Overall Impression: High quality

I have hunted with Non-Typical Outfitters twice for Mule deer. I hunted in late Sept 2002 and early October 2003. Each time, I saw mature bucks every day. I was fortunate to harvest a buck each year. The first year, I harvested a 26" 3x3 and the second year a 27" 4x4 that scores in the mid-180's. The quality and quantity of mule deer is very good especially since this is 100% public land and general season. Their is very little pressure from other hunters as it is mid-season and you hunt very far from the roads. You stay in individual cabins in the valley and there is a husband and wife team that cooks. Private baths/showers. Cooked breakfast/dinner with sack lunch. Meals are in a large wall tent. Nothing fancy with the food but it is excellent and there is more than you can eat. You will leave the cabins very early (4 am) and trailer the horses to the trailhead you will hunt that day. You spend anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours on horse getting back into the country and away from other hunting pressure. You generally return to camp well after dark, eat and hit the rack at 10 or 10:30. Your pretty tired after a few days of this. This is a very physical hunt in rugged public land but if you are willing to do "your part", be in decent shape and shoot straight out to 350-400 yards you have a great chance at a high quality trophy. The hunt takes place at very high elevations (9000'+) so it is tough if your not used to the thinner air. Robb scouts extensively and usually posts pictures of individual bucks on his website prior to season. Robb is a hard core hunter who is in camp every day and is usually guiding someone himself. Not one of these outfitters who takes your money and you never see again. This is not a "canned" or "gimme" hunt but is a very satisfactory hunting experience.
