Your Indiana Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunt starts off with us providing you breakfast and getting you introduced to your whitetail guides and talk about the plan for the morning deer hunt. Some hunters will walk out to the hunting blinds and others will use an ATV. If you have any issues with not being able to walk very far let us know and we are equipped to take you out with the ATVs to your hunting blind. Most of our Indiana whitetail deer hunts are out of box blinds. We also have ladder stands. If a hunter chooses, he can bring a climber or lock on stand. We do prefer our box blinds and ladder stands but will do what the hunter is comfortable with.
Once you get to the deer hunting blind you will be able to sit and relax, drink your coffee, and watch the sun come up over the hardwoods and pines. You may be sitting in a blind that is looking over a hillside down toward a pond filled with geese, visualizing your Trophy Buck walking the edge of the pond. You could be sitting in a hardwoods funnel waiting for your buck to come through. Using the box blinds, you can move around a little bit to stay comfortable.
On all of our Indiana Guided Deer Hunts we will be available to help you judge and field score your trophy buck that will meet or exceed your expectations. Occasionally we do spot and stalk if the situation comes up, and that is what the hunter would like to do. We hunt over food plots and in the cover of the woods. We will come in for a light lunch and let the hunters relax. Grabbing your favorite rifle, bow, crossbow, or muzzleloader, then back out for the evening deer hunt.
Once you harvest your trophy whitetail deer, we will skin it, clean it, and quarter it for you to take home. If you like, we have a meat processor and taxidermist available to take care of your meat and to mount your trophy to your specifications.
In your spare time we can also arrange for Additional Hunting Activities like a half or full day pheasant hunt or a hundred target sporting clay course at an additional charge. You can also make some time to take in the sites here in Indiana. Notre Dame or Shipshewana are close by if you want to check out Amish food and crafts. The Amish have their own AMAZING homemade donuts, cookies, pies, and other baked goods, along with handcrafted furniture. Definitely worth checking out and this makes a nice activity for non-hunting guests to enjoy as well!
Our Deer Hunting Lodge guests have a few options for their accommodations. First there is beautiful Swan Lake Resort that is only five minutes away from the Ranch as a Lodging option. They have a full bar and restaurant, along with a pool and weight room. There are also various hotels in Plymouth, Indiana to choose from, just six minutes away. Plymouth also has its own airport that you can fly small planes into, and we can pick you up from there as well. Transportation is also available to and from South Bend airport.
