I've hunted Mexico a few times over the year but I had a great hunt last year. I was concentrating on sheep but had my eye open for Mulies too. Spotted an awesome ram on day 2 bedded down on the very top of the mountain but there was no way to get a shot closer then 900yds. Even if I could shoot that far there would be no way to get to him. Day 3 and 4 spotted the same ram but he would leave the safety of the high cliffs. Day 5 spotted another shooter ram after stocking half the day was able to get with in shooting range. With my sheep down still had 2 days left to concentrate on mule deer. The rut was just about to start so we weren't seeing the number of deer I was hoping but we were seeing deer. The rancher had been seeing a big non-typical hanging around one of the several protein feeder located throughout the ranch but being a low fence ranch and the rut kicking in there was no telling where he might be. We spotted a big framed deer running through the brush in the general area but we couldn't tell if it was the big guy we were looking for. We decided to stop for lunch and give that area another round. Just before dark we spotted a big non-typical standing in the brush. It wasn't the deer he had seen earlier but he was at least a 200" plus. With my hunting days running out and I decided to give it a shot. My shot was true and the buck was down. The first thing I noticed when I walked up on the buck was the incredible mass. What a awesome week in Mexico.
