Eastern Colorado has long been known for the giant Mule deer bucks that call this area home. With 99% of the plains being large tracts of private farm and ranch ground it is no wonder why this area continues to produce. Our outfitter has over 275,000 acres under exclusive lease with many of the areas being managed for over 10 years to produce trophy deer. Trophy expectations are 170-200 inches with a few bucks breaking the magical 200 mark each season. If a big Mule deer is on your list this hunt should not be over looked!
Although landowner vouchers are issued they are not readily available. If you’re considering this hunt or one of our other Colorado options you need to be applying for points. Please contact our TAGS department if you would like to begin acquiring the needed/valuable preference points.
