Oak Creek Buck Tracker 8-31-2017

The velvet season has come to an end and now we are watching the bucks as they shed the velvet and go into hard horn. We have already seen some that are clean, but most are just getting ready to start. We can’t wait to see these monsters in hard horn.

Hunting season starts here in two weeks. We are filling up fast, so if you are still looking for that hunt of a lifetime. Give us a call, 573-943-6644 for information. If you would like a brochure, send us your address and we will get one out to you.

Make sure not to miss the first Elk Tracker of the season. We have been waiting for them to shed their velvet to start them.

The velvet season went very well, the largest buck was over 480″. These will be showcased in an upcoming blog in a couple of days.

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 6-20-2017

IMG_1471June has been better than we could even imagine. We have seen several bucks that are over 25 inches inside and some even pushing 30 inches. The jump from the last Monster Buck Tracker is huge. This year has been perfect for antler growth.

First, the winter was rather mild and the bucks came out in really good shape. Then it warmed up and the food plots sprang to life and gave them a great early start to growth. Now the Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover has already been mowed once and is knee high again.

June is always the month we really can see the growth kick into high gear. They have gone from adding inches a week to inches a day. We are already seeing bucks that have us really excited. Several look like they will blowing up the record books come this fall.

This year we have only a few spots left for velvet hunts in August. If you have not tried this it is something you need to do this year. Call us for info on the hunts and dates available.

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 6-1-2017

As the end of May passes us by, the bucks are still doing great. We still believe this is going to be the best season to date as the bucks are well ahead of last years record breaking season.

 

So far we are very happy with both the Bushnell TrophyCam HD Aggressors and Reconyx Ultrafire cameras. They both have superb quality of photo and video. If you are in need of new cameras or any other sporting goods, Denny Dennis Sporting Goods in St. Louis is our spot of choice. Tell him Oak Creek sent you.M2E179A1L236-168.5910034-168.5910034

This season the Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover food plots are doing tremendously. It is already over boot top high and drawing in the deer and other animals in huge numbers.

February at the Ranch

Young buck dropped at the Lick Site.

February has been great at the ranch, we have found some amazing sheds, checked the cams and been watching several young bucks that have not dropped yet. It has been a very busy time as we are now getting ready to plant our food plots, fix the roads and everything that the winter had messed up.

It has been a couple of days since we have had a chance to go out and shed hunt, but it looks to be slowing down. There have been only a few showing up on the cams with the headgear. For more sheds we have found this season click here!pict0163

The food plots held up great throughout the winter and the deer are looking really good as they come out of the hard times of winter. They have gained back most of the weight they had lost and are getting ready to grow their monster racks and have their fawns. Make sure to keep watching the blog and our other media pages as they spring and summer progress.

One of the younger elk and a sika are still holding their headgear also. Hopefully we will be able to find them when they do finally drop.

 

PICT0474.jpgOne of the best things about running the cameras all year long is getting to see all the different animals that use our camera traps. We have been seeing quite a few turkey on the ranch and it is getting us itching for turkey season.

 

 

Our first hunts will again be in the middle of August as we will be hunting monster whitetails in velvet for a few exclusive hunts. If you were thinking about joining us for the premier velvet hunt in the country, the spots are filling up quickly.

Show Season is Over, Time for Shed Hunting

screen-shot-2017-02-01-at-11-38-45-amWe would like to thank everyone who came by and saw us at the conventions this season. It was great seeing you and catching up.

Both DSC and SCI went great and we had good weather for the trips there and back.

We have begun to find some sheds and they are really giving us great expectations for 2017 and upcoming years. We have cameras out year round to monitor our herds, so as soon as we get photos with dropped antlers, we start looking. Two weeks in we have found some great sheds. Check out these, and let us know what you think!

This set scored almost 200″net. In the photos he was at least 25″ wide inside. He will be something to really watch in the 2017 season. We may have the next Typical Record!

This monster typical set scored 194”. With photos we have of him, he looked to be over 25” wide. Just imagine this monster buck walking under your stand next season. Going around 225-230” this time, what do you think he will score next season? Could we have the next Typical World Record Buck? Oh and we are still waiting on a bigger typical to drop. Stay tuned to Facebook and our other social media pages to see the sheds as they come in.

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 12-8

last-opening-ad

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.
