WHITETAIL ARCHERY HUNTS
Archery hunts in our part of the Midwest can be exciting and very action-packed when done correctly. The terrain in our part of the state consists of large sections of agriculture fields with small woodlots, dry and wet creeks, fence rows, and small sections of land set aside for conservation reserve programs. We take pride in the adjustments we are making for archers visiting Midwest Woodlots Free Range Outfitters since taking over from its original owners.
Our season (although it opens October 1st annually), will start Oct 20th. We have found in the last few years of tracking deer movement patterns regarding the weather, we usually see our first cold push of the season in mid-October. Subsequently, the first big movement of mature bucks is also seen around this time, with does and young bucks continuing their normal patterns all season (regardless of warm or cold temperatures).
At this time of year, the mature bucks start to make their presence known. With increased activity and movement, your chances of seeing a Big Indiana whitetail increase. We wait carefully for the ideal conditions so that we can take full advantage of season-long hunting opportunities. Get ready – you won’t want to miss out on this exciting opportunity!
We are committed to the well-being of our wildlife, and in order to protect their safety and encourage healthy populations, we require a 130′ minimum for any buck. No small bucks or does are to be taken. This helps make sure that our doe population stays put, while also enticing larger bucks into the area.
** For your safety, all Archery hunts—both vertical and crossbow—will be done from ladder stands. There will be no use of lock-on stands at any point during the archery hunt. As an additional precaution, all hunters must bring and use a treestand safety harness whenever they are in a stand.
