Treestand Hunts

treestand revisedThis guided deer hunt is exclusively a stand hunt from climbing treestands. This method of deer hunting is often the most effective way to bag these northwoods monsters. Hunters must be patient and persistent while keeping warm and staying focused. They are encouraged to stay on stand as long as possible. The most successful hunters stay in their stand all day and come prepared to hunt that way all week.

Deer stands are located in quality areas with higher deer densities and travel routes. These areas are scouted and stand locations prepared before the season begins. Some stands require walking up to a mile or more from the nearest gravel road.

Climbing treestands are practiced with guide upon arrival on Sunday. This practice session helps hunters use their treestand safely and quietly, and builds confidence for those hunters that are new to this type of treestand. For our clients comfort and safety, a treestand harness will be provided and a tree umbrella is available on rainy days.

We offer several treestand hunts throughout the season. All hunts are six days in duration (Monday thru Saturday).

Rifle Season

This is the ideal deer hunt for the hunter that wants to maximize their chance at a monster buck within their 6 day hunt. This season is during the rut when bucks are roaming often. Spending all day on stand keeps you on the action constantly with the advantages of the elevated treestand and wind direction. $1200/person, 6 Hunters max/week, mixed groups

Archery Season

This early season Maine whitetail hunt catches the big bucks at their maximum weight before the rut kicks in. Come hunt 200 LB bucks with your bow! $1400/person, 4 Hunters max/week, mixed groups

Muzzleloader Season

This late season deer hunt can be very productive as bucks travel afar searching for the last receptive does. There is usually snow on the ground and the cooler weather keeps deer active.

$1800/person, 4 Hunters (mixed groups)
$1600/person, 5 Hunters (mixed groups)
$1400/person, 6 Hunters (mixed groups)

4 hunters minimum, 6 maximum
