We also offer a 7 day "Guide Only" option or a "Scouting Package" only as well for Mule Deer on the Kaibab in Arizona. Extra Day's and Extra Spotters can be arranged with the outfitter. Hunts do not include your tag and license. An annual license is required to apply (appx. $160) or purchase a bonus point only. The annual license is nonrefundable if not drawn. The cost to apply or to purchase a point only is about $15, and if you are drawn the remaining license fees for the deer tag are paid (appx. $315). If you are applying for the draw, an additional $10 - $25 fee for "PointGuard" is expected for purchase. PointGuard ensures your points are preserved should you be drawn and have to return your tag for any reason. This is recommended!
