These guys are the first outfitters I've been to that want to work as hard or harder than the client. This is a no frills, get up at 3 AM, hunt hard all day,no holds barred, pursuit of big deer. They had me in the stand 30-45 minutes prior to shooting light every morning. The guide then moves to another area to glass and look for deer while you hunt. You have radios, so that you can come out when ready, or the guide can let you know if he has spotted something that he needs to get you on. While I was there, out of 13 hunters, 3 bagged whitetail that would gross over 170. I shot the largest whitetail that I saw, a 133 10 pt, that I misjudged. I saw an average of 8-10 deer per sitting, morning or afternoon. I saw deer scoring at least 125 or 130 every day. The Mule deer hunting there is underrated in my opinion. We had 2 muleys of 170-180 class harvested, and 2 smaller ones with 27" spreads. I talked to landowners on the ranches that had seen several muleys pushing 30". The potential for big bucks is exceptional, and a hunter willing to put in his time has a fair shot at a buck that will push book.
