deer hunting at the lodge provides a great opportunity to harvest some big whitetails
during the rut. Ordinarily hard hunting, whitetail in our area are open to a late
season hunt, which makes the reality of harvesting a trophy much easier.
whitetail can be hunted either with blinds, or spot and stalk. We use some calling
when appropriate to enhance the hunt. The spot and stalk techniques provide a
rare opportunity to be able to strategize and watch these deer without having
to sit in one spot all day. Hunting pressure is low, so you
don't need to worry about somebody getting in the way of the hunt.
whitetail deer live in areas that rarely get hunted, so they are allowed to grow
naturally to large trophies. There are getting to be a lot of whitetails on the
ranch, sometimes we'll see 15-20 mature bucks in a day. This deer above was harvested in 2011 and is the biggest we've had--160 B&C!.
must put in for a license, but drawing success has been 100% for the last several
years. Our hunts include all meals, lodging, guide, and hunt. We'll take care
of all the paperwork for you as far as getting a license.
We had 3 Whitetail harvested in 2013. After a rough go with a disease called Blue Tongue, our whitetail numbers took a hit over the winter of 2012/2013. The whitetail were a little tough to come by but we are seeing enough quality bucks left that we will continue to harvest a few each year. There's one thing I've learned about whitetail, they will survive!
Past whitetail hunts from 2009 & 2010
Thanks for an outstanding hunt. I couldn't be happier with the bison and white
tail. I had a great time. Rutha is a phenomenal cook. I hope you can keep her
around. Steve was terrific. What a great guy! He's clearly a very knowledgeable,
hard working, and ambitious guide. Plus, he's just a pleasant person. Right now,
I plan to do an Alaska hunt next fall, if I can't pull together an acceptable
Alaska trip, I'd definitely like to come back to the Rockin 7. Larry Gates Salem,
Good morning. I thought I would send a quick note just to let you know the my
wife and I had an absolutely wonderful time at your place. Please pass on a BIG
THANK YOU to Rutha and Steve for their efforts in making our hunt and stay completely
rewarding. Thanks, Redhawk "|
