Our most popular tag is the unit 36-B November deer tag. This tag allows us to hunt Mule Deer bucks while in the rut with very little pressure from other hunters. We stay at our house/lodge and hunt using vehicles/ATV’s and horses if needed. There are only 5 other tags in the limited entry draw during this season. When you look at the draw odds in Idaho of all species, the only tag that is usually more coveted is the unit 11 Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep tag. It is nothing to see 50 bucks per day on this Idaho hunt.
Our other quality tag is for unit 36. This is an early-season hunt that allows us to pursue large bucks while they are on their summer range. This Idaho hunt opens September 1st and first began in 2019. This is a tent camp, horseback, warm weather Idaho hunt. There are 5 draw tags in this unit so the chance of seeing another hunter is very slim. We hunt high elevations and spend many hours riding horses and sitting on our butts glassing for these monster bucks. Most of these bucks have not shed velvet yet so if you are in shape and looking for a large, velvet buck, this is your hunt.
Mile High offers a few other options for mule deer. Most of our elk rifle and archery hunts are sold as combination hunts and allow you to get a Mule Deer tag along with your elk tag. We also offer a 4-day Mule Deer hunt in the front range Oct. 9-14. Please read the success rates on this website to see when most Mule Deer are harvested.
