TEXAS WHITETAIL DISCOUNT FOR PRIME NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER DATES.
NORMALLY $3750 NOW ONLY $3000.
An Alabama group that have gone on this hunt the past 13 years have had to
cancel on some prime dates, November 16 to 19. The outfitter has 2 ranches
totaling over 30,000 private-acres, all free-range, located 30 miles south of
San Angelo. You can sit in your tower stand and look over plenty of bucks before
pulling the trigger on this hunt. He takes about 35 hunters per year over the
course of 6 weeks. Success runs near 100% on bucks averaging 135 or better and
the top bucks taken break the 150-inch mark. High deer numbers, nice comfortable
ranch house lodging, good weather and fun guides make up the recipe for a very
enjoyable hunt. 4-day hunt is also available in December with airport pickup in
San Angelo included. If interested in taking advantage of this discount call us
on Hunt WD233.
ALASKA SPRING BLACK BEAR BOAT HUNT HCU’s
Bob Wodzisz, took a couple buddies up on this southeast Alaska black bear
hunt last spring and came away with rave reviews. In fact, both hunters tagged
out on the first day of the hunt. The first bay they started into produced a
bear that squared 6-foot 8-inches. After some picture taking the outfitter
suggested that the other guide and his hunter continue on further back into the
bay before leaving, a good suggestion, as they put a 7-foot 4-inch bear into the
salt. 2014 spring hunts will be available from May 23 to June 5. This is a very
high success hunt priced at only $6,000 for 7 days guided 1x1 with a minimum of
2 hunters or if you have a group of 4 the price drops to $5,500 each guided 2x1.
The hunting area is the Chilkat Peninsula off the mainland just west of Juneau.
There are plenty of bears and we expect success on quality bears to continue at
100 percent. Quite often some halibut and salmon fishing can also be enjoyed
during the hunt. Crab pots are typically dropped so hunters can enjoy some
Alaskan king crab along with fresh clams. Accommodations are on his 48-foot
yacht with 6 bunks and a shower. Hunters fly into Juneau and then to the town of
Hoonah for about $150 roundtrip, where hunters are met. Non-hunters are priced
at $2,500. Next openings are in spring of 2014. Hunt BL957.

