GULF COAST WHITETAIL DEER HUNTING

The newly added Mexican Gulf Coast Whitetail Deercategory in Safari Club International consists of the Mexican deer of the whitetail subspecies O.v. veraecrucis that are distributed mainly along those regions in the states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz, in Mexico, that border the Gulf Coast.

These deer have medium-sized bodies and usually have small racks that are not too heavy and have short and slender tines. The inside spread of these racks is approximately 6–9 inches. On average, a mature buck will measure about 4.8 feet long, 2.4 feet at the shoulder, and will have a tail around 7 inches long.  Their coats range from light brown to grey and help them camouflage themselves by blending into their surroundings. Their small racks are designed to help them flee into the dense tropical forest at the first alert.

These deer are only found south of the border, in Mexico, and the main area of distribution is the coastal southern part of the State of Tamaulipas, the State of Veracruz and the small State of Tabasco. Their natural habitat consists of the tropical deciduous forests and the tropical rainforests of these areas. They are located where the weather is predominantly tropical: warm and with high humidity.

Global Sporting Safaris offers 3-day hunting expeditions for these beautiful tropical deer in the State of Veracruz, where our Outfitter will have you at the Ranch and ready to hunt in about 1½ hours after the airport meet and greet. A modest, but dry and warm cabin is where you will rest. You need to bring a sleeping bag and your favorite pillow on this hunt. A towel, your toiletries, rain gear and insect repellent are also must-haves. Since this hunt takes place in a dense tropical forest setting, it is very recommendable that you bring light to medium hunting camo clothes. However, since the average temperatures during deer season will be highs in the upper 70s (F) and lows in the low 50s (F), you should also pack a medium-weight jacket in case the weather turns cooler in the evenings.

The hunting takes place over natural ground blinds close to water holes and over game trails. You will also be spotting and stalking for deer where fields border dense tropical forest. After breakfast, the hunt goes on during the early morning; at noon, you will come back for a siesta and a delicious lunch of local fare before heading out for the evening hunt. Finally, you’ll come back to camp for a good dinner before the tropical day is gone. Refreshments and bottled water are provided in the field during your hunt and trophy care and prepare provided as well. Guiding is normally 2×1, but if you would like to hunt 1×1, it can be arranged for a small additional fee.

This outfitter’s ranch boasts a substantial population of Gulf Coast whitetail deer and additionally you will also find a healthy population of beautiful axis and Sika deer that thrive in this region. Another excellent trophy you may encounter on this hunt is the rare white-lipped peccary. Both of these additional species may be added to your hunt on a trophy fee basis. Other small games you are bound to run into on this hunt include agouti, armadillo, rabbit, coyote, hare, coati, paca, and the more common collared peccary.

If you are crossbow or bow hunting you will have no trouble at all bringing your weapons into Mexico and will not need any permit for them. If you want to rifle hunt, we need to make arrangements with the outfitter, or our Mexico agent, in order to provide you with a rifle for a nominal fee.

The deer season in the State of Veracruz runs from the 30th of November until the 24th of February of each year, with prime time for Gulf Coast whitetail deer being in mid-February.

Hunt Duration:  Hunts are four (4) nights and three (3) days on a 2×1 Hunter to Guide ratio depending on weapon choice.

Hunting Methods: Mainly spot and stalk and in brush blinds.

Rates:  $3,497 for the Gulf Coast Deer hunt.  Additional animals on a trophy fee basis: White-Lipped Peccary $3,500; Axis Deer $1,250; Axis Doe $300; Sika Deer $1,000; Collared Peccary $350.

CARMEN MOUNTAIN WHITETAIL DEER HUNTING

If you want to hunt the Carmen Mountain whitetail, then this professional outfitter is the choice for you. With over twenty years of experience hunting the brush country and badlands of northern Old Mexico, they provide ambitious hunters with top-notch hunts for great trophies—and, with this species especially, a chance to earn their place in the record books.

A CLASS OF THEIR OWN

The Carmen Mountain whitetail is native to the Sierra del Carmen mountains area, as well as the surrounding badlands and mountains, including the Sierra del Burro mountain range. Although smaller than other whitetail species, it has just recently been recognized by SCI as a separate species for the record books. With the competition limited, now is a great time for hunters to get their names entered in the record books.

The following are considered trophy-worthy Carmen Mountain deer:

Good: Any buck with a minimum gross score of 80 B&C or SCI points.

Excellent: Any buck with a minimum gross score of 86 B&C or SCI points.

World Class: Any buck with a minimum gross score of 100 B&C or SCI points.

