Mule Deer Hunt
Our mule deer hunts are from a tent camp located
at about 8000ft located within the River of No
return wilderness of Idaho. This is a high country
hunt in rugged, physically demanding mountains
and river breaks. Due to its remoteness, this
area receives very little deer hunting pressure
and holds some very large bucks. We have harvested
bucks over 200” and taken both typical and
non typical deer. Although our MULE DEER SPECIFIC
hunts are free range, fair chase and we cannot
ever guarantee anything, we run nearly 100% success
with an average buck of around 150”. We
only take a maximum of two hunters at a time.
If you book a 1x1 you would be the only hunter
in camp. This area isn't the type of area where
you will see tons and tons of deer, however. We
spend many hours glassing, intermittently changing
will be hunting a huge area searching out pockets
of deer. When we find that big buck you may only
have one chance to harvest him. That being said
we do sometimes have multiple opportunities on
large and different bucks. This is the type of
mule deer hunt that you will have to work at and
would give you an adventure story to go along
with your deer. This is also a great hunt whether
you are a trophy hunter or are not real picky
and just looking for an expedition type experience
to share with a buddy.
will be packing in about 3 hrs to reach base camp.
Each day we will most likely be riding out in
the dark and returning in the dark. Some spiking
out may be done depending upon what we are seeing.
Good optics are a must if you would like to up
your odds of returning home with that big buck.
Another advantage you can give yourself is being
proficient at longer range shots. These hunts
are done from mid October through mid November
so be prepare for adverse weather. We start out
hunting bucks during the pre rut with some of
the bucks still in bachelor groups and end the
season hunting during some hard rutting action.
We don’t run any better success from beginning
to end. We just are looking in different areas.
