Guided Late Season Ranch Trophy Mule Deer Hunt in Montana
(Max 3 seats)
$ 2500 classic Mule deer hunt reduce down to only $ 1495 per hunter. There are a limited number of seats allowed at this discounted price on this hunt. These can be close shots or long shots depending on the habitat the bucks are found in. The best suited rifles are flat shooting calibers from the 25.06 up to the 300 magnums. Elk can be hunted at the same time but this is a much better deer area than a elk area. The fall season concludes in late November with guided mule deer hunts near our ranch along the Rock Mountain Front. The last two weeks of November are the end of the big game season and the trophy mule deer bucks are starting to rut. On these hunts we do not use the wilderness camps because the game has moved out the edge of the mountains.
The last two weeks of November are perfect for hunters who want a late season mule deer hunting experience in Montana. We hunt this time of year from our ranch along the Rocky Mountain Front. This is the winter area for many big game animals when they come out of the mountains.
Mule deer hunting from the ranch involves horseback riding and a lot of hiking, but this is not a back country camp. The weather is much colder and there will be snow on the ground. Primarily, there is mule deer hunting, but occasionally there is elk hunting in this area. Temperatures this time of the year can range between 70 and 10 degrees. The deer with react accordingly to the weather, moving, or bedding depending on what nature tells them to do.
The weather is their key, the worse weather the weather the better the hunting but in turn the better the weather the more difficult the hunting as the bucks hang-up between the high country and ranch. These are a limited spot and stalk for these migrating bucks leaving the high country coming to their winter home on the ranch.
This is a 3 day hunt but extra days can be purchased for just a reduced rate of $ 100 per day per person to cover our costs. Deer can go down in the middle of a ranch pasture. The town of Choteau is north of Butte Montana. We will provide game retrieval but depending on the down location and the equipment and effort to retrieve it there may be an additional charge. This hunt does not include lodging and meals but a local motel in town to stay in and there are local restaurants in the area. We will provide all transportation on the ranch during the hunt be it horses or 4x4 truck.
This is primarily a spot and stalk hunt and we are very familiar with the hangout of the bucks during this time of the year.
