New Mexico Mule Deer Hunts
Rancho Rojo Outfitters
The Public Land MULE DEER hunts we offer have LIMITED licenses in an area that year after year produce mature heavy horned bucks. The area has some outstanding bucks with an excellent resident herd and, with cold weather, migratory deer move in as well. Numerous record book deer have been harvested from this area. Units hunted are 2C, 5A and 5B which are quality deer management areas. These units are without a doubt the best areas to hunt mule deer in New Mexico.

The Rifle Hunts are held in November ( 3 seasons are available, all 5-day seasons. ) which is the time frame of the "pre-rut", this makes for more and better bucks. This is a spot and stalk hunt, driving to the area to be hunted and glassing, from highpoints, and walking thereafter.
Terrain is easy to moderate with great access. Elevations hunted are from 6500 – 7500ft.
Archery season is held in September and the January hunt is a very exciting hunt as well, with the tail end of the rut keeping the big bucks active. Our standard hunt is 6 days, with shorter and longer hunts available.
Muzzleloader season is held the last week of September, which is also a spot and stalk hunt, with 90% shooting opportunity over the past years.
