Winter Mule Deer Viewing:
From late November until sometime in February when the weather is perfect for a UTV ride, our own Utah Hill offers extraordinary mule deer viewing. In Southwest Utah, the mule deer migrate from the Pine Valley or Enterprise mountain ranges into the desert on and around Utah Hill. When friends and relatives come to visit us in the winter months, this is the ride we take them on and ALL have thoroughly loved it. Most folks don’t know that Southwest Utah is home to a large and healthy herd. Some of our State’s largest racks have come from here. We cannot guarantee to see any mule deer because of the nature of their nomadic behavior but we have not been skunked yet!
We will start with a climb up to Hell Hole Pass and down to Indian Springs. We know of many trails that offer outstanding views of the deer before the bucks lose their antlers. If we can’t find them on the familiar trails then we will explore places where we think, from past experiences, the deer will be. This is also the time when the bucks are in their rut where they are focused on finding a mate and are less concerned with other surroundings; in other words, us. This is one our favorite rides to take even without tour guests.
Cost: TBD depending on how long you want to tour.
