Many times hunters in quest of a "Best of Class SCI Trophy Whitetail", will follow their friends to new hunting areas and outfitters either on recommendation or the knowledge of a friend's success. Hunters looking for a truly amazing Northern Whitetail have flocked to Wilderness Whitetails ever since hunters realized that Wilderness is the most consistent producer of impressive world record typical and non-typical Whitetails in North America with non-typical scores ranging from the mid 300's to 492 typicals consistently in the high 180's to nearly 260.
Beyond the magnificent high ranking bucks Wilderness Whitetails has produced, it is overall the Wilderness Whitetail experience. It's an experience like no other. The experience is everything and it's what hunting is all about. Wilderness Whitetails has spent the last 30 years creating the most unique and unrivaled Whitetail hunting experience in the world, as our hunters will attest to. (See Testimonials).
Unlike most Whitetail ranches, Wilderness Whitetails deer spend their entire lives out on the vast property that ranges from dense stands of pines to impenetrable cedar swamps tall timber and rolling hills thick with hardwoods to more open heavy grassy areas. Wilderness Whitetails deer are real wild deer. They truly live their lives in the wild , in the wilderness. No deer are ever brought into Wilderness Whitetails. They are all born here, live here and learn the 1,000-plus acre fair chase property and how to elude our hunters. There are huge 8 and 9-year bucks on the property that we never or rarely see.
Hunters can expect a real hunting experience, a challenging hunt to see a lot of big deer and having to put their time when trying to collect a massive new #1 SCI. Wilderness Whitetails offers two lodges capable of handling large corporate groups or smaller private family and friend gatherings.
Wilderness Whitetails is set up for all methods of take…rifle, muzzleloader, archery, handgun. Comfortable spacious blinds, strategically located in key travel routes and feeding areas await you. For archery and handgun hunters Wilderness Whitetails offers more than 30 tree stands plus numerous ground blinds that will allow you to get up close and personal with your future trophy buck. As any bowhunter knows, there is nothing to compare to experience a monster 200” or 300” trophy Whitetail walk by you at eye level!
Greg and Shorty Flees, as well as all of the Wilderness Whitetails guides are passionate bowhunters so we know where to set stands to present archery and handgun hunters the best opportunity to harvest the trophy of their dreams. Wilderness Whitetails knowledge of movement patterns, timing allows its hunters to be extremely successful in their quest to harvest a huge Whitetail buck with a gun, bow, handgun or muzzle loader. Over they years more than 90% of our archery hunters have enjoyed success. One of our archery hunters too a giant 311-5/8” buck a while back that held the SCI #1 World Record Book ranking for several years.
If for whatever reason, weather, slow movement…and archery hunting becomes difficult… the hunter can elect to use one of the ranch rifles to collect his trophy.
"I highly recommend Wilderness Whitetails to any serious Whitetail hunter. It’s a first class experience from every viewpoint. Whether it is the great accommodations and great food or the gorgeous property itself. The deer are beyond belief! It is ‘Whitetail Heaven’ with the perfect Whitetail environment that makes this a challenging hunt for that special dream Whitetail."
"With a little patience a hunter has the opportunity to harvest that once in a lifetime buck. The buck I took is the largest I have taken in over 30 years of hunting the elusive Whitetail.
I will make it back!"
