I have hunted with this outfitter each year for the past three years with incredible success. The three bucks I have taken with him were a 187″ buck with 45″ of mass, a giant buck scoring 203″, and a beautiful 195″ typical. The quality of this hunt is unbeatable, both in terms of trophy animals and knowledgeable, friendly guides.
This outfitter conducts his Mule Deer Hunts in several segments of the season. His early archery dates are September 1st through September 5th.

Most hunting is done by spot and stalk. Some hunting is done over waterholes, from blinds, and occasionally, tree stands are used. Weapons allowed by this outfitter include archery gear, rifles, and handguns.

Last year’s opportunity and success rates were both 100%. This outfitter has a ton of great bucks, and his average trophy mule deer during the general season scores 170″, while his average rut-hunt mule deer scores 180″ B&C.
All necessary field care of your trophy (cleaning, caping, and quartering) will be taken care of and included on this hunt. For meat processing and taxidermy work, this outfitter can recommend some great options and put you in contact with them.

For the primary hunting area, the easiest travel arrangement to make is to fly into Denver International Airport (DEN) and rent a car. It is a 3.5 hour drive to the private ranch where you will be hunting. Private aircrafts can be easily accommodated by the Raton Municipal Airport, which has a 6000 ft runway. In the event that you’re hunting the ranch near Bloxom, NM, the best airport to fly into is in Albuquerque (ABQ). The drive from there is 3 hours.
