The wide antlered, dark horned mule deer of Sonora, Mexico are some of the most impressive mule deer available in North America today. Because of this, mule deer hunts in Mexico are highly sought after, attracting hunters from around the globe.


Proper management along with minimal hunting pressure make Mexico stand out from the crowd.

What truly makes an area like this unique is a natural mix of hills and desert flats, giving us the ability to get a birds eye view of the terrain these mule deer call home. We limit the number of hunters each season to a number we feel the area can more than withstand. Making for a quality hunting in the Sonora area with little pressure and big trophy mule deer.

What is the trophy quality on your mule deer hunts in Mexico?

That is always (understandably the first question people ask. Pick a number between one and a million… It’s 200 isn’t it If you’re wondering if our hunters ever kill 200 inch monsters, the answer is “yes, but rarely.” Muley bucks of that caliber are difficult to find anywhere in the world.

That said, other than a few extremely limited entry units, or possibly our Alberta hunts, there aren’t many places that can compete with our Mexico mule deer hunts. You should expect a shot opportunity at a mature mule deer around 170 to 180 inches or so. Bucks bigger than that are out there, and it could happen for you.

Rifle Mule Deer Hunts in Mexico

Rifle mule deer hunts primarily run during the rut in January. This is prime time to hunt because the deer are constantly moving and a “Muy Grande” can appear at any time or anywhere. Your hunting days will consist of a mix of glassing and high racking.

Archery Hunts

These hunts take place the first few weeks of December. The archery hunts are much different than the rifle hunts. You’ll be hunting from ground blinds over feeders and/or water.

A giant coues deadhead

Think about making it a Coues Deer Combo.

As a general rule, Coues deer live in the more mountainous areas, while mule deer prefer the desert flats. If the ranch you’re hunting has both species, you should seriously consider Coues deer hunting after you’ve taken your Sonora muley.

Are you considering one of our Mule Deer Hunts in Mexico?

  • Demand definitely exceeds supply. These hunts aren’t going to get any more affordable.
  • In terms of trophy quality, not many other places can compete with Sonora, especially since you don’t have to draw.
  • Many bucks score over 170-180 inches, and approach that magical thirty inch mark. Our hunters average 190 inches, but a few 200 inch bucks are taken on a normal year.
  • It is not uncommon to see many bucks a day on some of these ranches.
  • We think you should seriously consider combining Mexico mule deer hunts with a trophy coues deer.
  • Our outfitters are almost all Americans, in fact one of them has dual citizenship.
  • Your guides will be experienced mule deer hunters, and in most cases, also be American. At the very minimum, you will have someone who speaks good English with you at all times.

Hunting Season

Rifle season for mule deer hunts in Mexico is December and January, with some hunts stretching into February.

Archery season is the first few weeks of December.

Combo Options

You can combo your Mexico mule deer hunt with a Coues deer as well as javelina.


Tracking has been one of the most widely used and one of the most effective. Mexican guides are well known for their tracking abilities and can stay on a buck track for hours through unreadable terrain.

High Racking

Have you ever heard of high-racking? Many outfitters use tower-equipped vehicles, just like whitetail hunters do in Texas, in order to see above the thick cover. This can be effective during the rut, as bucks tend to be more active.


The terrain on some ranches offers the hunter the opportunity to see several hundred yards ideal for glassing. A great method that we've found to be effective is to let the guide do his tracking as you glass from a high spot nearby.

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.
