Whitetail
The whitetail are hunted on approximately 60,000+ acres of private leases in Crook County, Wyoming. We feel we have put together large leases of some of the very best whitetail country in the county. We have had most of these leases for over 25 years.

Bow season runs September 1–30. Our bow hunts are the classic tree-stand hunts, using over 150 portable, lock-on type stands. We scout all summer long, locating stand locations for the opening of the season. As the season unfolds, we continue to scout every day to change stand locations as needed. We feel we give the bow hunter an excellent chance at P&Y class bucks.

Over the past 25 years our bow hunters average around 70% success. The shooting opportunity at P&Y class deer is about 90%.

The 2018 bow season was another successful season. Our hungers again enjoyed 100% opportunity. 48 hunters harvested 34 bucks for a 71% harvest rate. Hunters were 42 for 48 shooting. This includes several missed deer.

Our 2017 bow season went very well. There were a lot of bucks seen from the stands, and we had 44 hunters who harvested 30 bucks. They were 36 for 44 shooting, with 100% opportunity. This includes 18 misses.

The 2016 bows season was another success. Even with the extremely dry conditions, the hunters were very successful. There was definitely a few inches taken off the average horn growth due to drought. However, with the excellent buck numbers and age, the next couple of years should be excellent. This fall we had 45 whitetail bow hunters and harvested 34 mature bucks for a 75% success rate with 39 for 45 shooting opportunity for a 86% shooting rate (this includes 17 misses). The largest buck taken was a 158 P&Y.

Our rifle season takes place the month of November. Our hunts are guided either 2x1 or 1x1. We use a few different methods of hunting, including closed-in box stands, blinds, still hunting, rattling, and spot and stalk. Over the years our hunters have averaged 90% to 100% success.

The 2018 rifle season was very successful. We took a total of 36 hunters and harvested 34 bucks. Again, we were 100% opportunity. We are seeing a lot of deer and again looks promising for 2019. Largest buck taken was a 164 B&C.

The 2017 rifle season was great, with 40 hunters harvesting 39 bucks. Again, they were 100% opportunity. There was quite a lot of shooting, with some missed opportunities on some really good deer. Lots of bucks were seen throughout November, and it is looking good for the 2018 season.

During our 2016 rifle season we had 40 hunters who had 100% shooting opportunity and harvested 38 buck deer. This includes 14 misses and 4 cripples on some outstanding deer. The numbers of deer are high, but the drought did affect the overall horn growth. The largest deer taken was a 155 B&C.

The fee for a license is $374.00. The drawing odds in our whitetail area has been 100% for several years. License fees and dates are subject to change according to Wyoming Game and Fish. We assist all our hunters with the license application process.
