White-tail deer are often plentiful on the landscape. Even in areas that contain mostly elk and mule deer, whitetail often have a presence. We manage these animals for older age classes the same as our elk and mule deer. White-tail can be hunted separately as a stand-alone hunt or can be added on to an elk hunt. Success is 100% with most deer scoring 130-145 gross B&C with the largest bucks scoring 160-170 gross B&C.
