About this hunt

Southwest Desert is a draw-only hunt meaning you must apply for the hunt during the Utah big game application period (April-May) and draw the tag. No OTC tags are available for mule deer. The Southwest Desert unit has produced many giant bucks over the years. It is a general season unit so the state issues quite a few tags, but the potential is there to harvest a great mule deer buck. Deer numbers are pretty low in the Southwest Desert so you can expect to see only a handful of deer every day. However, there are some good quality bucks around. Terrain can vary from low desert sagebrush country to backcountry wilderness areas. Difficulty of the terrain ranges from mild to extreme depending on which part of the unit we are hunting. We are happy to accomodate to the clients wants/needs. Camps can vary from trailer camping to backcountry camps with horses or pack llamas. 2023 approximate points needing to draw. Each year these numbers seem to change quite a bit so 2024 may be similar odds are completely different: - Archery: 4 points - Muzzleloader: 4-5 points - Late Rifle: 5-6 points

Where you will hunt

Territory

In the southwestern corner of Utah, this is one of the largest deer units in the state and includes the Pine Valley Mountains and several other ranges. It is not managed to produce trophy-class bucks but has produced some great deer, including the former state record typical. The big rugged mountains in this unit provide great glassing points but also make it difficult to make a play on the deer. Scouting will be your best bet to locate, pattern, and harvest these deer. Low country can hold good deer also, but the vast pinyon-juniper forest can make it extremely difficult to see the deer long enough to have a chance.


Fence type: Not fenced

Territory size: Varies depending on the unit

Languages spoken by staff: English Spanish

Operating since: 2019 year


Where you will stay

Pine Valley Hunting Camp

Camp accommodations can vary depending on the clients desire and needs. On hunts close to roads we typically have travel trailers and/or wall-tents and use trucks/ATV’s. Although these are “road hunts” we recommend being in good shape because a lot of hiking can be needed to avoid other hunters. We also try to utilize the horses to access remote areas whenever it is feasible. When hunting the backcountry, we use horse/mules/llamas to pack-in lightweight tents or wall tents. The backcountry hunts require a lot of hiking in steep terrain, so we recommend being in good physical condition to increase your odds of being successful.
