Ranching family offers mule deer hunts on private land in northern Utah

If you want to maximize your chances of taking mature buck muley nowadays, your best bet is to focus on lightly hunted private land.

This hunt offers virtually 100 percent hunter success at mule deer in the 160 to 200 class.

The ranch is not behind high fence, but hunting is excellent because the property is surrounded by other ranches that are managed for quality hunting. Both elk and deer are thriving with many bucks and bulls growing old enough to sport good racks. For details on the family's elk hunt, click here.

The ranching family conducts the hunts. That works out well because the men in the family know the property well and how to hunt it.

One attractive feature of this hunt is that the ranch takes very few hunters. On most hunts the ranch accommodates two to four hunters on the property.

Because most of the property is a Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit, there is a public deer hunter allowed on the property for five days during the year.

The family also leases 1,200 acres from a neighbor. The family also conducts elk hunts. Their land lies in one of the areas where elk and mule deer coexist and thrive. Most elk hunters take 5x5 or 6x6 elk. There's a possibility of hunting elk and deer at the same time. Details on the elk hunt.
