Desert Mule Deer
Desert Mule Deer Hunting in Mexico
Desert Mule Deer hunting in Mexico is excellent and you do not have to wait to be drawn for a tag. We hunt these muleys in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico about three hours WSW of Chihuahua City on leases of over 80,000 acres. To be honest, the Chihuahuan Muley generally scores a bit less than those from Sonora, but ours are some of the biggest in Chihuahua and generally speaking stand up pretty well to the Sonora bucks. Most of this land is between 6,000 and 7,500 ft. elevation in the Western Sierra Madre Mountains where we have excellent populations of Desert Muleys and Coues Deer. The rut kicks in later than in the US and you will find the best time to come is normally in January.
Your hunting accommodations will be in one of several 2BR / 1 or 2 Bath ranch houses scattered around our hunting leases. There is plenty of hot water for your shower and each of the houses are clean and comfortable. Our cook is a culinary school graduate and prepares meals of international cuisine. And don’t forget the clean, crisp mountain air. You should be in pretty decent shape for this hunt simply due to the higher elevation and you will likely do quite a bit of walking as some of the areas we hunt are down in the canyons and others are up on the plateaus.
We limit our Desert Mule Deer hunts to four hunters and offer five full days of hunting. Most of these bucks score between 160 and 180, but occasionally, a monster will step out in front of us and you will be very happy to note that we do not have any trophy fees associated with this hunt.
This hunt is priced at $4,950 and has been 100% successful for the past 10 years. If you would also like to hunt a Coues Deer, we offer a combo hunt for $8,500. Our success rate for this combo hunt is over 70%.
You should make your travel arrangements to fly into the International airport at Chihuahua City, MX (airport code CUU) capital of the state of Chihuahua. We will pick you up at the airport there and provide transportation to the ranch where your hunt will be conducted. At the end of your hunt, we will transport you back to the airport in Chihuahua City. As an alternate, you may fly or drive to El Paso, TX (airport code ELP) and we can provide the same pickup/drop-off service for you up at the airport there. When driving to El Paso, parking in the Long-Term Lot at the airport is only $5/day and is a very safe place to leave your vehicle. If you need any assistance in making your travel arrangements, please let me know and I will be happy to assist you.
When you come to Mexico to hunt the Desert Mule Deer with us, we will provide transportation to/from the airport in Chihuahua City, lodging, meals, hunting license, tag(s), use of our rifle and ammo, USDA approved preparation of your trophy and all documentation necessary to bring your trophy back into the US with you. Our hunts are fully guided 1:1 and may be customized to meet your needs. If you want to bring you own gun, the permit fee is $350 and allows you to bring in up to two guns with a maximum of 100 rounds of ammo for each gun. Please allow at least two months to process the permit.
