Bow hunt mule deer on 60,000 private acres in New Mexico

This hunt takes place on two ranches that cover a combined 60,000 acres near Silver City in southern New Mexico. The terrain is rough desert and foothills country with a lot of brush in places.

"You see a lot of bucks," the outfitter said.

"But don't even come if you won't shoot a 22- to 26-inch buck that would score in the 150s, 160s or 170s."

Usually about one-third of the bucks killed are 26 inches or better, but most are in the 22 to 24-inch category, and the average is about 24 inches wide with a score in the high 150s or low 160s.

The Jan. 1-15 archery hunt is popular because the deer are often rutting and easy to spot.

We've worked with the outfitter for about 15 years.
