The area we hunt is famous for and offers some of the best Trophy Mule Deer hunting in the world.
This region of western Wyoming has all the ingredients for growing trophy class bucks: genetics, ample vegetation, high mountain basins, natural winter range and the necessary cover and hidey-holes that allow bucks to reach their maturity.
Much of the area in which these trophy bucks live is also very remote and rugged. We encourage each hunter to prepare physically, increasing the opportunity of harvesting a trophy class deer. Each morning you and your guide will ride horseback well before daylight to the desired hunting area for that day. From here a good part of our hunting will be done on foot. We spend much of the day moving from various vantage points glassing the valleys and hillsides for that trophy buck of a lifetime. Spot and stalk is our most effective method for taking trophy bucks. Rifle season begins Sept. 15 and goes through Oct. 5. This gives you the chance to hunt these monster bucks in the high mountain basins that they call home.
The 2012 deer season was the one to go home with a buck that everyone comes to Wyoming looking for. A light winter and early spring gave western Wyoming bucks a huge jump on horn growth and it showed this fall. Our scouting paid off and we were able to connect on several awesome bucks but it was also the year of “the big one that got away”. We had 2 bucks that were both as big a deer as we have ever had the privilege of hunting get away. One was missed several times opening morning the other was unfortunately wounded, but hopefully lived as he was spotted 10 days later in elk season. Several other real nice bucks were seen or stalked but luck was on their side and they made it for another season. For those fortunate to make their shots count it was one heck of a great year.
