Many hunters dreaming of elk hunting think they have to go all the way to Colorado, Arizona, or New Mexico. This, however, is not only not necessary, but could mean these hunters end up having to settle for smaller elk. Choosing Missouri means a closer hunt in a comfortable lodge, but, most importantly, massive trophy bulls that make even the most experienced hunters proud. Getting the most of a hunt means planning ahead. Here is everything hunters should know about planning an elk hunt at Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch.

  • Each year hunters at the ranch harvest bull elk in the 400 to 500 inch range. These gorgeous animals make unbelievable trophies
  • They are a licensed big game hunting ranch that offers a full array of hunting experiences. Guided hunts are available for beginner hunters or those who prefer the help of a guide with years of experience and knowledge of the elks movements
