Double Buck Hunt
Here’s something that might be of interest to you. Starting this year, we have a double buck hunt.
The saddest part of a mule deer hunt comes shortly after the harvest, when your tag is filled and you realize your hunt is over until next year…..or is it?
We are now offering four double buck hunts a year and are currently booking for the next two seasons. That’s a grand total of eight spots over the next two years. This hunt is ten days and goes from October 23rd to November 1st,– just in time for the pre-rut! These eight spots aren’t going to last long, so if the idea of taking two mule deer on one hunt excites you, seize the moment and let us know you’re interested.
Idaho is 2nd only to Colorado for big mule deer.
With over 496 Boone and Crockett entries to date, it’s easy to see why hunting big mulies in Idaho is so appealing. Idaho is second only to Colorado. In order to take a big deer, you have to hunt where big deer live, and it also doesn’t hurt to be able to visit one of the most beautiful places on Earth while doing it.
Mule deer hunting can be one of the toughest, most rewarding things you ever do. I’ve seen mule deer belly crawl past hunters 20 yards away on a sagebrush hillside, or slowly lay their head on its side as someone walks by a few yards away with no clue that they are there. You have to work for a big buck, but sometimes you get the opportunity to take one.
I was raised hunting mule deer in Idaho, following a family tradition going back generations. I started out brushing quakie patches, buck brush and pretty much anywhere else my dad thought mule deer could hide since I was about eight years old. Dad always made it sound like a really good deal, though.
When I was about ten I figured out that I was just bird dogging for the old guys sitting perched up on the ridges on either side of whatever patch I was pushing. Sometimes we would still hunt through the cedars and I would be instructed to head down to the bottom and make as much noise as possible on the way to the road. I didn’t care what I was doing as long as I was hunting. The method worked, and I got to see a lot of nice mule deer on the ground. I also had the privilege of packing several of them off the mountain. Maybe it was a right of passage, I don’t really care. I fell in love with these big eared, grey ghosts, and my quest for big mulies began.
I’d love to help you book a great deer hunt of your own, and I think this Double Buck hunt is a perfect one.
