Best Place to Hunt Whitetails out of state

15 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any one has any good places for hunting whitetail not in Minnesota. Whether it be in Canada the Dakotas or other states just a good all around trip. Kinda looked at the Wayne National Forest in Ohio but just want to get some ideas from some past experiences people have had. It could be a guided hunt or public doesnt matter. Just an all around good place to go. Maybe take in price and distance into the equation. Thanks

Are you thinking public hunting or would you be pondering pay-for-access or guided hunt? One of the magazines, I think field and stream, did a "best public hunting" article across the country based on the deer populations and the relative amoun of public land available.

Outside of that, Southern and SE Iowa area good as well as Illinois. Kansas is also a regular favorite. Personally I don't like hunting in fields so I wouldn't mind hunting N. Wisconsin or Michigan. I also hear the E. coast in pretty hot in areas of Pennsylvania.

I have hunted in northern wisconsin now for 8 years, lots of deer, lots of public land, lots of people on the public land. There are a few big boys out there but once the shooting starts, they are hard to move in the day light hours! I have always came home with more then enough meat in the medium size deer.

Although my first choice is canada!

When I was in Montana hunting Elk everywhere we drove that had a river bottom had some BIG whitetails. This was in the Lewistown area. Almost all of the land that we seen the whitetails in was private. Although I am sure there is good public hunting around. I will never forget that scene. The hunter was sitting on top of a round hay bale overlooking the river bottom with about 100 whitetails feeding.

There are alot of great whitetail hunts available all over the US and Canada, it just depends on what you are looking for exactly. We offer hunts in NW Ontario and we have some real good quality bucks and light hunting pressure in the area we hunt. It is remote bush country and treestand hunting is the best method. www.gatewaynorthoutfitters.net

Honestly, if you have the money, the place really does not seem to matter anymore....within reason I guess. Anywhere that you can find good whitetail management will produce trophy bucks. It all about age, nutrition, and some genetics. The biggest factor is age, let them grow to 4.5 to 5.5 years and most will be trophy caliber. Good luck!

I think Superbee should become a sponsor for the free advertising

I lived in South Central KS for 5 yrs, there are some monsters. But no public land, lots of outfitters, and leased land, so it will cost $$$$$.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
