Muzzleloader Hunt

After the big wave of the rut has come and gone, this time of the year is about food! Cold weather is the biggest determining factor in this season… Like firearms, the muzzleloader season is 16 days long and always starts on a Saturday and ends on a Sunday. We hunt from box blinds in or around agriculture fields or transitions. The cycle is gradually working toward the center of big chunks of ground, however, you may also see us start to work the very outside edges such as fields between a woodlot and creek or some farmhouses. These fields haven’t been visited by the deer feeding yet as they are further from cover. Our small woodlots are leafless and at times nearly see-through making box blinds, heaters, and a packed lunch a must.

Nothing compares to the moments before daybreak when the world is still quiet and calm. As the afternoon arrives, big game movements happen – but not always at the same time. So if you find yourself at a blind with no deer in sight, have patience! We’ve found that our biggest trophy bucks are often taken with muzzleloaders during this season. That’s why we carefully manage our hunting grounds to give our clients only the best opportunities for success. So grab your smoke pole and join us here at Midwest Woodlots Free Range Outfitters to chase some December Whitetails!
