Deep Creek Outfitters offers guided mule deer hunts primarily in the southeastern portion of Nevada. Each of the units we guide in have the potential to produce 190″+ bucks. Nevada issues a low number of tags, so it can take many years to draw a tag… but once you draw a tag you have a good chance of killing a giant buck.

All of the units in southern Nevada are very dry and typically have low deer numbers, so pre-season scouting is critical to finding a big buck. We spend months scouting and running trail cameras during the summer to locate the biggest bucks in the unit.

Depending on the unit and the client’s needs, camp accommodations may consist of travel trailers, wall tents, or backcountry camps. We guide all seasons for Nevada mule deer in the following units:

  • Archery (Aug. 10 – Sept. 9)
  • Muzzleloader (Sept. 10 – Oct. 4)
  • Rifle (October – November)
Units we guide in:
  • 241-245
  • 231
  • 221-223
  • 131-134
  • 271, 272
  • 251-254
  • 261-268


Guide Draw

Nevada has a special “guided only draw” for non-resident applicants applying for rifle mule deer hunts with a guide. Typically, your odds of drawing a rifle deer tag are 2x-4x better in the guide draw compared to the regular draw. If you are planning to use a guide to rifle hunt mule deer, we recommend applying with us in the special guide draw to increase your odds of drawing a rifle deer tag. The guide draw does not apply to archery or muzzleloader seasons.

*Note: if you apply in the guide draw, you cannot apply for mule deer in the regular draw. You can only apply in one of the drawings. All other species are applied for in the regular draw. 

*Nevada does not offer OTC tags and is a draw-only state. You must apply and draw a mule deer tag before hunting (with the exception of landowner permits that can be purchased but are typically very expensive). To get an idea of your drawing odds, here is a link to past drawing statistics:
