I have never been west before but am looking for recommendations for either a mule deer, antelope or combo hunt for my 13 yr. old son and I. If anybody has ever taken a young teen please tell of your experience.
Southfork Mountain Lodge & Outfitters. Buffalo, Wyoming. Was out there this October, for a combo hunt & was not disappointed. Great accomadations, great food, Great guides. We seen & I am not exaggerating 150 to 200 Mule Deer & twice that in Antelope. My Buddy and I Each killed Both deer and speed goats. Our Mule Deer won't break any records but were respectable Bucks mine was a 4x4 with brow tines, My Buddy's was larger a 4x3 with brows but higher & heavier then mine.The Antelope I shot was big 14" buck from what I have been told that was a great antelope for that part of Wy. My buddy's antelope was very nice too but not Quite as big as mine. The over all experience was great & we were in camp with two other groups of hunters both of those groups were repeat clients. I Highly reccomend this outfitter.
I gotta chime in too. Just returned from A double J outfitters. I wrote about it here and also on bowsite.com Rusty and his wife run a great place. The guides were professional, fun and knowledgable. great bunkhouse, all around perfect place, we saw lots of game and took real respectable animals.
