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.

Whitetail in Velvet

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.

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.

 

 

 

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 11-11

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.

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.

Oak Creek Monster Buck Tracker 9-15-16

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.
