WY Mule Deer Hunt Report by Paul Shellgren

Wyoming Hunting Lodge

I was very impressed with the number of mule deer we were seeing on our Wyoming hunt. It was my first time mule deer hunting and was ready to take the first nice buck that I saw. However, my guide said to hold off and it was on the afternoon of the 3rd day of a 4 day hunt that he finally gave his approval to take the buck. It was in the birch trees with snow on the ground but less than a 100 yards It was a one shot kill to the neck. When admiring the buck a grouse walked down and jumped on a log 10 feet away and starting to drum. It seemed like it knew the deer’s spirit had departed! Also, saw a lot of elk, a Shiras moose, and a badger, heard elk bugling and coyotes howling.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
