"Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up, as did men of another age, to the challenge of nature. In the hills and on the water the character of a man comes out." Abram T. Collier
Trophy Mule Deer
Colorado Mule Deer $5500
Lone Star Outfitters has harvested 12 mule deer bucks on our ranch in Colorado since 2009. Mule Deer had not been hunted for the prior 8 years allowing the herd size to recover and the trophy bucks to mature. This has allowed us to take bucks scoring 196 5/8, 191 3/8, 190 2/8, 186, 182, 176, 172, 168, 164, 162, 158, and 156 while leaving many trophy quality bucks for the coming seasons. Neighboring ranches have also followed a similar game management practice allowing the herds to increase in size and quality. The upcoming hunting season should provide opportunities for mature 190-210 inch mule deer bucks based on the high numbers of mature bucks left on the ranch after this past season.
1x1 ( one hunter per guide) guided hunts are available for an additional $1000.00

New Mexico Mule Deer $5500
Lone Star Outfitters offers private land mule deer hunting on 10,000 acres in northern New Mexico; Unit 56. We have been hunting this ranch for antelope for several years and have identified a mule deer herd with numerous quality bucks. This ranch had not been hunted for mule deer in many years and offers a chance at the buck of a lifetime. In 2009 Trophy Bucks scoring 180 inches and 168 inches were harvested along with 2 management bucks. 2010 yielded 100 % success with the largest scoring 178 inches. Hunters missed and spotted several deer scoring over 200 inches leaving high hopes for the future. 2011 yielded a 60% success rate with hunters taking 4 mature bucks over 160 and several deer scoring in the 130 to 155 range. 2012 yielded a 75% success rate with 3 hunters taking bucks in the 145 to 165 range. We are currently not booking hunts on this ranch in New Mexico for 2015 or 2016 allowing the bucks to mature.
These five day hunts are with two hunters per guide. Meals & accommodations are at the hunter's expense in nearby Raton, NM.
