Mountain Mule Deer Hunts
There are few rewards in hunting that can compare to the thrill of taking a mature mountain mule deer buck. Our area is home to some of the most impressive mule deer in the northwest. Experience the thrill as you glass the basins and suddenly the buck of a lifetime appears. Find out what so many hunters are dying to know about the whitetail's "big brother".
During the general rifle season, we find the mule deer browsing in the open side hills and brush fields of the higher elevations. These are most often the same areas we hunt for elk. It is common to be glassing these areas and see both mule deer and elk in the same canyon. Many hunters who purchase the deer / elk combination license prefer to concentrate their efforts on elk, but a mature muley buck is always a target of opportunity. The mule deer rut here usually takes place earlier than the whitetail rut. If you are looking to score on a rutted up old muley, you might consider booking your hunt for late October or early November.