The average Carmen whitetail buck carries a rack with an inside spread of ten inches and with three or four points on each side. Bucks with a twelve-inch spread will usually fall into the “excellent” class, while anything above thirteen is a real monster.

Compared to other whitetails, these deer don’t have especially large or heavy antlers; the main attractions are their viability for records, the challenge of the hunt, and the incredible badland-and-mountain setting. The average antler base circumference for this species is about two and a half to three inches. The main beams are generally about twelve or thirteen inches in length, and the tines average about four inches.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS AND BEHAVIOR

These deer are masters of the disappearing act and have earned the nickname “desert ghost.” Their brown summer and gray winter coats are perfect for matching the barren backgrounds and dissolving into brush. On top of this, they are just as easy to frighten as their northern cousins, and will quickly flee if spooked. A cautious stalk will be absolutely essential.

HUNTING SEASON

The whitetail deer hunting season in this area generally lasts from late November to the end of January.

CENTRAL MEXICO PLATEAU WHITETAIL DEER HUNTING

In October of 2012, Safari Club International, with help from the Monterrey Chapter of Safari Club International and many SCI Members, recognized four new Mexican subspecies of whitetail deer from the eleven subspecies currently residing in Mexico. These four subspecies are all eligible for entry into the SCI Record Books.

  •  Mexican Central Plateau whitetail deer
  •  Mexican Texanus whitetail deer
  •  Mexican Gulf Coast whitetail deer
  •  Mexican Pacific Coast whitetail deer

The Central Plateau Mexican whitetail deer hunt offered by Global Sporting Safaris is conducted in the Sierra Madre Mountains in the region of the Sierra Fria (Cold Mountain) range, just a little over a 60-minute drive from the Aguascalientes airport. The hunts take place at 7,000 to 8,000 feet above sea level amongst the pine- and oak-covered canyons and high plateaus. The predominant deer subspecies at this location is the highland Mexican whitetail deer aka Central Plateau white-tailed deer.

Hunting will take place in natural blinds and tree stands over established feeders or via the spot-and-stalk method. These two types of hunting are ideal for both the bow hunter and the rifle hunter. The Sierra Fria range of the Sierra Madre Mountains is also home to thousands of Gould’s turkeys that will also frequent the feeders, but unfortunately their seasons don’t coincide.

Global Sporting Safaris’ recommended caliber for Plateau deer hunts is .243 through .270. Due to the smaller size of these deer, anything over .30 caliber may be overkill. Shot ranges should be from 75 yards over feeders to 150 yards on spot and stalk.

The season runs from December through the first two weeks of February with the rut taking place in the month of January.

There are only nine Plateau whitetail deer recorded in the SCI Record Books as of the uploading of this webpage; their recorded measurements are as follows: The Plateau whitetail deer will usually be 3×3, 3×4 or 4×4 with main beams ranging from 11 7/8” to 19 3/8”. Inside span will range from 11 1/8” to 15 1/8”. T1 ranges from 6/8” through 3 3/8”, T2 from 6 2/8” through 6 4/8”, T3 from 1 2/8” through 6 6/8” and T4 from zero to 7 5/8”.

The Central Plateau Mexican whitetail deer category groups whitetail deer of the following subspecies: Miquihuan and highland Mexican Whitetail deer which are deer with size, body weight and antler scores smaller than the Mexican Texanus whitetail deer, but bigger in size, body weight and antler scores than the smaller Mexican Gulf Coast whitetail deer and Mexican Pacific Coast whitetail deer. It should also be noted that of the two Mexican whitetail subspecies that comprise the Central Plateau whitetail deer, the Miquihuan whitetail is larger in body size and score than the highland Mexican whitetail deer.

DISTRIBUTION AND HABITAT

The main area of distribution includes the states of Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, México, Morelos, Puebla, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí, Tlaxcala, Zacatecas and the southern part of Coahuila y Nuevo León. The natural habitat is xeric scrub and thorn scrub, with extreme dry weather in the northern area and temperate weather in the southern area.

MEXICAN WHITETAIL SUBSPECIES

????????????????????????????????????

The Mexican white-tailed deer category consists of the following eleven subspecies: Carmen Mountain whitetail (carmines), Miquihuan whitetail (miquihuanensis), Veracruz whitetail (veraecrucis), highland Mexican whitetail (mexicanus), rain forest whitetail (Toltecs), Oaxaca whitetail (Oaxacan is), Sinaloa whitetail (Sinaloa), Acapulco whitetail (acapulcensis), and the Veracruz and Oaxaca populations of the lowland Mexican whitetail (Thomas).
