Mule Deer Hunts in Colorado
Our mountain ranches are an incredible migratory destination for giant mountain mule deer. Most bucks live in the high country that surrounds our ranches and migrate down onto the lower sage flats to rut and winter every year. This is a wild, fair chase hunt and the bucks, which are extremely hard to hunt early in the year, become very hunt-able in mid to late November as they descend on the doe groups that live in the willow bottoms and timber fringes lining the valley floor close to the hunting ranch. We never know exactly what is going to show up, but we know that there will be some giants which makes the hunt incredibly exciting. Expectations for our late season hunts are bucks scoring north of 180″ with possibilities of 190-200+”. Huge mass, dark antlers, big square heads make these mountain mulies worthy of anyone willing to brave the snow and cold to put their tag on one of these majestic giants!
These hunts can be booked alone or in combination with one of our rifle elk hunts.
We are hunting migrating bucks in the rut, so we never know what is going to show up, but if the snow and weather is right, be prepared to see mature bucks in the 180+ class. Our goal is to harvest mature bucks with a minimum score of 180 or minimum age of 6.5.
This is not a hunt where you will see a high number of deer, however, the bucks you will see will be mature and huge in both antlers and body. Although we cover a lot of ground on these hunts, we also use heated blinds in proven spots where you will be overlooking open sage and dark timber/aspen patches which the deer use for cover and feed during their migration to winter grounds. This hunt is very dependent upon cold and lots of snow in the high country which pushes mature bucks to their winter grounds.
Eastern Plains Hunts
We are hunting the Eastern Plains of Colorado for huge Mule Deer and Whitetail Deer. We target mature bucks scoring in the 190"+ with a real possibility at 200+" for Mule Deer, and 160+" for our Whitetail Deer Bucks. This hunt will find you spending alot of time in the truck looking for our targeted mule deer bucks, and using elevated Red Neck Box Blinds located between agricultural fields and bedding areas, along with spot and stalk in some of the most challenging Whitetail ground you will ever hunt.
We take a very limited number of clients on both our Mountain and Eastern Plains Hunts so the pressure is light, and genetics are incredible!
