    Out glassing for some pigs when my buddy spotted a 5point mule chasing some does on the hill next to where we were sitting. he spotted us but was more concerned with the doe. we crept down to the water hole at the base of the hill, which the deer did not like. what followed was a 6 hour stare down before he decided to bed down under a juniper with a doe. I got about 30yds from him, but before I was able to see him over the tops of the desert foilage, he bolted. Just glad I was able to show enough patient....6 hours worth.

    I was lucky. since I was about 300 yds away from the buck, I was able to sneak down off my hill and go hide in a wash overlooking the water holewhile my buddy kept glassing him. my friend is the one with the real patience, as I was relaxing in a wash, he was stuck standing almost the entire time.
