HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2016 has been one of our best years to date. We have loved every minute of every hunt, from the velvet hunts in August to the freezing cold hunts we had in December this year. Thank you to all of our hunters for all of the great memories we are looking back on now.

This season we saw the record book rewritten. We had 18 deer score over 300 inches. In those deer were the pending #1 Non-Typical Midwestern Whitetails in Muzzleloader and Crossbow categories.

 

Also the pending #1 Typical Midwestern Whitetail with a muzzleloader was harvested.

Our 2017 starts with a trip to Dallas, Texas. We will be in booth #459 at the Dallas Safari Club Convention, Jan 5-7. Come by and chat.

We will then be heading to Las Vegas, Nevada to the Safari Club International Convention, February 1-4. We would love to see you if you can make it out to either or both of the conventions.

As season closed, we are now looking forward to the 2017 year. We found our first sheds today and will be posting them to our social media sites like we did in 2016. It was fun seeing everyone guessing the scores of the sheds as they came in.

As 2017 progresses don’t hesitate to contact us anytime with any questions or just to chat. We always look forward to hearing from our Oak Creek Family.

With the last month of season here, we are still hunting hard at Oak Creek and our hunters are harvesting some really great deer. This season has been amazing and the deer are breaking records left and right.

Pending #1 Non-Typical Crossbow Midwestern Whitetail in the SCI Recordbook

The Non-Typical Crossbow record fell three times in less than a month. There have been several bucks over the 400 inch mark this year and as we moved into December the average deer harvested on the main ranch was 259″ and on Oak Creek 2 it was 193″, both well above any previous year to date.

This season the ladies have been striking gold with some monster bucks.

With the cold weather finally getting here we are starting to see more of the monster bucks hitting the Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover food plots during the daylight hours.

During the photo tours we are seeing a good amount of bucks and getting the opportunity for a lot of quality photos.

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 11-18

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and at Oak Creek are having a season to be thankful for. We are seeing some of the best bucks we have ever seen here.

This week the camera traps have caught quite a few bucks.

Oak Creek Main Ranch

Oak Creek 2

I have been able to get out on some photo tours of the ranch as well. It is always nice to get the cameras and long lenses out.

It was crazy with rutting action this week. It seemed everywhere you looked there were a couple of bucks chasing a hot doe. This led to great hunting as well.

IT HAS BEGUN!

The rut in central Missouri has started and the giant whitetail bucks at Oak Creek are hitting it hard. They are chasing the does non-stop right now.

In the latest Buck Tracker, we have been catching some big deer that have finally come out of the thick timber and are cruising the food plots. Both ranches have seen multiple bucks for the first time on camera. Click the link to see more trail cam photos from this season.

The Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover food plots are still going good and the does are spending most of their time there. This is proved to be great for the hunters as they are seeing multiple bucks on every sit.

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 10-28

This week has been really good on the cameras. We are seeing several bucks that have not been caught before and they are starting to move really good. Within the next week and a half or so, we should be seeing the rut activity start up. Click here to see more Main Ranch Trail Cam photos and here to see photos from Oak Creek 2.

The Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover is really drawing the deer both night and day. We use it in most of our food plots and are having great success with it.

Another product we are using this season is the HS Vita Rack LickSite. We believe it has been a big reason for the growth and health of our deer.

Both the main ranch and Oak Creek 2 really exploded on the cams this week. The big bucks are coming out of the thick timber now more and more. Rut is not far off.  The guides have seen several bucks chasing does around already.

Hunt of a lifetime!

Our good friend, Hunter Whirley, filmed his and another hunter’s hunt while at Oak Creek. At one point, four bucks over 220 inches are out in front of the stand. What a great group of bachelor bucks.

You can also check it out on any of our social media sites.

Record breaking first month!

JM 426web.jpgThe first month of season has came and went and at Oak Creek, we are having one of our best years ever. We started hard horn hunting on September 15. Both ranches are well above the average for the year and we are seeing some beautiful deer coming in.

On the main ranch, we have seen the pending #6 Non-Typical Midwestern Whitetail harvested, 426”, and another 6 over 300”. The average here is 263 6/8”. It seems everyday we see another record book buck come in off the main ranch. To see the record book bucks of Oak Creek, Click Here!

jontuggle5x7webOak Creek 2 has had one deer over 300” and five more over the 200” mark. That bring OC2 to four bucks over 300” and 27 bucks over 200” in the last two years. The average for the first month of hunting is 210 5/8” on Oak Creek 2.

The 300″ buck was very unique as it was growing two extra antlers on the right side. One right above the eye and another between the main antler and the eye.
