Ryan Lampers live at hunt Expo
Title: Ryan Lampers
I had the chance to catch up with Ryan Lampers at Hunt Expo. I love the expo since it fits in perfectly with my Javelina season plans. Ryan and I start our conversation by talking about Coues deer and I recap my Megatron buck story from back in December. We get into chasing Javelina and Coues and trying to see them in the grass and Ryan talks about his trip south of the border. The last time I was in Mexico, I cut my hand trying to cross a fence and it was a pretty tough hunt. I did get a buck and also saw a jaguar!
Ryan’s hunted in Arizona for a number of years, but he’s fairly new to Mexico. He doesn’t do a ton of border hopping since it can be pretty intimidating, especially when you’re carrying rifles. This past January, Ryan went down to a ranch, and he says he saw way more Coues deer in Arizona. They felt lucky to turn up a couple of bucks a day and there were very few does. He was high in the mountains, and it wasn’t as open. Even though it was tough at times, Ryan and his crew had a great time and they did wind up with some good ones.
Ryan and I talk about rifle hunting and chasing mule deer and the challenges that come up. Sometimes the challenge is more with dealing with the weather and elements and locating deer than the actual shot itself. To put more of a challenge on the hunt in Mexico, Ryan put limitations on which kind of deer he was after. We chat about the tag system and different units and how desperation can result in wounded deer. We also talk about getting “the moment of truth” right, getting the perfect range right before taking a shot, and Ryan’s current bow setup.
