Archery – September 1-December 31
Muzzleloader – December 1-31
During archery season we are typically hunting out of a treestand. We use lock-on and ladder stands. All of the lock-on (hang ons) are all well secured and we use climbing sticks to get into all of them. No screw in steps, other than the occasional one or two used to safely get you from the sticks into the stand. All stands use a life-line system for your harness, so from the time you leave the ground to when you come back down you are tied into the tree in case of a fall. Treestand harness are REQUIRED in all stands and it’s non negotiable. We do not provide safety harnesses for you, you must bring your own. Be sure to get one that is rated for your weight and fitted for you. It’s your responsibility to purchase the correct harness and know how to operate it. All stands will have some kind of a seat cushion on them, but feel free to bring your own accessories. If you don’t like treestands, we also have ground blind options. On a guided hunt, we will pick you up in the morning and take you to your stand, then return to pick you up before lunch at the time agreed upon. The guide will not be sitting in the blind/stand with you. If you would like the guide to be with you in the stands please let us know ahead of time so we can arrange for doubles. When we are ambushing or spot/stalking the guide will accompany you. We typically do not let hunters spot and stalk on their own. For semi-guided hunters, we will check in with you day to day but the transportation to and from the stand is your responsibility. Crossbows are legal in Nebraska for everyone.
During the late muzzleloader season we will utilize blinds, both pop up and hard sided. Chairs will be provided in all of the blinds and we try to keep quality chairs. No tripod stools from us. Ladder stands may be used, but its not typical. Buddy heaters will be provided with fuel canisters in all of the blinds for you. We typically see a lot of deer each day on this hunt and we have the option to be more mobile during hunting. We will pick you up and drop you off in the blinds, unless we are being more mobile and in that case a guide will be with you. Nebraska does not have restrictions for muzzlelaoders and scopes may be used.
Please come into the hunt with a positive attitude! I believe we greatly increase your odds for a shot opportunity, however it is free-range hunting and things out of everyone’s control happen occasionally. We’ve been hunting these ranches for over 10 years and will continue putting you in what we believe is the best place possible for an opportunity. Thank you for trusting in us!
– We strongly recommend you giving us a call or text after you have shot an animal BEFORE you go looking for it. We are typically not far from you. We know this place like the back of our hands and we watch the animals here 365 days a year. Having us a part of the recovery is important and may be the difference between finding your animal, or ending your hunt unsuccessfully.
– We enforce a “drawn blood” policy. If you fire an arrow or a shot and draw blood on the animal, that is your animal. If we aren’t successful in a recovery of it, your hunt is over. You may not continue hunting. We understand that things happen, but we don’t have an unlimited supply of animals.
– Must shoot before hunting. This goes for all weapons. When you arrive to camp you need to check your weapon for accuracy. For archery hunters, we’d like to see you shoot a target at the distance you would shoot at an animal. This gives us a better idea of shooting ability and allows us to put you in better situations.
– Treestand harnesses must be worn at all times. Harnesses are not provided for you, they’re your responsibility
