The quality of the bucks bagged is nothing short of phenomenal. Some were truly world-class in anyone's book. For instance, at their Patrone camp in western Kansas, all hunters filled their tags on white-tails that averaged over 155 Boone & Crockett! Two bucks in particular were real eye-poppers. One grossed 190 and netted 171 typical Boone & Crockett points. Another was even larger, grossing 202 and netting 188 typical B & C points!
More impressive to many, myself included, is the honey-hole of big mule deer USO has found around it's Rafter B operation, also in western Kansas. During a September hunt, one USO client tagged a buck with an incredible 38-1/2-inch outside spread. Another took a mule deer that taped 31 inches with a gross score over 200 points! Granted, those two bucks are on the high end of what was taken, but other mule deer bucks taken this past season averaged between 27 and 30 inches, with gross scores in the 170 to 185 range!
As with Kansas residents, non-residents must apply for permits. Taulman's United States Outfitter's Professional Licensing Service handles all of the details for potential clients. There is a $113 fee for the licensing service, in addition to the regular $2,950 fee for the hunt, which is payable upon drawing a tag. The deer license itself, for any weapon, is another $260.
