Video: Hunting Nevada High Country Mule Deer


Some more public land rifle hunting action from Randy Newberg!

From Newberg:

“Randy Newberg, Matthew Newberg, Mike Spitzer, and Scott Jones continue this public land Nevada mule deer hunt. With Matthew now in camp, all three tag holders are ready to get serious about this hunt. Three days remain, with the rut picking up and the weather stabilizing. Now, it is hopefully a matter of getting enough optics on the mountain to find the kind of bucks this unit is known for. Matthew took a fine buck earlier in this day, leaving Randy and Mike to start focusing on filling their tags. While driving to a trailhead, Randy finds a group of deer with an old nasty buck tearing up the sage. Exactly what he was looking for. Mike and Randy decide to head up the mountain and try to get a chance at the buck. When the buck runs north, Mike sprints ahead to cut off the buck and his does, chasing them back south where Randy is waiting with his rifle and Marcus with his camera. A chaotic encounter results in Randy taking one of the more memorable bucks of his hunting days.”

Video: Hunting Mule Deer on Public Land in Nevada


Public land rifle hunting in Nevada for muleys with Randy Newberg.

From Newberg:

“Randy Newberg, Matthew Newberg, Mike Spitzer, and Scott Jones continue this public land Nevada mule deer hunt. With Matthew now in camp, all three tag holders are ready to get serious about this hunt. Three days remain, with the rut picking up and the weather stabilizing. Now, it is hopefully a matter of getting enough optics on the mountain to find the kind of bucks this unit is known for. On this morning, a good buck is spotted, causing Matthew to think it might be worth his time and effort. Mike and Scott stay back and glass, while Matthew and Randy drag the cameraman (Marcus) through the service berries and up the mountain in pursuit of this nice mule deer. Randy’s political dreams are dashed as he lands in a cactus and has to strip down to his skivies, which he put on backwards that morning while getting dressed in the early morning darkness.”

Big Nevada antelope are in the sights in a video from Hushin, and it all comes together quite well. Not only are antelope a tough game to tag, but a trophy can make the hunt even more rewarding.

Wildlife Habitat Protected, Access Improved in Nevada

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation worked with a conservation-minded landowner, the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) and the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to protect 4,500 acres of key wildlife habitat in northeast Nevada via a voluntary conservation easement agreement. The project also improves access to nearly 19,000 acres of adjacent public land.

“We appreciate Bryan Masini and his partner owners of the Wildhorse Ranch in recognizing the importance of protecting and conserving the wildlife values of their land,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer.

Located approximately 70 miles north of Elko, the property lies within the Owyhee River watershed just east of the Independence Mountain Range.

As part of the transaction, the NDOW holds an access agreement that allows public access for hunting and other recreational activities to the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands which border the ranch.

“We are grateful for all the partners in this effort and find great hope in innovative approaches such as this conservation easement,” said Tony Wasley, NDOW director. “This is a great solution that protects private land, while also maintaining the land’s benefits for the wildlife species that depend on it.”

“This specific area is year-round habitat and crucial summer range for up to 100 elk. It’s also a key area for mule deer and antelope, crucial habitat for Greater sage-grouse and it features riparian habitat for fish and other species,” added Henning.

Current range conditions consist of enough forage for cattle and wildlife and a plan has been implemented to ensure that best management practices maintain quality habitat going forward.

“This project is a great example of the private and public partnership efforts that exist to protect critical habitats and preserve agricultural working lands for future generations,” stated Ray Dotson, NRCS state conservationist.

The Natural Resource Conservation Service’s Agricultural Conservation Easement Program and the Nevada Department of Wildlife provided funding for the project.

 

About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

Founded over 30 years ago, fueled by hunters and a membership of more than 220,000 strong, RMEF has conserved more than 7.1 million acres for elk and other wildlife. RMEF also works to open and improve public access, fund and advocate for science-based resource management, and ensure the future of America’s hunting heritage.

Video: Bowhunting Nevada Bull Elk


Big bull elk in Nevada are pursued in a video from Team Backcountry.

From Team Backcountry:

“September is what we live for! After drawing a coveted Nevada archery elk tag, the hunt wasn’t panning out as we expected it too. The bulls were sticking to the timber and rarely leaving the thick cover. Our only chance of finding a big, mature bull was to head into the timber after them and hope for a close encounter.”
