My Son’s First Deer

Over 211 inches of a fantastic first time!

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!
