Utah Mule Deer Overview:

Utah's mule deer have really made a comeback. With better management, range improvement and predator control, 200 inch deer are being harvested every year. With public land mule deer units like the Famous Henry Mountains and Paunsaugunt it is easy to understand why Utah fascinates trophy mule deer hunters across the globe. The best units are on a public drawing and difficult to get. We can also arrange to purchase landowner tags and conservation tags on these better units.

We guide both resident and nonresident hunters on limited entry and and general season hunts in Utah.

The Utah Limited Entry Mule Deer hunt is considered a trophy hunt.
The Utah General Season Mule Deer hunt is not considered a trophy hunt.
In 2013 The Utah DNR split the state up into 30 different genreal season units. Detailed information below.


Utah Mule Deer Conservation Tag Program:

Utah has a Conservation Tag program. Conservation Tags purchased from a charitable organization are 100% tax deductible for the buyer. This conservation money is used on wildlife projects here in Utah. It is money well spent for wildlife and habitat. These tags allow us to hunt the premium areas without waiting years and years to draw a tag. We can assist you in purchasing these tags. We can help you apply for the Utah big game drawings. If you are after a trophy hunt we would recommend that you purchase a conservation tag or contact us to find out the best limited entry units to apply for.

Information on areas we hunt can be seen below.
