Big deer are dollar driven 100%. There just aren’t enough of them anymore. I’ve known quite a few guys who’ve killed 200s in Canada and there were hands out at every turn up there. It only starts with the outfitter…by the time your done your giving cash to the Uber driver cause he was a cousin to the ranch hand whose brother in law saw a picture of the deer you killed in the hoof.

If I was you, I’d spend 10k on a LO tag and giver her hell. Luck will play a part in all trophy deer. Have fun!!

If it were me…I’m a big fan of western Wyoming. Region G will take a bunch of points, so I’d build a few and go on an outfitted horseback Region H hunt. 165+ is very doable, decent chance for a monster, and some of the coolest mule deer country anywhere.

Not knowing your point situation from state to state I would go eastern Colorado or Alberta for a realistic chance of obtaining a tag & killing a big buck :twocents:

Bull Basin Outfitters in Colorado take a lot of great bucks. Or as already mentioned, try to find a good private land voucher for a late season Colorado hunt.

Land owner tag in the states that sell them is a great option

I have a buddy who guides for Big Buck Outfitters in Wyoming. He is always sending me great buck pics during his guiding season.

Lots of great suggestions here and your budget will definitely secure you a great opportunity. Keep in mind the cost of the outfitter while it is generally the largest cost is just the beginning. Travel costs, tips, taxidermist fees can all add up pretty good too.

Alberta. If I was gonna do a guided muley hunt I'd be going to Alberta :twocents:

Exactly! I went about 10 years ago.  Got a nice muley and a big white tail.

No points?

1) Idaho unit 26/27 with a good outfitter (guaranteed tag)

2) Boulder Creek Outfitters (Idaho)

3) Montana private ranch hunt with a good outfit.


Dave runs a good outfit, check them out and see what you think.  They pack into the wilderness on horseback.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