Discounted Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear Hunt
This hunt is normally priced at $21,000 and is down to ONLY $16,000 for
this October 1 to 21 and you can stay and hunt the entire season for no extra
cost. This is with a well-known outfitter that consistently takes huge bears.
The fall of 2011 all 8 of his hunters took boars, including a 10-foot 4-inch
bear with a 28 ½-inch skull and 4 more squared out at 9 ½-foot. Fall of 2009 his
12 hunters took 10 bears, 2 hunters left after 7 days of hunting due to personal
commitments. One of the reasons this outfit does so well is they have exclusive
rights to a large section of native land on the south side of the Peninsula that
includes 3 major bays and rivers and also over 30 miles of coastline on the
Pacific side. Hunts can be conducted out of base camp with 4-wheelers or jet
boats, but most time spike camps are utilized. Hunters fly from Anchorage to
Sand Point for about $800 roundtrip, where they are met and flown into base camp
at no additional charge. One opening remains for spring of 2014 priced at
$21,000. The key here you have time to make flight arrangements and change your
schedule to make this hunt this fall, since it is not until October and there is
currently only 7 hunters booked so there is availability to take a buddy. Call
us on Hunt BR781.
It is time to get your Wyoming preference points only. Go to
from July 1st to September 30th.
Here are several hunts that have come available for this fall.
ELK BOW AND GUN Colorado Archery Elk Super High Success
$5,000 on Hunt EKB824.
3 openings have recently opened up on one of our best Colorado archery elk
hunts. They are for the best dates, September 26 to 29, priced at $5,000 guided
2x1, all on private land. This may sound a little pricey for a 4-day horseback
hunt, but read on. In 2012 over the course of his archery hunts this outfitter
had 11 bowhunters tag 7 bulls and 2 were missed. Top bulls grossed 285 and 280
Pope and Young. In 2011 his 12 archers tagged 6 bulls and crippled and lost 6
more, all shots less than 25 yards! In 2010 his 11 bowhunters tagged 10 bulls!
Now the real deal here is they do all spot and stalk. Cabin accommodations,
horseback up the mountain each morning for a day of action packed calling,
moving and stalking, then ride back down the mountain to the cabin every night.
This outfitter runs one of the best archery elk hunts in Colorado. Most bulls
are average 5x5’s with some smaller 6 points being taken.
New Mexico Archery Elk Chase Ranch drops price on Hunt EKB333.
Last fall with the drought the elk watered right near the
ranch making the archery hunt a fantastic opportunity with 6 archers harvesting
4 bulls, including 2 grossing in the 330’s. This year the drought has continued
and we expect the elk to be there again increasing the odds of success on this
bowhunt. The outfitter has dropped the trophy fee by $1,000. September 11 to
15 or September 18 to 22 is $3,750 plus $1,000 trophy fee. 8,000 private acres bordering the famous Veremejo Park, ranch house accommodations, 6-day hunt in northeastern New Mexico
with land owner vouchers included.
The Chase Ranch also has rifle openings for this fall and if 2
or more hunters book we may be able to deal on the price. Call us on Hunt EK333.
WHITETAIL ARCHERY AND RIFLE Our top Kansas outfitter has 3 archery openings
on Hunt WDB662.
This outfitter has plenty of property in northeastern Kansas
and he only takes a very limited amount of hunters. Last fall his 10 archers
tagged 6 bucks including a 172-inch, 155, 2 at 150, 145 and a 125-inch mistake.
5-day hunt, November 4 to 9, house trailer accommodations, meals and airport
pickup is included either at Manhattan or Kansas City airport, all for $3,500.
He has 2 openings for this hunt and only takes up to 3 hunters per hunt. We
would prefer later dates, but the full moon is November 17. For an FYI we have
taken our best rifle bucks with this outfitter.
Alberta archery whitetail 2 spots $3500 or 1 rifle opening at $5000 on Hunt
This outfitter will take 2 archers this fall in either
September or October depending on what dates the hunters prefer. Price is $3,500
for 6 days and if 2 hunters book together he will lower the price. This hunt has
always produced monster bucks on the rifle hunt and it typically has been
rebooked every year so we were not able to get many openings, but this year his
main group from Texas has leased a ranch so we were able to have a couple spots.
He only has 8 tags and 7 are spoken for leaving one opening for anytime from
November 11 to the 30th. Last year they went 5 for 8 and the best bucks gross
scored 200 inches, 182 5x4 w/sticker, 162 4x4 w/26-inch main beams and 13-inch
G-2’s, 150 and a 140 plus buck. 3 deer were passed on in the 150-inch class. 70
percent of the land hunted is private farmland and 30 percent is bush. Heated
tower stands or ground blinds are the main method of hunting. 6-days, lodging,
meals, airport pickup in Edmonton is $5,000 plus license and tax, which is about
$600. Hunt WD832.
TEXAS WHITETAILS ONLY $2500
This is a new outfitter that owns 2,200 free-range acres
in the west Texas hill country, 20 miles north of Junction. They had been in the
cattle business the past 3 generations, but the drought forced them to recently
sell off the livestock. The ranch has not been commercially hunted since 2008.
He is offering hunts from October 1 to February 28 with level 3 Texas Parks and
Wildlife Managed Land Permits. He has 8 hunting blinds with spin-cast feeders.
Modern bunkhouse for accommodations with airport pickup in San Angelo. If you
arrive early the day before the hunt is to start they will allow you to start
early and hunt that evening at no additional cost. We do not expect big bucks to
be taken due to the drought the past 3 years. Mostly 8 pointers in the 110 to
120-inch range. Hunt WD944.
NEW MEXICO PRONGHORNS $2500 with guaranteed Landowner voucher.

which is full. The second week of November has always been a good mule deer hunt
and if a guy wanted to add whitetail on a $2,500 trophy fee he might want to
come the last week of November, which is normally better whitetail hunting.
6-day rifle hunt guided 1x1 is $7000 plus license, tax and preservation fund.

Alberta. Hunters fly into Edmonton and rent a car on
