Deer Hunting

Deer top

Our Wyoming Mule Deer hunting is the best it has ever been. We manage our herd each year for wide, deep forked bucks by offering management hunts on mature bucks to continually improve genetics. We control the hunting on virtually 100% of the 17,000+ acre ranch, therefore we can have a greater impact on the quality and quantity of our deer. This allows for a genuine opportunity to harvest a very nice buck. The hunting is primarily spot and stalk, greatly limiting the pressure on the deer. A 170 class deer is very common, with 180+ deer taken each year. Our largest deer taken on the Ranch is 220+. Transportation is usually accomplished with ATV’s and 4WD vehicles. Because of the diverse habitat on the Cross “C” Ranch we can offer everything from a low land river bottom hunt to a high-country rugged mule deer hunt in Big Horn Sheep country.

We have an amazing herd of Whitetail Deer that are localized on our alfalfa fields on the Bluegrass River with mature bucks having the run of the place each year. Wyoming Deer tags famously offer the hunter to harvest either a Mule Deer or Whitetail on the same tag. We are also pleased to bring this kind of diversity to the outdoorsman as a Wyoming Whitetail can truly be a special trophy. Wyoming offers a Late Season Special Whitetail permit that allows hunters the thrill of hunting Whitetail Deer in the rut. Please Contact us for any interest in special Whitetail Deer late seasons or any further questions.

The hunting license application period is January 1st to May 31st. The license area for the Ranch is Region J (or Area 64.)  It is a draw area, but has had a 100% draw success rate for the last 10+ years. This means that there are also leftover tags available. Again, this tag is good for both mule and whitetail deer. The deer season typically is October 15th thru the 25th. Our deer hunts are offered in 2 5 Day blocks during those 11 days of the deer season. (Note: The Wyoming Game and Fish reviews the Deer Season dates on an annual basis, so the season dates are subject to change.)

Fishing is offered in our stocked ponds free of charge for all hunters & guests. It is stocked with rainbow and brown trout.

A fishing license must be purchased.

The Hunt Area for The Ranch is Area 64 or Region J for general tags and the season dates are from October 15th to October 25th.

2016 Application period is January 1st – May 31st.

All Deer Hunts are 5 Day Hunts.
