Daniel Bauer of Lincoln, NE thoroughly enjoys Nebraska’s muzzleloader deer hunting season that opened today and runs through the entire month of December. I and my sons do as well!

Daniel says there’s always a good carryover of deer from the firearm season (especially this year), there’s still good deer movement with breeding taking place, there’s little to no hunting pressure in most places, there’s great chances of seeing all kinds of wildlife and around Christmas there’s an excellent opportunity to plan a hunt with family and friends. I couldn’t agree more!

Now, how much does Daniel enjoy the muzzleloader deer hunting season in Nebraska? Well enough to have bagged this nice, good-bodied mule deer buck while still-hunting in sub-zero, blizzard-like conditions in the canyon country near Valentine last year. Look at the pic! You’re a tough dude, Daniel! 

I wonder where his father was at the time this Mulie buck was shot, hmmm. Was he back at the cabin in front of the wood-burning stove, nah! He was probably out fishing somewhere. After all, his father is – DARYL BAUER of the Game and Parks Commission’s Fisheries Division. He has the other blog on our Game and Parks website, entitled: “Daryl Bauer’s Barbs & Backlashes” at:

Now, GO FISH, woops, I mean GO HUNT.
