Deer Hunts with Honey Creek Outfitters

Archery and Gun Whitetail deer hunts at Honey Creek Outfitters.

The Land & Terrain: We have over 11,000 acres of upland hardwoods and creek bottoms for your hunting adventure with 4000 of those acres in corn and soybeans. There is also approximately 2000 acres of C.R.P. land mixed between the crops and timber which makes an excellent recipe for mature bucks. All acres are on private property. No public hunting grounds.

Stands/Blinds: Tree stands and tower blinds are set up and ready to go when you arrive. However, if you have a stand that you are extremely comfortable with and want to bring with you, you may do so. Stands are set up on several funnels and bottlenecks connecting bedding areas with food sources and also along crop field edges.

Photos & Past Hunters: Each season we update our galleries with our successful customers. Check out our updated photo galleries:

Fair Chase: All hunts are 100% fair chase with absolutely no high fences. This is real hunting.

Limited Spaces & Hunting Pressure:  We book a limit of 8 hunters in our Mercer county camp which has access to over 5000 acres of private hunting.  Our Grundy county camp books 9 hunters maximum on any hunting day for 5500 acres.  And our Putnam county camp sleeps 6-8 hunters which have access to 550 acres.   

**New for 2016 deer seasons:  Minimum score requirement for any buck harvested is 130".  Any buck harvested that has a gross measurement less than 130" will incure a $500 fine due immediately.

**New for 2016 Archery deer season:  Crossbows are allowed as legal method during archery deer and turkey seasons.
