I have only been Mule Deer hunting 1 time in Texas, and I had a great time. My Father and I had a 4 day trip on a 20,000+ acre ranch north of Van Horn. Great time...

I am wanting to go on another hunt this Fall, and I was wondering which part of Texas has the best overall Mule Deer? Any suggestions on a particular ranch? Thanks!

The sandhills up in the far northwest part of Texas are great for big Muleys. Some big boys down by Alpine too. I hunted with Desert Safaris in both places last year and saw a bunch of big bucks get shot, and killed a management buck for myself. You're going to spend some $ with them for a big muley, but its first class all the way, and you'll basically have your pick of big bucks. All fair chase.

Big deer in both the trans-pecos and the panhandle.

The panhandle has the larger bucks but I would rather hunt them in the trans-pecos

There used to be a muley that roamed a turkey lease that I hunted in Quanah Texas. He was a non typical muley and I am pretty sure he died of old age. There was no talk of anybody in the area killing him. I would go west of Quanah if you wanted more sightings than just one old ghostly buck. I saw a picture of a young guy that killed a huge non typical in a county that borders new mexico. It was definitely a buck of a life time.

North of Van Horn is the best place in Texas to hunt Mule Deer. Delaware Mountains.

There are some really good Mule Deer in both Trans-Pecos and Panhandle. If you are wanting to go with an outfitter then be prepared to get on a waiting list and spend some $$$$.

up





Sand Hills are good too. 200" potential in both areas. Gotta pay to play though.

Growing up, I always heard Van Horn area was best in TX but that was 30-40 years ago so sure things may or may not have changed...

I agree, I'd rather hunt muleys in the trans-pecos. Those deer ob2west posted are some studs.
