Whitetail Deer Hunts

Guided 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 10,000+ 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, the first hunt after our Early Season September 21-25 hunt will start October 12th. The Oct 26th  hunt will be our first full main hunt. Any groups of 4 or more that want any other date prior to these October hunts, please contact us for availability.

Weapons & Permits

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.

To get more information on Missouri hunting permit costs, visit the Missouri Department of Conservation website and search for whitetail to view the available hunting permits:

If you happen to be a Medically Retired Veteran give the Missouri Dept. of Conservation (1-800-392-4115) a call and see about receiving nonresident permits for the price of a Missouri resident.
