Mountain Mule Deer:
We access our Mule deer country on horseback and foot. We will ride up to the higher elevations on horseback each morning before first light and once on top we will spend the day hiking and glassing the ridges, slides and canyons below till its time to put a stalk on one. We also have several other locations that we actually can drive to the top and hike right from the trail head.
The genetics and quality of Mule Deer in this country will be in the 24"-28" range and heavy beamed with an excellent opportunity for bigger if you have the will power to hold out. Their live weights will tip the scales well over 200#.
Unlike other areas Mule Deer in this area have rebounded. Mule deer numbers have been on a steady increase according to FWP status and surveys for the past 10 years. According to FWP more and more Boone and Crockett bucks are being harvested and checked in each year. This is one of the few states you get to hunt Mule Deer during the rut! November proves to be the best time to hunt one of the mountains toughest advisories.
