Even though this area has an extremely high elk density it also is known for its B&C Class mule deer usually taken during the later seasons when the deer rut is on in November. Every year the area finds at least1 or 2 mule deer that break the 200 inch barrier as they look for does during the 2nd, 3rd or 4th season and become accessible to hunters for that brief time span every year in this area. This outfitter also provides a bachelor herd hunt during the 1st part of the 2nd season being the first ones pursuing them with a high power rifle and can catch some big bucks off guard on his 30,000 acres of private property.
While we are adding to Craig, CO’s reputation it is best to bring in the record class Pronghorn Antelope. The area consistently gives us P&Y along with even B&C record class bucks to the diligent hunter that will not give up on all the opportunity to take a buck but keep his bullet in his pockets or his arrow in his scabbard until the right buck is in the right place for a 1 shot clean kill with a flat shooting rifle or bow.
The record books don’t lie. The genes are here and when the age is provided these bucks have what they need to make a great wall mount with record book level scores.
Your outfitter is a trophy hunter also and has sent many record book animals home with his clients for over 30 years. Outfitter skills are never spoken about but in my business, it is my life blood. The number 1 skill of a good outfitter is to secure high quality property and do it in a way to keep his overhead low enough he can sell his hunts at a fair or lower than fair market price.
