Lifetime bronze benefactor
Congrats on a fine deer. Three separate efforts to get him - a fork horn might have been looking pretty good.
Great point! In my humble opinion it’s not worth it!I have been thinking of a Sonora desert mule deer hunt. I am a bit ambivalent - not because of 'security' (I have traveled over much of Northern Mexico and Baja), but I am concerned about the quality of the hunt v. prices.
Congrats, he's a nice deer. However, I understand what you're going through. For me, if I have to talk myself into a mount, I'm usually disappointed some time after the fact. With that said, if you think this may be your last trip to Mexico, I wouldn't think twice and would mount him.Hey folks, just returned from Sonora Mexico for my third attempt at desert mule deer, as pictured not what you would expect to take in Sonora but when the deer jumps up and runs and have no time to really look at it and when the guide says shot!!! You shoot. Was the last day of hunting and deer movement was horribly bad. No one else saw a buck in 6 days…Disappointed but with two unsuccessful attempts at least I punched my tag. Still haven’t decided weather to mount it. Hopefully I can return and try for a bigger boy and add coues deer.
Agreed... a lot of luck. With this outfit it looks like a couple a year break the 200 mark out of a dozen or so hunters from my calculations. I'll go back someday but with a whole new perspective on Coues. Fun stuff.A 205 and then a 209 on return. That's pretty good luck. As much as I love a big mulie, I like the odds of chasing Coues and believe me, when you find a 100" or better you are jazzed!
