Deer Meadows Outfitters Logo

In the beautiful northwest part of Nebraska, Deer Meadows offers a variety of hunts for your hunting experience. The scenic Sandhills along the wide-open meadows are a hunter's paradise. We hunt on only privately owned prime hunting ground and our goal is to give you a hunting experience that can't be matched. Back at camp, our comfortable ranch style lodge doesn't have a big screen or a crackling fireplace but it does offer home cooked meals, a hot shower,  soft bed, and WIFI.

 

Our hunt varieties include management, trophy, and elite style hunts. These hunts are offered to accommodate all hunter's needs and budgets. Management bucks are bucks that are not wanted in the gene pool and do not have the genetics to produce trophy offspring. Trophy bucks are mature bucks that do not have the genetics to go elite, but are still heavy antlered trophy class bucks that any hunter would be proud to have on their wall. Elite bucks are mature bucks that have super good genetics and high antler quality. Our management practices allow us to harvest a limited number of each caliber of buck. Our management practices are what has made us successful and what sets us apart from other outfitters. With this management practice we do not harvest all bucks, but leave bucks with great genetics to cover the does. This is how we maintain a high success rate with quality bucks harvested every year. Please remember this is fair chase hunting and we no control over the weather, the animals, or any other circumstances out of our control.

 

 

Guides

Our guides have extensive knowledge of the deer herds and their movements. With the different physical abilities of all hunters, we try to work with the hunter to provide them a hunt to be remembered. We scout and monitor the deer patterns to offer you only the best opportunities. We provide transportation to and from the lodge and will be with you every step of the way. We will also care for your trophy after it's down. Professionally performed caping and skinning of your game will be provided. We do our best to accommodate requests for specific guides on a first-come-first-serve basis. In these situations, an extra charge is necessary for one-on-one guiding.

 

Rifle Hunts

Our rifle season starts in the middle of November and runs for nine days through the main rut for Nebraska. This hunt is very rewarding. On our vast privately owned ranches, we keep the number of hunters to a minimum to give everyone plenty of room to roam.  Call early for reservations, as this hunt books quickly.

Bow Hunts

Our archery season runs from September through October. The weather is usually warm with cool nights in September and October. Crossbows are legal in Nebraska. Either way, the hunting is great and done spot and stalk style.

 

Muzzleloader Hunts

We run our black powder season the first two weeks of December. The deer feed and move about most of the day. You do hunt spot and stalk so bring your optics. The temperature at this time of year is usually cold, so dress warm. (More on muzzleloader hunts.)

 

Policies

 

  • All processing of the deer you kill is your own responsibility even if you are going to donate it. (Processing price varies by year and there is a small fee to have the deer caped)
  • There are no "last day deer" at Deer Meadows Outfitters. If you shoot a buck that is smaller than the guidelines, your guide will be fined $500 for a small deer kill.
  • A wounded deer, even if it's not recovered, is considered a kill, and your tag will be filled.
  • Opening an alcoholic beverage ends that day's hunt.
  • If you are found to have any illegal substances you will be asked to leave and you will forfeit your hunt.
  • Prices do not include guide or cook gratuities, they work hard to give you the best service possible.
  • Your deposit is non-refundable. It guarantees your spot during the season. This is the only way we have to ensure that we reserve spots for paying hunters.
  • This is fair chase hunting, not high fence and as such there are no guarantees. Our staff will work extremely hard to give you a memorable experience.
  • These are fully guided hunts as we don't offer any unguided or semi-guided hunts.

Nebraska is one of the Interstate Wildlife Compact States and as such if your hunting rights are revoked in any state you are not eligible to hunt in Nebraska.
