Roy took my friend and I out to look for a nice muley buck. We spotted several doe while glassing at first until we moved to a back canyon. Roy spotted a nice buck traveling with a doe. Before I could get a round chambered to take a shot, they disappeared over the canyon wall. I took my first hike in the thin air to go after them. While huffing and puffing I was able to keep up with Roy on the chase. We moved up to the rim only to find the deer were not in sight. We opted to work our way down the canyon in hopes of having the deer come out to my buddy at the bottom but to no avail - they had gone up the canyon and over the top. Nonetheless, I enjoyed walking through the sage and getting my first taste of big country hiking.
