Has anyone hunted mulies in Sonora. I know its not cheap but it looks and sounds amazing. O'connor wrote a lot about it and I think it would be a unique hunt where you have an actual chance at a deer that will tape out wider than 30 inches
Have a couple of friends that have done it, on both sides of the border. The Sonorran desert is actually a huge area, and holds some dandy bucks. There is some good hunting to be found for sure, but as you said, if you have to go with a guide, it's not cheap.
Rather than spend my hard earned pennies on those cool Shoot-N-See targets or even the preprinted targets at sporting goods stores, I save a few bucks for weekend plinking sessions by using paper plates as targets. A 100 count pack of paper plates costs less than a 10 count pack of preprinted targets.
If you are playing with something like a semi auto AK, or building a young shooters confidence with a 22 or shotgun, those big eight inch blanks are perfect for putting holes in all...
