Join Len on his 2011 WY long range deer hunt

Join me on my WY deer hunt this fall. My friends at Mule Creek Outfitting have a few more spots available.

That horizontal band of trees in the middle of the picture is where our camp will be based next September for my dream mule deer rifle hunt. It's at 9,000 feet in the Bridger-Teton National Forest of southwest Wyoming with an emphasis on long range opportunities.



The hunt method is to move by horses from one bowl to another, spending plenty of time at each one with careful glassing.



I have become friends with the outfitters after meeting them at two deer expos in Wisconsin last winter. John and Jacob were in the booth next to my LRH booth and we spent a gazillion hours talking hunting and enjoying good Mexican restaurants. They have many years of experience successfully hunting the western states with horses.

Mule Creek Outfitting - Wyoming Deer, Elk, Antelope Hunts

They had a very successful 2010 season and filled all of their tags for archery elk hunting, rifle elk hunting, rifle pronghorn antelope hunt and black bear. Their mule deer hunting was outstanding and they had 100% shooting opportunity. 87% of hunters were successful in taking home a mule deer buck, with 2 animals over 180.

Here are a couple of their clients' 2010 deer.

Re: Join Len on his 2011 WY long range deer hunt

I have hunted that country for thirty years and plan on being there next year. I may see you there.

I just checked his website and read about the bears. I can concur with what he says on the site. I have hunted just SE of there for near thirty years and have never seen a grizzly until this year. While archery hunting elk I saw a large boar grizzly walking along a ridge a quarter mile away. Seen black bears on occasion through the years but the first grizz in that country.

How much is the hunt you speak of? I am getting to old to backpack that country and a horse looks better every year.

That looks like some great country Len. Good luck too you! I think I'm going to change areas this year and instead of hunting the southern Big Horns I'll go way up near the Montana border and take a look at some of that country where I haven't left any boot prints yet, LOL!

Re: Join Len on his 2011 WY long range deer hunt

Len,

What unit and which season are you going on? How many pref points to draw? A buddy and I have been looking at an outfitter north of there in the Gros Ventre range south of Jackson for a couple of years. We might just go with you instead. He has two pref points, I think I have one, but it might be two will have to check.

Rick

Rick

I'll check further but John said usually 1 point is successful in the draw. That's what I have.

I forgot for the moment which unit it is but I'll ask John.
