Whitetail Deer Hunts
Carmen Mountain Whitetail
November 4 - January 7
Pick any 4 hunting days
For the hunter looking for a unique Whitetail hunt, the Del Carmen Whitetail is probably the least known of any of the Whitetail sub-species. Found only along the mountains of the Rio Grande River in west Texas, these diminutive deer offer the hunter a challenging hunt. This hunt can be compared to hunting Coues Deer in the Sonora desert. Plan on doing lots of glassing from high vantage points, working toward a spot-and-stalk style of hunting.
These deer are very small in size, ranging from 34 to 36 inches high at the shoulder, making them very hard to spot. The use of spotting scopes is a must, along with good binoculars. Many times these deer are found feeding at over 2000 yards. Most deer taken will be at least 3 ½ years old, having 8 or more points. It is not uncommon to take deer having 10 or more points.
Lodging will be taken on the ranch at an old open range Cowboy camp. It is not a fancy camp but does have a hot shower, flushing toilet, and a bunkhouse. Power is provided by a generator.
Aoudad can be added to your hunt year around and Mule Deer when in season. Included at no additional charge are Javelina, Varmints, Feral Hogs and Mountain Lion.
Make your flight arrangements into El Paso or Midland Texas. Drive time from either airport is about 2 ½ hour to Marfa, Texas where we will meet you. We will provide all bedding (sleeping bags) and bath towels which cuts down on the gear you need to bring.
