Guided Whitetail Deer Hunting

To ensure our guests a quality hunting experience, we spend all year scouting the thousands of acre's we control in Elk County, Chautauqua County, and Cowley County. By doing this, we stay on top of deer patterns and movements.

Spring finds us shed hunting - looking for "White Gold" - the prized antlers of bucks that have made it through another season. We install hundreads of acres of spring and fall food plots each year - all of which are strategically placed for bucks to feel comfortable during daylight hours, and to provide the deer with added nutrition throughout the year.

Trophy Class Deer Herds

Deer numbers are on the rise, which has pushed the buck to doe ratio to 1:2. It is common to see more bucks than doe's on any given day.

We want our young bucks to reach maturity so we hold a 135" minimum on harvested bucks, and have instituted an immature buck fine when a hunter grossly underestimates size. We want you to kill a mature buck in the 4-6 year class, when they've reached their full potential. Every year 160"-200"+ bucks are harvested in and around this region of Kansas. Our land has many of these trophy deer, and if you have the patience to pass on the young ones you might get a shot at a Kansas giant.

Fertile Hunting Land

We lease 30 different ranches across 3 different counties, covering more than 34,000 acres in the southern portion of the Flint Hills region of Kansas. This region of Kansas, is nationally known for grass fed cattle. The minerals and nutrients that grow great cattle also grow great deer!

From fertile farm land to heavy timbered draws, to open pastures and tree choked fence lines. Creek bottoms lined with White Oaks or a occasional persimmon grove. Black jack covered hill tops or scattered cedar thickets.

The varying terrain provides the ample minerals and nutrients that it takes to produce trophy class buck.
