West Texas Mule Deer Hunts are conducted in the Trans Pecos and Big Bend regions. Our Texas Mule Deer Hunting Ranches vary greatly in size from a few thousand acres to 400,000+ acres; due to this diversity it allows us to offer Hunts in all price ranges to our clients. Mule Deer population and trophy quality vary from ranch to ranch and we have priced our Mule Deer Hunts accordingly. Nonresident Mule Deer hunters will need to purchase the Type 105 General Non Resident Hunting license which is $315.00 over the counter, Resident Mule Deer hunters will need to purchase the Type 101 Resident Hunting license which is $25.00 over the counter. Several of our Texas Mule Deer Hunting properties offer easy access off of main roads, but more are off the beaten path in remote scenic regions of Texas. West Texas terrain varies from gently rolling hills, to steep canyons, and wide valleys; we also offer large ag fields to hunt over. Mostly though expect rocky terrain filled with plenty of cactus and desert plant life typical of West Texas beauty.

West Texas Mule Deer Hunts FAQs

Mule Deer  are hunted in open terrain so be ready to glass longer distances and pick apart the hillsides. Typical shots are 300 yards out to 400 yards in some cases. A minimum of a .270 caliber or similar rifle/pistol/muzzleloader is highly encouraged, along with a good pair of 10X to 12X binoculars for glassing the terrain. Mule Deer hunters are more than welcome to bring their bow out and we can set up a Mule Deer Hunt during archery season over water and feed. Most Guided Mule Deer Hunts will take place driving and glassing the terrain then stalking closer to make the shot. A comfortable pair of boots and a day pack is recommended as we spend most of the day out in the field to cover as much ground as possible. Our Guided Mule Deer Hunts on all ranches combined averaged 85% success rate and Self-Guided Mule Deer Hunts are around a 65% success rate. We are happy to provide Personal References and Testimonials upon your request.
