7 Lazy P Outfitting offers trophy quality guided mule deer hunts and drop camp hunts in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Our trips are memorable, whether you’re an experienced mule deer hunter or first timer. Plus, it’s always amazing to see a mule deer buck in the peak of the rut; our crew and past guests agree that it’s one of the most gripping shows you’ll ever watch.
Out of all the deer species, mule deer are probably one of the most rut-crazed. During the peak of the rut, it’s not uncommon to see bucks madly chasing does through Montana’s landscapes. During rut, it’s fairly easy to close the distance on the trophy deer of your choice.
7 Lazy P Outfitting only offers trophy mule deer hunts. We aim to target only mature mule deer in the 170” plus range. This is a self-imposed minimum which, we hope for the sake of the mule deer, will become contagious among our fellow hunters. The Bob Marshall Wilderness area is known for mule deer that will gross 180” plus.
We offer several options for guided mule deer hunts, including early season and archery hunts that take place on our pack-in Bob Marshall Wilderness trips. During these trips, you’ll stay at one of our three camps where you’ll enjoy Montana-inspired culinary offerings, including made-from-scratch baked goods and grass-fed beef, prepared by our talented chefs.
The peak of the mule deer rut occurs during the later part of general season and our general season mule deer hunts are based at the historic 7 Lazy P Guest Ranch. You’ll stay in one of our comfortable cabins and enjoy the historic atmosphere. Based on the location of the lodge and access it provides, you’ll be offered a multitude of different areas to hunt by either foot or horse. Most of our guided mule deer hunts start by riding out on horseback and then hunting on foot.
In addition to general-draw hunts, we also offer special-draw hunts. These are limited-entry hunts that provide access to some of the most amazing hunting opportunities on both public and private land.
At 7 Lazy P Outfitting, we would welcome the opportunity to introduce you to Montana’s backcountry, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and all that it has to offer. If you are looking for guided mule deer hunts of any shape or form, feel free to contact us here.

"We did a pack trip last summer. We had an excellent time. The family, employees included, was so wonderful. Coming from a metropolitan area it was so refreshing to visit somewhere where people are still so friendly. Montana is beautiful and I would highly recommend this company for a pack take on a camping vacation. "
