Booking Mule Deer Hunts
Our New Mexico Mule Deer Hunting takes place on private and public lands in Unit 12 which located in western New Mexico; and our main method of hunting is spot-and-stalk. This unit is not necessarily known for high numbers of mule deer, but more for the massive size of the bucks. We generally locate bucks that score 180-200+” and we have a success rate of 50% with a 190” average.
We hunt high desert terrain in thick Pinyon pine and Juniper thickets approximately 6000-7500 ft. in elevation. Our mule deer hunts are moderately physically demanding as we typically drive to the general vicinity of where we will hunt, and then travel on foot from that point. Hunters should expect to walk 1-5 miles per day across fairly flat terrain. The only difficult hiking we sometimes encounter is when getting into position atop high points to glass.
Hunters who are flying should arrive in Albuquerque the day prior to their scheduled hunt. Airport pickup is available for an additional $400/per hunter. Hunters who provide their own transportation to camp are advised to arrive no earlier than noon on the day prior to the start of their hunt. Directions to our camp will be provided to all hunters using their own transportation.
Hunters must bring all hunting equipment needed for the duration of the hunt. We do not provide any weapons, optics, clothing, packs, or hunting gear for clients. We do provide qualified guides, transportation during the hunt, food, lodging, and basic necessities.
The weather in New Mexico varies significantly with temperatures ranging from 0-80 degrees. There is always a chance of rain during the September hunts and temperatures will range from 20-80 degrees depending on how late your hunt is scheduled. October is usually a dry month; however we do have an occasional storm and may even see a dusting of snow.
Accommodations and Trophy Care
Our hunters stay at our lodge which is located in the heart of Unit 12 and offers all modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi, satellite TV, washer/dryer, full baths, etc. We provide all of the food, water, and snacks that you will need for your entire hunt. We do not provide liquor or beer; however we do allow hunters to bring whatever they would like into camp.
We take great care to cape your trophy and prepare it for your travel home. We will provide you transportation from the field to our recommended meat processor to ensure that your animal gets to the facility quickly, or you may simply use the BMO processing facility at our lodge. Hunters are responsible for all meat processing and shipping costs.
We look forward to with the New Mexico Mule Deer Hunting trip of a lifetime!
