The 2011 season was a good mule deer year at Non-Typical Outfitters. The theme of the year was very hard work for every opportunity we got. There were no “gimmes” this year. We definitely saw some impact from our brutal winter. Our Wyoming mule deer harvest rate was down from 2010, but we still took some great trophies and had a tremendous amount of fun with clients and staff. (more…)
Category: Wyoming Mule Deer
Western Wyoming Mule Deer are the top trophy mule deer herds in the country. We have a high buck-to-doe ratio, outstanding genetics and the age class necessary for trophy quality deer. This herd has produced Wyoming’s best mule deer bucks such as Popeye, Morty and Goliath; and now Magnum and Snag. Their genetics can still be seen in the herd today. There are more Boone and Crockett entries from Western Wyoming than any other area in the state. This is one of the best areas to hunt for trophy quality mule deer in North America.

Our hunts take place in the high country of western Wyoming from 7,000 to 10,000 feet. Horses give us transport to the high country. From that point we do most of our hunting on foot. Hiking is a must. The terrain in which we hunt mule deer is physically challenging to nearly all hunters. Mule Deer hunting in the Rockies of western Wyoming is the pinnacle challenge of western hunting. It will stress you physically, mentally and test your shooting skills like few other hunts on earth. The reward is in the gift of hunting with horses in some of the most breath taking alpine country God ever created, while hunting one of the most majestic and challenging trophy animals of North America.

Magnum’s story began in early August 2011, on a scouting trip with a good friend. We were scouting an area that we hardly ever hunt. Out of the timber stepped a Wyoming giant. The buck was headed to water. He walked across an opening on a timbered ridge, in the open for only minutes. We could identify the cheaters, in-lines, drop tine, and of course, the MASS. In seconds his name came to mind, “MAGNUM,” the non-typical mule deer. (more…)
The 2010 mule deer season was probably our best season to date! We had a high percentage of success. Our success was measured in the quality of trophies taken and, most importantly, in the good old fashioned fun we had. This year’s success is a testament to our exceptional staff and to our clients who were well prepared and had great attitudes. We also had good horn growth due to our recent favorable weather conditions. (more…)
The 2009 mule deer season was once again highly successful for Non-Typical Outfitters. We started the season with more pre-scouted big deer than years past. There was an increase in antler growth this year compared to last year. We took some great bucks in the early part of the season in spite of the extremely hot temperatures. (more…)
This is a buck that we discovered while scouting our preseason mule deer hunt for 2008 that we named “Coronado” (the crown buck). Unfortunately, none of our hunters were able to take this buck home. We did find opportunities to shoot at Coronado twice, while in his bed at about 200 yards. But we missed. He then ran over the next ridge and was killed by a DIY hunter. One of our guides is pictured with Coronado below.
Here are examples of some of the biggest mule deer bucks that Non-Typical Outfitters has taken in the years 2001-2008. (more…)
