4-Day Guaranteed Mule Deer
This is our most successful mule deer hunt. The guarantee is simple, if you don't
harvest a buck or get a reasonable shot opportunity you can return for half price, very few outfitters make this offer.
3-Day Management Buck Hunt
This hunt is for specific bucks that are inferior
in some way and not desirable for breeding. Your guide will tell you which buck you can shoot. In many cases you will get a
better buck than you would on many other hunts.
2-Day Doe "Meat Hunt"
This is meat hunt for a female deer. These hunts normally take only one day.
The hunt includes a guide with transportation during the hunt and game care.
Shot opportunity has been 100% for nearly 20 years on these Montana deer
hunts. Rifle hunters should sight rifles dead on at 200 yards, most shots range from 50 to 300 yards. Archers should practice
from 10 to 80 yards, depending on your ability and equipment.
Hunters usually get big bodied mature mule deer bucks with 18" to
28" wide antlers. Many of the bucks taken will be in the 140's to 160's with a possibility of bucks in the 170's to 180's
To insure quality hunting, Bearpaw Outfitters lease thousands of acres
of private ranch hunting land near Miles City in Southeastern Montana.
Hunting methods often include spot & stalk hunting, glassing hillsides,
draws, fields, and brush pockets, or sitting and watching water holes and feeding areas. Several properties have good vehicle
access so physically challenged hunters can also have a great hunt.
Montana is one of the few states that has a rifle rut hunt for Mule
Deer. Rifle season generally starts in late October and ends the Sunday after Thanksgiving. There's a couple weeks overlap of
Deer and Antelope seasons, so deer/antelope combo hunts are available in late October and early November. Archery hunting
season opens in September through mid October. Archery hunters usually hunt from blinds or spot and stalk.
The first two weeks of season are popular for Deer and Antelope combo
hunts. Hunters wanting to hunt the deer rut plan for mid to late November. Most any time you choose to hunt during the season
should be successful.
