You will be hunting on a 1,500 acre hunting preserve populated by the finest trophy whitetail bucks in the nation. All of our hunting packages include lodging and meals. Every hunter will be personally guided by one of our professionally trained guides.
Our Preserve has heated and unheated box blinds, traditional ground blinds, and tree stands. There are a vast number of natural food plots scattered throughout the preserve.
We offer an illuminated outdoor shooting range for our guests who arrive at night and wish to hunt at the crack of dawn the following morning.
In addition to hunting all guests are welcome to fish on our ponds that are heavily stocked with Walleye, Trout, Bass and Perch.
All hunts require a non-refundable 50% deposit when booked. The remaining balance is due upon arrival. Non-hunting guest will pay a $150 per day fee - all meals and lodging included.
All whitetail bucks taken will be scored at the ranch using the SCI gross score to determine the final fee pricing. Wounded animals or any animals leaving a blood trail will be charged the same as a kill.
Prior to any hunting, you will be required to demonstrate shooting skills at our rifle range. We have built a lighted outdoor shooting range for our guests who arrive at night and wish to hunt the next day. Our Wildlife Management Staff has enabled Apple Creek Whitetails Ranch the opportunity to harvest 200+ inch B&C bucks with genetics capable of producing whitetails into the 300+ class. Our 1,500+ acre hunting preserve offers some of the finest oak flats and ridges, red pines, cedar swamps and agricultural fields available.
