We are pleased to offer a limited number of private ranch whitetail deer hunts in Idaho.
We have a lengthy season starting the beginning of September for archery and finishes up the end of November for rifle. We have been managing ranches for trophy deer for the last 20 years and know what it takes to produce a quality deer herd. Good feed and light pressure makes for excellent deer hunting every time. We hunt mature bucks in the 130-150 inch range and second tags are available if you score early and would like to keep hunting.
We have two different archery whitetail hunts in archery. One early season from August 30th until September 30th and a late bow season from December 5th until December 30th. Both are great whitetail hunts, the early, basically late summer hunt will be spent in stands hunting bucks in their summer feeding patterns. The late hunt is a cold weather hunt with plenty of action because we will be following the deer migration. It’s colder than the September hunt, but you get to see a lot of quality bucks moving from the high country into their winter feeding grounds. The late archery whitetail hunt is also a great combo hunt opportunity with our mountain lion hunts. I recommend a bow with a minimum 55 pound draw weight for our heavy bodied bucks and a 100-125 grain fixed blade broad head will be sufficient.
Our whitetail deer rut in Idaho pretty much runs the month November and that’s when we concentrate on our big bucks. Most of the time will be spent in stands watching food sources the does frequent in hopes to see a big, mature buck. Every once in a while a good buck will be spotted out of rifle range, however, and at that point you may need to be able to do some hiking to get within shooting range. On this hunt, obviously, the longer you can sit the stand the better your chances are. In the rut, bucks will be moving all day, so make sure to bring a good warm hunting suite and we’ll be sure you have plenty of snacks and anything else you may need to get you through the day.
Our whitetail deer hunts are fully guided and outfitted and will all be based out of our rustic and comfortable lodge. All meals and comforts of home will be provided. Please let us know ahead of time if you have any food allergies so we can prepare meals accordingly and be sure to bring any personal medications you need for the duration of your stay.
