You should see plenty of nice mature deer. It does vary from year to year based on horn growth and migration but on the tough years deer will average in the low 160’s and on good years deer will average in the low 170’s. Generally deer are shot every year 180 and even 190+ but the reason to go on this hunt is for the back country adventure…not the giant deer.
This is a wall tent, with cots and wood burning stove camp. You’ll have an eating tent and a sleeping tent and the outfitter has great stock that is very seasoned at carrying new people to horseback.
HUNTING AREA DETAIL
You will be hunting in the Frank Church Wilderness which is one of the most remote places you can be in the lower 48. You will be hunting the rutting and wintering staging areas and the country is steep and rugged. Luckily you will be camping and hunting on the upper portions so the need for being super fit is not really necessary. You’ll be day hunting mostly on foot but both sometimes on horseback as well. The guys who kill the biggest deer on this hunt use their binos, not their legs. You will be looking over a lot of deer and camped among them.
