In a follow-up phone call at press time, Bryer told us his mule deer scored in the 180-class, and that he missed a much bigger trophy. Bryer tells us that hunters travel by ATV, glassing fields and then stalking on foot, and that most of the hunting is accessible to any physical ability. He concludes, "You need to take a look at Twin Creek Ranch if you are looking for a quality mule deer or whitetail hunt. This ranch is 30 square miles of upland bird and deer habitat with river bottoms and alfalfa fields. Deer are everywhereyou see shootable mule deer bucks from the lodge. The quality of the hunt was excellent."
We also talked to Zack Taylor at Twin Creek Ranch. They only take eight deer hunters per year (four for each species), though they also offer antelope (12 hunters per year, 6 bow, 6 firearm), wild upland birds and waterfowl, and high-volume prairie dog shoots. The average whitetail they shoot scores 155; the average mulie, 175. Unfortunately, they do not have any deer openings for 2012. Their resident antelope herd has also declined drastically from over 500 animals to 80 due to an outbreak of disease, and they are only taking two hunters this season.
