This destination sits in the heart of the Nebraska sandhills in the central part of the state. With 80,000 + acres of prime deer habitat, this venue has a long history of producing trophy class animals. Hunts are conducted spot & stalk style with the use of good quality optics picking apart this vast rolling countryside and river bottoms in search of a good mature trophy. Primarily a trophy Mule deer destination, a hunter could stumble into a trophy whitetail buck also while afield. Nebraska rifle deer tags are purchased over the counter and are valid for any antlered deer, giving the hunter the opportunity to capitalize on the encounter of either a trophy Mule deer or whitetail buck.
The lodge itself is worth the trip! An architectural dream filled with natural woods, this venue is warm and inviting. Spectacular rooms with a fantastic social space to reminisce about the day afield, this is great destination for both individual and corporate travelers looking for the best. Space is limited, give WTA a call to reserve your spot today.
