When my 12-year-old son Barrett said he wanted to take his first deer this fall, I knew of only one place to take him: Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch.
In addition to having some of the largest whitetails in North America, owners Donald and Angi Hill are extremely family oriented, have a reputation for going out of their way to make hunters feel at home, and promote hunting as a lifelong passion.
Barrett and I arrived at Oak Creek to find Guide Shane Dorton ready to teach Barrett everything he knew, hunter’s ethics and safety and to get him on to the buck of a lifetime.
He didn’t take long and I couldn’t have been more pleased with Barrett’s shot.
My and Barrett’s thanks to Donald, Angi, Shane, and everyone at Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch in Bland, Missouri for a fantastic time!
