Northern Nebraska Trophy Whitetail Hunts

Adventure Description

This preferred outfitter brings you one of the highest success trophy whitetail hunts you will find anywhere. For nearly 30 years this outfitter has dedicated themselves to improving and managing private farms and ranches, resulting in personal best whitetails for literally hundreds of hunters. This 100% fair chase farm and ranch country hunt offers hunters the ability to choose between vertical bow, crossbow, rifle and muzzleloader. During their early season bow hunts, these early September hunts provide you a chance at a velvet buck. By mid-September, all bucks will be hard-horned. This is a weather-pleasant, short hunting hours hunt for those who don’t like to sit all day but still want to see plenty of deer during a compressed period in the early morning and late evening. Typically evenings are spent hunting alfalfa or other crop field edges as well as some food plots out of our ladder stands. Mornings are spent just behind the food in order to keep deer using the fields. Bucks are in bachelor groups and are not as “keyed up” as they are later, presenting a better chance of closing the deal. Minimum score for harvest is 130 gross BC. Late October/Early November is this outfitter’s hard-core bowhunter hunt. Bucks are seeking but not finding; nose to trail from scrape to scrape and most any hour of the day. Hunters can expect to see several to many bucks per day. This hunt is highly successful on really big deer because they compress the hunt offering into the most harvest susceptible dates. Before that, it’s not on. After that, they are running too crazy and have moved off the trails. This outfitter doesn’t hunt you when you don’t have a high chance of success. They hunt you when you can shoot something. You will be hard pressed to find a better bow hunt than this for upper-end whitetails. Minimum score to harvest 130 gross BC. Their rifle hunt is timed to coincide with the peak of the rut in mid-November. They strictly limit the number of these hunts and only take 4 hunters at a time in camp. Those are generally sold out a few years in advance. Bucks are in full rut making this hunt nearly 100% success on bucks from 140” - 180” gross B&C score. Hunting is done almost exclusively out of heated box blinds where you have a beautiful view and will be seeing deer all day long. Minimum score to harvest is 130 Gross BC. December is muzzleloader season. This outfitter can hunt you anytime, however, hunting is best December 14-19 due to the trailing off of the second cycle. Before that, the bucks are in post rut rest. After that can be great if the weather is horrible, but mediocre if the weather is mild. For that reason they like you to hunt 4 days between December 14-19 to stack the odds in your favor. Hunting is done out of a heated box blind or heated pop up blinds. Minimum score to harvest is 130 gross BC. When it comes to accommodations, You will stay in their well-appointed farmhouse that sits on one of the ranches to be hunted. Accommodations are two hunters per bedroom with a bathroom on each floor. Home-cooked meals are prepared by our camp cook. In 30 years of outfitter, this outfitter has learned that a clean, comfortable home that sits on one of the hunting ranches makes the most relaxing, enjoyable, and memorable hunt as opposed to the common “hotel hunt,” “trailer hunt,” or “bunkhouse.” The ability to share the moments around camp along with the time afield is one of the main reasons that our hunters come as strangers and leave as friends. When it comes to arrival and departure, the outfitter recommends you plan to arrive the afternoon/evening before your hunt and depart the morning after your last hunting day. When it comes to weather, September/October hunts are light jacket hunts with temps ranging from 40-70. November hunters must be prepared for anything from zero to 60 but keep in mind that rifle hunting is out of a heated box blind. Muzzleloader hunters hope to see lows around zero and highs no more than 10-15, but once again, hunting is mostly done out of either a heated box blind or a heated portable ground blind. When it comes to licensing, Non-resident Archery, Muzzleloader, and Rifle permits are sold on a limited basis. This outfitter will will contact you for your application information prior to the release date. They will purchase your permit and stamp for you as soon as they are available to ensure that you get one and that you are in the correct management unit. When it comes to meat processing, your guide will field dress your deer, hang it, and accompany you to the check station, meat processing plant, and taxidermist. You will have the option of paying for the processing and having the meat shipped to you, or paying for the processing and donating the meat to a food bank. Basic processing is around $150 give or take. Trophies will be field caped by your guide but not face caped. You will have the option of having our taxidermist do your work and ship to you or having them simply do the trophy prep and ship to your taxidermist. These taxidermy services are not included in your hunt. Ultimately, this premier whitetail hunt covers all the bases and provides you with an exceptional opportunity at harvesting a once in a lifetime trophy whitetail.
