Guided Trophy Whitetail Deer & Elk Hunting Trips

When you book your hunting trip with Dragon Creek Ranch, you will be the only hunting party in camp. We do this so that we can give you that close attention that you deserve! You will be guided during the hunt by an experienced guide who will help you to harvest that whitetail buck or bull elk of your dreams.

Using quality deer management practices, we have harvested many SCI record book bucks that have made the North-west typical estate category. The early season average whitetail buck scores 220" SCI with the largest two bucks scoring 297" SCI and 245" SCI. There are only a limited number of mature whitetail bucks available per year, so we offer our hunts on a first come first serve basis.

Our trophy whitetail hunting trips are flat-rate priced according to when you hunt, not the trophy score of your animal. This allows you to take any size mature trophy whitetail buck without worrying about any extra trophy fees. Both gun and archery hunters are welcome and will be personally guided by the ranch owner.
