Remember this, big bull elk are fun, big pronghorn bucks are fun, but Big Trophy Mule Deer are Tough!! They are tough for reasons other than the fact they are old and wise, reasons we don’t totally understand. Where the concentrations of mule deer in a given herd decide to congregate on their summer and fall range each year, and how big bucks can choose to become totally invisible for a period of time leaving one to think there are no big bucks left are just some of the factors that make trophy mule deer tough to hunt. This can change slightly from year to year, and in many cases it makes no sense. If you don’t understand this principle, then please, you may not want to hunt mule deer with our company. There will be no refunds given back because you feel that a hunt has been misrepresented. If you are a hunter who can take the more difficult years along with the better years, and understand the difficulties of managing for trophy mule deer, then come and join us for one of the best mule deer hunts in the country. You may harvest the trophy buck you have always dreamed of!


DESERET PRONGHORN

Deseret’s pronghorn population allows for a great buck hunt. We harvest on average bucks ranging from 70-75. There is a great population of pronghorn on the Deseret ranch. We typically do a lot of the buck hunts during September. But the hunt is very spectacular during October; buck pronghorn group up later in the year and it is amazing to see large heards later in October. Hunters can expect to have many opportunities at harvesting a mature buck. You will be housed in our beautiful lodge which has hot running water, individuals rooms and bathrooms, and all other amenities.
