Description: Simply stated these hunting areas hold lots and lots of whitetails. A hunter should expect to see hundreds of deer on a hunt, sometimes in a single field in a single evening. Operating on leases comprising over 250,000 acres, including over two dozen ranches, which are strictly managed for quality bucks and high game numbers.
The goal is to target whitetail bucks in the 4-6 year range. Most mature bucks have an extra point or two, with drop tines and split tines not uncommon. The average whitetail scores 130 to 150 B&C. The largest whitetail harvested in the past was over 190. We are confident that on a standard hunt every client should see whitetail bucks in the 120- to 150-class range. This destination has been focused on quality deer management for years, and has consistently improved the age and trophy quality of harvested game.
Rifle hunting for whitetails begins October 1 and runs through the month of November. The first month is spent pursuing big bucks that evaded harvest during the archery season. Lots of scouting and the predictability of whitetail routines ensures great success at this time of year. Rutting activity kicks in about the first of November and is intense. Bucks chasing does and bucks fighting, rubbing and scraping are commonly seen on these later hunts. Sightings of 10-50 bucks each day is standard fare on all whitetail hunts.
A lower cost alternative to the standard spot and stalk hunt is our whitetail rifle stand hunt. The stand hunts are guided four hunters to one guide. We have lots and lots of stand locations and use tree stands, ladder stands, hay bale blinds and Double Bull ground blinds. We pre-scout natural travel routes that the deer are using. We hunt both the pre-rut and the rut – there are definite advantages to both times – earlier the individual deer are more patternable and later the deer travel more. This is a great alternative to Canadian hunting – no Customs or out of country travel required, lower cost with comparable trophy quality, and best of all, no all day sites in the excruciating cold! There is no reason to expect less than 100% harvest of mature bucks on these hunts.
