Outfitter # 251

Montana Trophy Mule Deer Hunt in the Rut



This TAGS outfitter has the exclusive private-property located in the trophy mule deer producing area of South Eastern Montana, which is famous for quality mule deer. The ranch is 42,000 acres of prime mule deer country consisting of 6 miles of hay fields on one end and timbered breaks and rolling grasslands on the other. November is the rut for mule deer and that is what makes this hunt special; the ability to find buck mule deer moving about all day. They have carefully managed this property over the years to maintain quality hunting. The caliber of mule deer is great and because of our outfitters past management practices we expect next year to be another banner year. Typical mule deer are 4x4 main frames scoring 160-170, with a few lucky hunters tagging bigger deer.
