Well NM draw passed and we didnt draw so Im looking for recomendation for an outfitter that consistently shoots 180-200" mulies and possibly bigger. Their could be up to 3 of us. Panhandle, NM or Colorado would be nice but could go farther NM or CO would have to have vouchers. Please let me know any good experinces youve had for a true chance at a monster.

I have Monster Mule Deer in Old Mexico

Hard to find a deal better for the size deer we kill.

I have plenty of picture and many references.

Good luck with that. Those are hard to find anywhere. I've hunted Sonora, MX 3 times, and they are very difficult to find there too (no offense to Kimber). I did luck into a 214" gross monster typical though back in 2006 so it is possible. I haven't been back down there since 2008.

Last year we harvest 6 deer over 200" free range the biggest was in the mid 230's

How many hunters?

Make no mistake, my post was not in any way intended negatively towards you. I know the game down there, and know that bucks that size are few and far between anywhere. I've killed 3 bucks 190'+, and that giant 214" typical (only one from MX). There are far fewer outfitters down there nowadays too, and way fewer hunters venture down there for obvious reasons. I can see how those that go anyway may have slightly better odds than years past.

I agree, there are very few outfitters or places you can go that CONSISTENTLY shoot 180-200 class MD. They have to have a lot of age on them and great genetics to get that big. 1 out of 3 hunters maybe but 3 out of 3 not gonna happen.

Well guys my old Mexico mule deer hunts are for 180" deer plus.

On farm ground in Colorado every year we kill a few really big deer. Had one into the 260's one time.

Farm ground in Colorado basically turn into a bidding war though

Pitchfork is correct. Your not gonna find those numbers in a panhandle or NM hunt. Frankly I'd be very leary of an outfitter that made promises of 180+ outside of the Sonora Desert or a few units in AZ. Possibly the sand hills.

I know SE Colorado has some monsters, obviously it's not guaranteed for that size but I want to hunt somewhere their seeing them on the ranch and it's a real possibility.

If money was no option I would go with Wade Lemons outfit in Sonora. I have hunted with him twice and taken Mule Deer over 200" on both trips. He runs one of the best operations I have ever seen. Truly first class all the way.

My understanding is that Wade's the man in Sonora. He doesn't list prices on his website but I doubt you could get booked with him for under $15K. Can I ask what you paid P&Y?

Me and a buddy hunted with Wade Lemon last year and a lot of things were not as promised.We felt like we were mislead in several ways.

He's been known to mislead, no doubt about it. Like the time a 3-4 yrs ago they killed a monster buck and plasterd the pics all over everywhere to advertise their expertise. Turned out it was a pen raised buck, protein fed, that was let go a few days prior to the hunter showing up to kill it. Numerous pics surfaced afterwards of the buck eating from a protein feeder with the high fence in the background.

I'm not representing that was illegal, but it was very much dishonest. He's not squeaky clean.
