I'm an elk outfitter in NM and I met one of Aaron's guides, Ryan Miller at a trade show. I liked him personally and the quality of the mule deer they took. I booked the hunt with the assumption, Ryan would be my guide. It was a December archery hunt in 2005. To make a long week short, I loved Ryan as a guide but we spent the first four days looking for mule deer and saw lots of does and small bucks but never saw a buck bigger than 130 class. HOWEVER, we did see a mid 170-class whitetail and 4 other whitetails over 140. I spent the last two days of the hunt trying to kill that big whitetail with no success. I got under 100 yards three times on that deer but couldn't get within bow range. For a challenge you should try sneaking within bow range of a whitetail buck, herded with 30 other deer, on the open prairie, in six-inch tall grass. Tough! But I had a blast trying! I believe there are some big muleys in the area despite not finding them that week I was there. I'm an outfitter and understand the game fully. I had fun and would do it again. Rifle hunting would be easy if you can just see the buck you want. Bring good knee pads and leather gloves!!!
