With the first hunt of the season behind us and the growing season winding down for 2016, the bucks we have been seeing are some of the best we have seen in a long time.
The weather this summer has been perfect for growing huge racks. There has been enough rain to keep the food plots growing good all summer and the heat has not been too high, with only a couple of days near 100 degrees.
The Hunter’s Specialties Vita Rack Clover has been knee high and lush green all summer. It has kept the deer looking slick all summer long. To show the effectiveness of the food plots this summer, in this last set of photos the cameras averaged over 1000 shots in a three day period.
Our BIG OAK FEEDER™ from Nature Blinds holds 200 pounds of corn and propels corn or other feed up to 20 yards. The solar powered feeder is one of our best investments this season. This 25 plus inch wide buck was under the stand checking the feeder, but never presented a shot to the hunter.
If you have ever thought about hunting a whitetail in velvet, this is the year. There are a couple of spots left during our very limited velvet season at Oak Creek. Click here to see the bucks harvested during the 2015 season, will you be on this season’s list.
No matter what kind of deer is your favorite, wide, tall, typical, drop tines, non-typical, your dream deer is going to be at Oak Creek this season. Our season started August 15th with our limited velvet hunts and goes until the end of December. For more information on the deer or your hunt of a lifetime, give us a call anytime @ 573-943-6644
