Mule Deer in the wild can reach a weight of up to 250 pounds. Able to leap up to ten feet
in the air while running, they can reach speeds of 40 miles per hour and change directions
on a dime. Bucks normally begin antler development and growth, largely dependant on the
genetics, nutrition and age of the deer, in February or March and continue until mid to late August.
During spring and summer, antlers are growing at an awesome rate, with large bucks gaining mass at a
rate of up to a quarter of an inch per day.
Mule Deer hunting in Montana may be one of the most exhilarating hunts that we offer. Whether you are
hunting with archery equipment or a gun, we use a wide variety of tactics to get you close to your trophy.
We also will use spot and stalking for archery and gun hunts during the day. Evening hunts, especially
archery hunts, have even seen us utilizing whitetail tactics through placement of tree stands near food
plots and travel corridors. By far, most professional hunters will tell you that the toughest trophy to
collect with archery equipment is a mature "Mulie" buck. Our clients usually experience several stalks
per day on P&Y class animals. Our mule deer gun hunts are probably one of our best hunts with most of
our clients taking deer in the 20-24 inch range. Our success rate is 100% on this hunt.
