With the huge popularity of Whitetail hunting, and the very limited rifle season, for the foreign hunter, a hunt on public land would not be viable. Very few mature trophy’s are harvested, that combined with a high failure rate due to the difficulty of Whitetail hunting and the abundance of hunters, meant that we will only hunt Whitetail on private land with 100% draw odds and thus far have had 100% success rates on the hunt, securing some superb trophies.
The Whitetail deer is a wary animal that relies on a keen sense of smell, excellent hearing and eyesight to avoid danger. The deer is aptly named because of the white “flag” on his tail that he shows as he disappears, averting the hunter. Living in groups for added safety for the majority of the year, they are quite a vocal deer, playing an array of grunts and snorts in aggression and rut, and of course that all too familiar whistle indicating that you have been foiled, and pursuit must resume on another day.
As bucks become older, it is said that they become more nocturnal thereby making it harder to shoot during daylight hours. In a species as commonly pursued as Whitetail, the big mature bucks get old, because they have more sense than their peers. Redemption for the hunter however comes in that he is very territorial; it has been said that a whitetail spends his entire life within an 8 mile radius, perhaps using the same bed in a thick piece of cover for months or even years. In the rut bucks do tend do wander more and certainly become more active.
