canyon didn't start rutting until until the middle of December which is a couple of weeks after the season. The big boys came out of the wood work ( canyons ) and were dumber than dirt with love. Heard they keep season like this so the wardens can work deer season then peasant season. Look at your lease in middle-late December.
