Fetzer took his buck while hunting with Steve Jones of Backcountry Hunts. He is one of the few Texas outfitters who has access to land where Carmen whitetails range freely. Jones hunts in the Chinati Mountains, where his clients also chase aoudad, mule deer and javenlina. Jones' clients, we understand, have been 100 percent successful on bucks averaging 75 to 85 SCI points, which is sufficient to make the record book. Jones charges $3,500 for a 1 x 1 hunt that runs four to five days. He also offers combo hunts for the other species mentioned above, and allows hunters to take predators (mountain lions, coyotes and such) when seen. Licenses for this hunt are readily available over the counter for $300. If you aren't successful in a drawing out West this year, a Carmen Mountain whitetail hunt may be the perfect alternative for you. For more information on the hunt and what hunters can expect, read the detailed report on our web site (www.hunting report.com). It's available to all subscribers on the opening page.
