This ranch only offers 10 mule deer bucks each year so that the trophy quality stays high and the hunting pressure remains low. They have been 100% success on all of their rifle trophy hunts because of their great management practices.  This is a rifle hunt only.

This is a 6 night/5 full day hunt.

This is a classic western spot & stalk style hunt combined with cruising the ranch roads and glassing areas. There is a variety of landscape along with some heavy brush and good cover.

Realistic expectations for this hunt are bucks in the 170-190 gross SCI range with the definite possibility to find a bigger one. In 2018 they took a 180, 185, 195 and a 200 gross SCI. Their best was a 215 gross SCI.

You will need to plan this trip a year or two in advance to have the best hope of availability unless cancellations occur.

GREAT NEWS! The price of the landowner voucher (which replaces the need for preference points) is included in the hunt price. These are a draw as well but our outfitter has been 100% successful drawing all needed vouchers in the past. Voucher draw results are announced in late June.

Even with the landowner voucher, you are still required to buy the NR mule deer license  & Habitat Stamp in addition to the included voucher.
