Founded in the epicenter of monster mule deer country, True Hunts is a foremost expert on opportunities to harvest big mountain deer. Cliff has been involved in the harvest of dozens of deer over 185″, many over 200″ and has spent years researching areas that can produce top quality bucks. We now offer what we believe to be the widest array of quality mule deer hunts you can find anywhere, with opportunities from Sept 1st through the Mid-December. Unlike most big mule deer outfitters, we have a wide variation in tag availability. Some of our hunts are easy to draw tags, some hunts come with a guaranteed tag and others require a minimal investment in a landowner voucher.
Most of our hunts are in Central and Western Colorado, but we also offer unique opportunities in British Columbia.
Our wilderness hunts are primarily operated through our wholly owned Colorado Outfitter, Flat Tops Wilderness Guides . We offer both lodge-based wilderness hunts and back-country camps. These are demanding hunts for big deer. Having some mental toughness, physical preparation, and being open to riding horses for long hours is essential. These hunts are not easy, but can produce deer that are typically only available on $15k+ hunts.
We offer a select number of private land hunts in Colorado that have comfortable lodging and utilize ATVs. These hunts can produce quality bucks and are a comfortable experience.
The British Columbia hunts are a hidden gem. We are still exploring new areas in BC and keep being surprised by the pockets of quality deer. The biggest advantage of BC is we can hunt bucks from velvet to late rut. BC promotes a “opportunity” based mule deer management system with insane pressure on their deer in accessible areas. Hence, hunters have to be open to the back-country type of hunt you would expect out of a sheep hunt. Long days, horses, and beautiful country.
