New Mexico Mule Deer Hunting

H&A Outfitters, Inc. offers mule deer hunts in the top trophy mule deer units in the state of New Mexico.  These are limited draw units which in turn allows the bucks to reach maturity.  Thanks to management, habitat and genetics, these units will continue to produce trophy class mule deer for years to come.  Our rifle hunts start in late October through mid-November. This is pre-season rut. Bow hunts run from January 1 - 15. This is towards the end of the rut. Our mule deer hunts take place in the Carson National Forest and BLM and state lands in Rio Arriba County in the northwest quadrant of the state. We hunt mostly public lands in this area. It's not uncommon to see over 8-10 quality bucks a day. We take a very limited number of mule deer hunters per year and our success rate averages 80% and better, harvesting 165" to 185" class mule deer. The potential for a Boone and Crockett mule deer is a definite reality in the areas we hunt.
