Whitetail in Velvet
Jumped this monster whitetail buck in velvet earlier this week.

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.

February at the Ranch

PICT0490.jpg
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.

There are a limited number of spots available on both ranches, and also a few elk and sika hunts available.  Call now to get information on these great hunts, 573-943-6644, or go to our website, www.oakcreekwhitetailranch.com.

 

 

 

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.

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. Give us a call today, 573-943-6644

Now it is time to laser focus on getting everything ready for the 2017 season. We are cleaning up, this winter has been pretty hard on the trees with the wind and ice we have had. It seems like there is always something that needs working on.

There are a limited number of spots available on both ranches, and also a few elk and sika hunts available.  Call now to get information on these great hunts, 573-943-6644, or go to our website, www.oakcreekwhitetailranch.com.

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.
