Limited Entry, Trophy Mule Deer Hunts
Oct. 1 -14
Our limited entry, early October mule deer hunts take place on large, private ranches in the high-country of South Central Wyoming, and area well known for producing monster mulies! This is our premier hunting opportunity for extreme trophy mule deer! This hunt is designed with the serious trophy deer hunter in mind, and limited to a maximum of eight hunters per season! We have been on a quality deer management plan for the past 20 years in this area! To qualify for harvest, a buck must meet our management requirements, consisting of a combination of factors including: ears width or wider, four points to a side or better, good mass and deep forks. In short, only big mature, trophy bucks are allowed to be harvested, typically bucks being 5 ½ years and older! Due to the ideal habitat, strong genetics and sound management of our area, our hunters consistently take older age class bucks averaging from 26 to 28 inches wide, scoring from the mid 160’s to high 180’s gross Boone and Crockett points or more! Our hard working guides and their hunters have also taken their share of monster mulies from 30 to 34 inches, typical and non-typical bucks, scoring from 190 to over 230 B&C points!
Over the years, hunter success rates have averaged better than 75%, and with perfect weather, some years have produced 100% harvest success! This special controlled harvest trophy hunt is not recommended for the casual hunter that feels he absolutely fill his tag before he can go home satisfied and happy! However, this hunt is definitely a tremendous opportunity for the serious trophy hunter that hopes to collect a potential world-class trophy mule deer! Trophy antelope may also be hunted in combination with our early October mule deer hunts! Please ask us for details about potential “management mule deer” hunting opportunities on select hunts!
