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 9-23

23kIt has been a great week at Oak Creek. Our hunters are tagging incredible bucks and we are seeing more bucks than ever on the cams now.

The temperatures have been extremely high for late September, but the deer are still moving in early morning and late evening. We had a couple of days that the heat index has been in the high 90’s and low 100’s. The weather is supposed to cool off this weekend and should have 70’s next week.

One good thing about this hot, wet weather the Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover is really green and lush right now and the deer are really using it.

We caught some on them on trail cam. It made for some very cool photos. Several big typical and non-typical bucks showed themselves and we added a couple more to the hitlist for the year.

The season has begun and the monster bucks have really started moving now that they most are done shedding their velvet. We are getting more shots of them out of sanctuary areas.

pict5209We also finally caught a shot of a big palmated buck on the cams this week. We had seen him a couple of times this summer but had never seen him on the cams.

PICT5070.jpgIf you are looking for drop tines, this buck would make your dreams come true. He has two on the right side and one on the left, plus good width and tine length.

The weather this summer has been perfect for growing huge racks. There has been enough rain to keep the food plots growing good all summer and the heat has not been too high, with only a couple of days near 100 degrees.

The Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover has been knee high and lush green all summer. It has kept the deer looking slick all summer long. To show the effectiveness of the food plots this summer, in this last set of photos the cameras averaged over 1000 shots in a three day period.

An addition to the Monster Buck Tracker this week is one of the Monster Bulls on the Ranch. We are estimating him at over 370″, with a unique non-typical point at his base.

Nature Blind Stump Feeder

Our Nature Blinds Stump Feeder is keeping them coming back over and over. It has kept the deer looking slick and in great shape all summer long. We have seen a deer that has plenty to eat, without the stress of finding food, the buck will most definitely produce a larger rack and the does raise a much better fawn.

Our BIG OAK FEEDER™ from Nature Blinds holds 200 pounds of corn and propels corn or other feed up to 20 yards. The solar powered feeder is one of our best investments this season. This 25 plus inch wide buck was under the stand checking the feeder, but never presented a shot to the hunter.
