Whitetail Deer Rifle Hunts
Our rifle deer hunts are a five day hunt during the first two weeks of the November rifle season. This is during peak of the rut. We use a variety of techniques from stand hunting, calling and rattling, to organized drives. If the weather and conditions permit we love to track.
We use one of the largest areas of public and private land holdings for our deer hunts. Northern Minnesota is known for its large – bodied whitetails. It is not uncommon for our deer to dress out over 225lbs and some have even topped 280lbs. The racks match the large body style of our deer usually very thick with good mass.
This is not a game farm hunt but a true wilderness hunt. Some of these deer have never been hunted. By being a lifelong resident of the area I am able to use this local knowledge of the wilderness to locate and figure out big buck patterns and hangouts. I also spend a lot of time with boots on the ground and use game cameras in making my decisions of where and when to hunt different locations. My guides do not hunt while they are guiding and spend their time while you´re hunting checking out other areas so we can keep you in the most active ones. Depending on the location we use groundblinds, portable stands and ladder stands for our hunters. These will be in place before the hunt starts.
The cost for 2015 is $850.00 per hunter and lodging is separate. I have motels that give my hunters a great room rate. At the end of the day of hunting we have dinner at my house and talk over the day events and plan the next days hunt.
In 2015 the hunt weeks are Nov 7th–15th and Nov 21th–29th. If you have any questions let me know and I´ll work with you in setting up your hunt.
