Practice Bow Hunting at Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch
If your shot is a little rusty or you are new to bow hunting, Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch provides as much target practice as you need. Knowing your distance is essential when hunting with bow and arrow. Our guides will go over the basics with you then and cut you loose. One of the most important things when bow hunting, aside from bow tuning and form, is sighting your bow. To sight your bow, use your rangefinder. You want your rangefinder yardage to match your sight pins. If you don't have a rangefinder, learn how to pace off your yardage accurately. Of course, we'll be glad to help you with this.
The Importance of Early Entrances
Getting to a spot early in the morning is crucial to catching your trophy whitetail. We recommend getting in position by no later than 5:00 AM. This is an excellent tip for guided whitetail hunts and for hunting in the wild. In the wild, if you get situated earlier, most hunters won't start showing up until a few minutes before first light. Often, these last-minute hunters will inadvertently push the deer to you, especially if you're further back in the woods.
Of course, there's no need to worry about other hunters on our ranch. Still, we advise getting in position early, because this is when the deer are most active. You will enjoy hunting in an environment where you don't have to worry about other hunters, birdwatchers, nature walkers, etc. When you visit Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch for guided whitetail bow hunts, it's just the deer and us.
