MULE DEER

1/5

MULE DEER HUNTS

Trophy mule deer are one of the most sought-after species in North America. They are also one of our favorite animals to hunt. We hunt three of the top states in the west for trophy deer, Utah, Wyoming and Arizona. Trophy size will vary from area to area and permit costs will be reflected in the unit’s hunting quality. We also hunt Sonora, Mexico for desert mule deer. 

Utah Hunting Opportunities

Utah has some of the best mule deer hunting available.  We offer archery, muzzleloader and rifle hunts in most of the limited entry units across the state.  

Archery hunts begin the middle of August thru mid-September.  General muzzleloader season runs from late September thru early October. Rifle hunts begin in late October. There also are some late season muzzleloader hunts available that end in early November. 

 

Utah has general season tags on a separate drawing from the limited entry tags. You can collect points for both general/limited entry areas.

   

Most of the hunting areas are accessible from trucks and ATV’s.

  

Deer in Utah are managed by buck-to-doe ratios and some areas require data on age class.
