Where to hunt a giant mule deer? Outfitter recommendations..

My father in law has always wanted to shoot a giant mule deer. He would like to go on a hunt to have a high success rate on big mature mulies (180" or better). He realizes that this will probably require a high price on large piece of private land. His mobility is fair and he can do some walking, but probably no more than a mile or two in moderately difficult terrain.

Any idea what the Jicarilla Reservation tags go for?

Besides the Jicarilla, what else is out there?

Any info on the Powell 4A ranch or the Kessler Canyon ranch?

Mexico is not an option.

Jicarilla is a draw system, and tags are $15,000. 180+ is a non issue, they claim they average 200". Tribal members are able to hunt too, and kill some GIANTS. You said Mexico is not an option, I wouldn't reccomend it anyways as there are far fewer big bucks than everyone realizes, and it has been a slow few years lately anyhow. Colorado is a good bet. I have nothing specific but landowner tags can be had for a decent price, and there are several units that have giant bucks that can be drawn with just a few points. NV has some good areas with landowner tags from about $5,000 with big buck potential. UT has some auction tags, but those are all gone by now. I'd concentrate on CO though.

We had a bad winter in 2010 but the deer are rebounding very well. if you were to research outfitter in northern Alberta Canada you would have a great chance to kill some very nice bucks.

Good point. Canada has some private land hunts that yield some giants. Again, no specific info but research should be pretty easy.

The Ranching for Wildlife hunts in CO have scored some nice bucks. Kennedy Hunting Services does them.

Good friend of mine owns this operation. I have hunted with him and he is first class, so there are no surprises.

He has giant Mule Deer!

Give him a call and tell him I sent you.
