Default Which State Would You Hunt In?

Looking at doing an out-of-state whitetail hunt, as to I have only hunted in Texas. Really would love to take a big MidWest whitetail with my bow, but figured I’d ask people here on the GS who have actual experience.

So my questions are:

Which state has the biggest deer? Rack and body wise? (Which state do they call “Land of the Giants?”)

Not too familiar with buying out-of-state hunting licenses, so which state has the easiest obtainable hunting license?

And lastly, if anyone has any real world experience, what state did you hunt and outfitter did you use? Pros and cons?

Thanks!

Ohio...I have hunted there a couple of years and there are some flat out monsters. Just gotta find a farmer willing to let you hunt his land. Out of state license is relatively cheap.

We have land in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas and I hunt all of them and if I had to pick one it would be Oklahoma, it’s definitely the sleeper state with the best chance for a Booner without spending a ton on a guaranteed hunt situation. If your simply looking for a big bodied deer with a solid rack I’d say Kansas but if your into rolling the dice for a giant it would be Oklahoma during the rut in the right location. Our family has around 23k acres in the three states and our go to for a big deer has always been SE Oklahoma. If you have any questions on a solid place to hunt or with an outfitter in these locations I’m happy to help. As is everything it’s location, location, location without being shot out.

I would look into Kentucky. That is a sleeper state. They have been spitin out some monsters in the last few years.
I hunted Kansas for 14 years. Itís not what it used to be. Thatís one of the reasons I quit hunting it, it was on a decline.
I think I would look at Ohio, Kentucky, and Illinois.

What area have you been hunting? We’ve hunted Kentucky the last 3 years and we stopped this year due to lack of productivity. I know every states got monsters but we’re looking for the right places to hunt and after a fortune spent with nothing to show for it we’re still looking for that special place.

We hunt around 5 different states every year due to tag issues and I’m not trying to hijack the OP’s thread but if you know a special place in Kentucky I’m interested for sure.

I have never hunted Kentucky. Just seen photos of deer killed there and they were very impressive. Scattered across different counties, but think were mostly on the western half of the state.
I have a friend that lives in Ohio but close to Kentucky line.

This right here.......If you get up around the Moberly area in Northern MO that have some absolute Giants.

Nebraska has some big deer as well

Both states Non-resident licenses are very reasonable as well.

Iowa is on my bucket list just because its Iowa and I have been fascinated with it since I was young.

I've hunted kansas for the last 20ish years. I love it. Nothing but east tx to compare it to really, but I would say if you could find a good area with low pressure, you have a good chance at killing a big deer. God just plain old set the Midwest up for bowhunting.

If you had 6400 acres in any of the top 4 states then odds say you shot a booner in the last 10 yrs. Now to find a 6400 acre lease in one of those states and hunt it hard for 10 years

The Fallacy with all those numbers and charts is most locals and hunters donít give two craps about B&C and P&Y score card. My friends I know in Kansas could care less and over the yrs they have killed multiple B&C deer. Iíve seen them. Same with friends in south Texas and the panhandle. And all over Texas for that matter. They donít care about a score. Today itís more about score but it use to not be

Don't doubt there are plenty of potential book deer taken everywhere that are never entered. I see Kent County Texas is not listed on the bc map in the article I linked too. However in the late 90s on a property I used to hunt the largest tx typical that year was shot on that ranch and was on the cover tth but not in b&c.

Iowa if you’re wanting to wait and shoot a true giant. Oklahoma, Missouri, nebraska if wanting OTC tags. Kansas would be somewhere in the middle. Iowa tags are worth the wait

1)Pike County Illinois (or anywhere in Southern Illinois) - Hunted it 5 years and loved the experience.
2) Ohio - Lived there two years, but didn't hunt. Saw enough and have buddies who have hunted there...would do it.
3) Iowa - Because
4) Kansas - Because

YOu didn't ask...but close enough for given ease of travel

5) Alberta - Hunted their 6 years and residence and 2 hosted. Special place chasing whitetails in Northern Alberta
6) Saskaweatchan - Even better rep and one can hunt bait, so better bow option by far

We live in SE Iowa four miles north of the Iowa/Missouri state line. There is some awesome ground just across the line in Northern Missouri. The deer don't know where the state line is located.

One thing I have learned after living here.....an Iowa tag is kinda like "the forbidden fruit". (a thing that is desired all the more because it is not allowed or hard to get)

Sure....there are residents hunters up here that kill big bucks....some very consistently, but the majority of hunters just want to put some meat in the freezer and it's really no big deal to them.

I know this sounds crazy but a lot of the guys here are infatuated with going to Texas to kill a hog. A a matter of fact I took a group of guys from Iowa to Texas last March to kill pigs. The grass is always greener somewhere else.

I’ve hunted in northern Missouri with Tombstone creek outfitters. And saw several deer just none in range. This hunt is basically a semi guided hunt. They give you a farm to yourself. They have a couple stands in place but encourage you to take your own stuff and set up according to the wind. I would go back.

Last year I hunted with Prime outfitters in souther Illinois and will be going back this year in November. The guys that run it are from. Louisiana and you ha r a Cajun cooked style meal every night. They have several thousand acres and run a great operation. Saw the biggest free range 8 of my life last year and he is bigger this year based off of trail cameras. I plan on doing this trip for a couple. Ore years. They already have dozens of sets up and will set you up in one according to wind. If you want to move they will move you.

Both are OTC tags. If you want to next year send me a PM. None of my buddies want to travel
