Trophy Mule Deer

You've come to the right place for your next Mule Deer Hunt!
Trophy Mule Deer hunts are conducted  in far west Texas also known as the Trans Pecos and Big Bend regions. Our ranches vary greatly
 in size from 40,000+ acres to a  couple thousand acres which allows us to offer hunts in all price ranges to our clients. Several of our
properties offer easy access off of main roads but more are off the beaten path in remote scenic regions of Texas. Rifle Mule deer season in
west Texas starts the Friday after Thanksgiving and runs for roughly 2 weeks long offering 3 weekends of hunting.
 Archery season generally runs the entire month of October.

Typically 1 hunt is conducted on each ranch per weekend unless the property is season leased. Due to a short season with the weather and moon
playing a large factor in hunter success most ranches are available to season lease rather than a guided hunt to allow hunters more time to be
successful. Please take moon phases into consideration when booking a hunt, recommended dates will be gladly given to you.

Mule deer are curious animals when  not pressured allowing hunters to usually get within 300 yards for a shot, terrain will be your biggest factor.
 Terrain varies from gently rolling hills, to steep canyons, bluffs,  to wide open fields.
Expect rocky terrain filled with plenty of cactus and desert plant life typical of west Texas.
A minimum of a .270 caliber or similar rifle/pistol is highly encouraged  and a good pair of 10X to 12X binoculars. Most mule deer hunts will be
over water, feed, or driving and glassing long distances then stalking closer to make the shot. A comfortable pair of boots and a day pack is recommended as we
spend most of the day out in the field to cover as much ground as possible. Our guided mule deer hunts on all ranches combined averaged 85% success and
self guided hunts 65% success. Deer population and trophy quality vary from ranch to ranch and we have priced our hunts accordingly.
Non resident hunters will need to purchase the Type 105 General Non Resident Hunting license which is $315.00 over the counter, Resident hunters
 will need to purchase the Type 101 Resident Hunting license which is $25.00 over the counter.
We Welcome Archery Hunters for General or Archery Season Hunts.
