Mike Mckinny. I have not done a mule deer hunt with him but have done 3 other hunts. He has a good reputation, always had a good time.

LoneStarTrail Outfitters does combo hunts for both muley and whitetail. Trent always does a great job and he has some fantastic animals on roughly 36,000 acres just south of Ft. Stockton.


Foolish people cry about this smallest things. Don't believe me, ask the one always crying when things don't go their way.

I just did an aoudad hunt with Hunter Ross from Desert Safaris. Saw a ton of great mulies. they are a very well run operation and hunt big country around Ft. Stockton, Alpine, Marfa. Highly recommend them...

The better outfitters are booked 2-3 yrs out on mule deer hunts nowadays....Desert Safaris or Wildlife Systems would be my choices.

His hunts are a little expensive but you get a lot. He has access to some of the best ranches and you get treated well. There is usually a cook in camp. He puts you on some really good animals. I've done a free range axis hunt and the management mule deer hunt. The ranch I hunted for mule deer was 100,000 aces and there were mule deer everywhere. Everyone in camp tagged out and the guys that where on the trophy mule deer hunt got some really nice animals. The axis deer hunt with Hunter was the most gun I've ever had on a hunt.

I hunted trophy mulies with Desert Safaris in January 2017 and January 2020, and would do it again in a heartbeat. Wish I could do it every year.

I think its around 5K for management and 9K for trophies. We went 4 for 4 on trophies in January of this year, with scores ranging from 160 to mid 170s. When we went in 2017 by BIL took a mid 180s buck. Like an idiot, I passed on one that was in that same class on the first day of our hunt in 2017 and wound up taking a management deer. We were hunting peak rut both times, and probably saw 50+ deer a day and maybe 2-3 shooters per hunter over the course of a 4 day hunt.
