September – November 5-day hunts
Archery hunt the scenic Sheyenne River and Bald Hill Creek valleys of southeast North Dakota for trophy whitetail deer. This outfitter controls and owns several thousand acres of private land occupying several miles of river bottoms, rolling hills, CRP and wooded ravines. Their intense management practices have proven one thing: big bucks.
Hunts are conducted out of sturdy ladder stands over food plots, tree rows or wooded draws. The State of North Dakota allows hunters to hunt over baited areas; thus, it is not uncommon to see several deer per outing. All hunts are conducted in the morning and evening when the deer are moving from bedding to feeding areas. Over the past years shooting opportunities have been extremely high and most patient hunters will have a good chance at seeing a P&Y class buck.
Accommodations are first class with their newly constructed 6,000 square foot lodge. The lodge offers double or single occupancy with home-cooked meals served daily. This is the perfect location for hunters looking to hunt with their own group in a smaller first class setting. Due to the exclusivity of the lodge and the limited number of deer hunters per year early reservations are a must. This outfitter limits only takes 12 archery hunters per year so early reservations are a must.
