I have hunted with this outfitter each year for the past three years with incredible success. The three mule deer 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.
