Re: Mule Deer Hunt

Does your AZ mulie guide cater to bowhunters or is he mostly rifle?

    Re: Mule Deer Hunt

    Oh, he's definitely an archery freak. The last conversation we had he related to me that he wouldn't even consider taking a firearm for elk, or mulie.

    Rest assured, if you're looking for an archery guide, Ralph is your guy. So long as YOU know what you are doing and can shoot to 60-70-80 yards with a bow with confidence. If not, he'll put you in the animals lap. But for his clients, he does not have a problem with rifle hunters at all.

    Re: Mule Deer Hunt

    I would definatly like to talk with this guide for a future hunt. Any contact info would be much apprechiated!

    BTW, growing up in AZ one was forced to become VERY profficient with archery tackle at 60-80 yards. I used to be deadly at 80 yards. I am not as good but I can hold my own at 70 yards.

    Re: Mule Deer Hunt

    I've been shopping for a (RIFLE) Mulie hunt in West Texas or the Eastern part of New Mexico. Anyone have any connections with either of these areas? Texas is preferred because I won't have to buy an out of State license. Never hunted Mulies or Pronhorn Antelope before but have wanted to since I was a kid!

    Re: Mule Deer Hunt

    Nighthunter, give Johnnie Hamilton a call or check out his website:

    Johnnie Hamilton

    719-846-3559

    He has excellent references and success rates. If I recall, he does have land in TX to hunt. But for sure in NM and CO. Also, and I'm going by memory per one of our past phone converstions, his fee for the TX hunt is a bit more but that is because the lease is higher. AND, the quality of antelope bucks is not remarkable compared to other regions of the west.

    OR you can call Billy Cole at the Flag Ranch: $2000 to hunt and $2000 kill fee

    I actually like that. It is better than spending 4 thousand dollars on a hunt whether you kill or not. PLUS it makes you a bit choosy knowing that you have to fork over $2K if you pull the trigger. You'll most likely see Havelina, and lots of coyotes.

    Good Luck.
