Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

I love stalking deer with archery gear. Never touched one though. I've been blessed with some pretty awesome stalks. It's amazing what you can do if you take your time go slow.

As a guy that's stalked bedded mule deer and whitetail to within bow range I'll believe that video is 100% legit. And getting within 30 yds of a bedded mature buck isn't easy no matter what species he is.

.... within bow range ? I agree and have done that myself, but only with whitetails, never been out west.
OK, grabbing the antler, giving it a shake, deer not responding, reaching in again and grabbing the horn for a second jiggle ? ... only then getting the deer to respond ????
100% legit ? ? cmon man crazy
May be a muley thing, never realized they were that tame.

Yes ... a pet.
and ... no, not an eastern whitetail.
I've heard muleys were easy, but wouldn't have thought they were that ..... lax.

We walked up on a coyote sleeping by a brush pile out calling on a real windy day. We thought it was dead. It woke up just like our dogs. Took a second or two to get it's witts about it.

Only thing I want to say is that stalking where you have concealment like stalks, tall grass is MUCH easier than what most of my woodland bros are used to. With our Eastern herd, one wrong step on a stick break and you are on hold for 20 minutes because of how easy they spook.

With the Eastern and Southern woodlands, you must go from tree to tree, and stay very low. You will at times have to low crawl and even then, on flat land around 25 yards is the closest. If you are able to stalk them over a hill, you can low crawl to about 10 yards. After the leaves fall, forget all of that, unless it rains, maybe others who have tried it with snow can speak up.

(whitetail) Deer rest, they don't sleep to where you have to shake them (twice) to wake them up.
They also have a good nose. See that he is downwind of his blind spot ? Stalker and camera man as close as 3 feet up wind ?
A whitetail can smell your finger print on a strand of barbed wire.
You can cover your scent to an extent.
Maybe it is just a muley thing, but you ain't gonna get away with that on a Virginia whitetail. IMO
I'm not convinced.
Cheers
