Mule deer hunts are for rifle hunters. Hunting is conducted on large private ranches in Montana where we can manage for quality trophy animals. Mule deer can be hunted separately as a stand-alone hunt or can be added on to an elk hunt. The average deer killed on all properties is 5 years of age and on our best property we maintain a 160-180 gross B&C average. Hunter success is very high. Elk and antelope can be harvested at some ranches on a trophy fee basis.
