Mule deer hunts are 5 day spot and stalk hunts for both rifle and muzzle loader. Rifle hunts are fun and not usually as physically demanding as an elk hunt. You need to be comfortable shooting to 300+ yards. I take a maximum of 3 deer a year off of the properties to keep my quality very high. This hunt has all meals and lodging provided. in 2016, the hunt dates are October 22-26, 2016 or October 29-November 2, 2016.
Rifle hunt cost:
2 on 1: $3,800 each plus hunting license and tag validation (over the counter and available online)
1 on 1: $4,000 plus hunting license and tag validation (over the counter and available online)
The muzzle loader hunt is a great early season hunt. This is strictly a 1 on 1 hunt. This is a great opportunity for you to get a deer that is still in the velvet. The bucks are still in bachelor herds during this hunt. This will make it easier to locate the big bucks as they are still in their summer patterns. You need to be comfortable shooting your muzzle loader to 150+ yards. Inline muzzle loaders and scopes are legal in New Mexico. Hunt dates are September 27-Octoberr 1, 2016.
