We have over 300,000 contiguous acres of some of the best free range ranches in Sonora to hunt Mule Deer, Coues Whitetail, and Desert Bighorn Sheep. These ranches produce world class trophies of all three species and have some the most unique genetics in all of Mexico!! Due to the coastal location of our ranches, the horns on our deer are very dark and can be almost black. This is caused by the type of desert vegetation that grows close to the Gulf of California. All of our ranches are located within 30 miles of the coast. We have a supplemental feed and watering program on all of our ranches. We currently have 50 different feed and watering locations where we free feed protein and various other supplements along with year round water.
If you are looking to hunt free range mule deer that are 190-200″+ then we have the ranches you need to be hunting. These ranches have produced multiple bucks that go 215″+ in the past and each year we continue to have sightings and opportunities at bucks of that caliber. Our management strategy on these ranches is to only harvest older age class deer and maintain a minimum score of 185″ depending on age class. We hunt these deer with a combination of methods that include Spot and stalk, glassing, and high racking. Hunters that choose to come in early December during the pre-rut are able to hunt bucks we have patterned on our feeders and drinkers. These patterned bucks can be hunted with rifle or bow. The rut normally starts around Christmas and goes strong until the end of January. This is a great time to hunt because the deer are constantly moving and a “Muy Grande” can appear at anytime and anywhere. Sometimes we are able to hunt an extended season for the first two weeks of February during the post rut. This is a great time to kill a tired rutted out buck that is hitting one of our feeders.
Our Coues Whitetail have some of the best genetics in the World!! The average score on our bucks is 112-115″ with multiple 120″+ bucks being killed on these ranches in the past. These ranches have very low densities of Coues, however, the deer that do inhabit these properties are big!! These deer can be hunted successfully with a rifle or bow in early December off of feeders and drinkers. Glassing and spot and stalk can also be effective during this pre-rut time of the year because the bucks tend to bed on higher elevation areas of our ranches and make themselves easy targets. The rut normally kicks in the first week of January and runs through the end of January and sometimes into the first week of February. This is a great time to sit behind the glass and find a giant “Grey Ghost” that is cruising looking for Does.
Our free range Desert Bighorn Sheep hunts are something every hunter should experience. We get very limited tags for our ranches and hunters can expect to kill rams that go 155″-170″+. These hunts are 100% kill and they are free range and fair chase hunts. All of our Rams get CITES permits and are importable into the U.S. These hunts are more physical than our deer hunts because of the steep terrain that the Sheep tend to favor. Hunters are asked to be in good physical shape prior to coming on this hunt. These hunts can be done with a rifle or bow and have flexible dates December through March.
All of our hunts are guided by at least one English speaking guide and your driver to and from the airport is also bi-lingual. The accommodations on these hunts are very comfortable with all modern amenities provided. The food and hospitality is absolutely amazing and it will be one of the best hunting experiences you will ever have because of those two things. All of our ranches are contiguous and located within 50 miles of the town of Puerto Libertad in the state of Sonora. Our location is 2.5 hours northwest of Hermosillo and 5.5 hours straight south of Phoenix, AZ. We provide transportation to and from the Hermosillo airport and ask that all hunters arrive and depart from that location. Hunters can bring their own rifles as long as we are given advanced notice so we can obtain the proper permits. We do have a limited number of custom long range rifles available on our ranches for use by our hunters who do not wish to bring their own firearms.
Safety is our number one priority during these hunts!! Unfortunately, Mexico has received a lot of “fake news” and bad press over safety. The fact of the matter is that you are most likely safer on a trip with us in Sonora than you are in any major city in the U.S. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time can happen in any country and is an unfortunate circumstance of the world we live. You will find that the people of Mexico are friendly and very hospitable to you as an American. Just remember that there are thousands of American hunters that travel to Mexico each year to hunt. We will go above and beyond during your hunt to make sure you have more safety and security than you have here in your own country.
