Book Your Hunt



The Hunt

Our goal at Shallow Creek Outfitters is not to be the biggest corporate operation around...our goal is to be the best at providing our clients with an opportunity at a trophy buck.  Two major factors must be present to achieve this goal, a quality tract of land and low pressure.  Shallow Creek operates on the land holdings of one of the largest agricultural operations in the region. During the antler growing season bucks are feasting on crops consisting of milo and wheat as well as natural browse such as bluestem that is very high in protein.  Large parcels of corn silage are also planted providing a tremendous amount of cover for the deer.  At harvest time, crops are left standing in strategic locations for wildlife usage.  Three creeks intersect on our property providing a great source of water and miles of creek bottom which hold many mast bearing trees.  Additionally, we have established mineral sites and supplement the heard with food plots and corn.

The landowner has never allowed anyone to hunt this property outside of himself. This means we have thousands of acres that have never been pressured resulting in a very good age structure with many mature bucks.  Since they have never been pressured, our deer move during daylight hours, rarely look up, and will even ignore human scent many times.  Our plan is to maintain the low pressure status by severely limiting the number of hunters we book.  With the amount of land we have and the health of our heard many operations would book 50 hunters or more each year.  We will never exceed 20 hunters per year. Not only does this severely limit the pressure put on the herd, but it also keeps the numbers low enough so that we can provide you with the attention you need.  

As great as our deer hunting is, it’s still fair chase hunting and we are at the mercy of mother nature and plain old luck.  However we do what we can to stack the odds in your favor.  Once you arrive there is no substitute for time on stand.  We are looking for serious hunters who are committed to do what it takes to harvest a trophy buck.
