2007 New Mexico Late Season Mule Deer Hunt Summary
In January 2007, our New Mexico
outfitter had two archery mule deer hunters semiguided.
The hunters saw close too a hundred bucks and passed on
several the first few days and again on the last day in
hopes of getting a real trophy. One hunter wounded but
wasn't able to recover a huge nontypical buck. The ranch
is 6,000-acres and is some really good mule deer hunting
with the average shot being forty yards. We hunt from
ground blinds and spot and stalk. I have a house set up
for the hunters to stay in and they fly into ElPaso, Tx.
Price of hunt in 2008 is $2200 2 on 1 and $2950 1 on 1.
The hunters who were there in 07 both said it was one of
the best trips they had ever been on and would be back
again. The license is over the counter and is $270.00. I
have several hunters coming for this hunt in 08 and the
season starts Jan 1-15. Six day hunts during that time
frame which is during the rut. It's a great late season
For those of you who apply for AZ elk
(everyone should), just wanted to let you know the
application deadline is much earlier this year - Feb.
13, 2007. You can apply online at
www.azgfd.com . In
AZ, you can accumulate bonus points each year you apply
for a license and don't draw. But you need to buy a
nonresident small game license for $151.25 (highway
robbery if you ask me) to get the bonus point. AZ is
well worth putting in for though. I have drawn 3 times
and had fantastic hunts. The bulls are just huge! If you
want recommendations on which units to put in for,
please email me.
The application deadline in Wyoming is
March 15 for antelope and deer. Wyoming has a new
preference point system so you'll want to build those
points up if nothing else. We have excellent mule deer
(160-200 class) and antelope hunts (75-84 inches) in WY
and still have a few openings. But you would need to put
in the draw for both. The deer draw is almost 100% and
the antelope about 60% without points.
In Montana, the deadline for elk and deer
is also March 15 if you apply through an outfitter, you
are guaranteed a license. But again you still need to
put in for the drawing and we can help you apply. We
have 3 excellent outfitters we book for there for elk,
mule deer, whitetails, antelope and turkeys. The
outfitters are located in NW, SW, and eastern MT. Bull
elk from 280-400, mule deer from 150-190, whitetails
from 130-170, and antelope from 70-85 with excellent
numbers of each. Archery antelope licenses are available
over the counter.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
