Mule Deer


With an estimated 100,000 Mule Deer in New Mexico you can expect to possibly see in excess of 100 deer in a day. As the snow in Southern Colorado drives the deer south into Northern New Mexico the hunting gets even better with the rise in population. Mule Deer will range from 4,000 to over 9,000 feet in elevation. They will vary in weight from 150 to over 300 pounds and can sport antler from 100" to well over 200".

What to Expect

Every morning we will start out with a hearty breakfast before heading to the mountains to start glassing to try and locate a shooter buck. Once we have located we will get in position for a stalk or rifle shot. Once you have taken your buck we will take good quality pictures before packing him out.
