Hunt Monster Whitetail Deer in Velvet

Mid August is fast approaching and we are anticipating a great velvet hunt again this season. The bucks we are seeing and catching on the trail cams are growing fast and should be true Missouri giants by then.

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

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.

 

 

 

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.

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.

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.

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.
