Whitetail Deer Hunts
All of our Missouri whitetail hunts are guided and include lodging, two meals, as well as transportation to and from stands. We currently have over 200 pre-hung stands on our over 10,500 acres of managed ground! We pay close attention to the wind and all other contributing factors. Our guides take you to and from the stands. In and effort to make our hunts better, we have eliminated the two weeks of pre-rut hunts we have previously had. The Oct 25th hunt will be our first full main hunt. Any groups of 4 or more that want any other date prior to the October Hunt please contact us for availability.

Weapons & Permits
In Missouri, you have a few options to hunt deer. Most clients do hunt whitetails with a firearm - rifles being a choice of many. We do from time to time get some outdoorsmen and women wanting to try out hunting with a muzzleloader. For those archers you can use either a traditional bow and arrow, a compound bow or now it is legal to take deer with a crossbow. Crossbows are great for those who are not quite confident in their ability to shoot a bow and arrow. Crossbow deer hunting in Missouri can also be a great way to introduce a young hunter into the sport.
