Best Place to Hunt Whitetails out of state


Gforce

Recommended Posts

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 $$$$$.

      Last weekend I was monitoring a bay on Tonka whether people were still driving out. I saw 6-7 vehicles. In one spot there were 4 trucks with 3 wheel houses. One of the houses was 20 ft+. On Sunday I arrived to see the sheriff put up a thin ice sign that 6 vehicles had driven past.   I returned to fish it last Wednesday late afternoon with 4 vehicles already out. Drove to the spot I fished 2 other times in the last month and drilled the first hole. LiveScope showed the fish 30-50 feet away. Drilled a cluster of 5 holes in that spot and game on. It was almost as fast as you could put your line down. A lot of up bites. After it slowed down on the small jigging spoon, I switched to a 4mm tungsten jig and caught more. The fish shifted 10 feet away once where one of the other holes was and then went back to the initial hole. For crappie, I ended up with a 13, a couple 12s, couple 11s, three 10s and a handful of 9s. Also 4 bluegill either side of 8” plus several smaller of both species. All fish were released. The pictures I posted are the 13 with me, both 12s an 11 and a dink. I measured them on a Li’l Dipper which is accurate from the middle of the hole at the top of the handle. I am going to order a Ketch board. The rod for the tungsten jig is a Tickle Stick and for the spoon a Panfish Sweetheart.   All three times I’ve fish this spot the big fish move out about 60-90 minutes before dark. I suppose they are moving to a different area (weedline?) to feed. If I get out to this spot again this year I’ll try and figure out where. When I drove off the bay there were still 6 other vehicles out.

      Yup. Bullseye on the Ricochet . Bit o simple St Pats humor as that’s how I live n guess this flows thru my fingers.   Always interesting to see how close guesses are here.   where my island is clears out before the bay n large sections of lake so that is fun also. In past a few times last 28 years I hit it right on. Silly icy fun Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T
