Details of Ranch Whitetail Hunts
Most hunters dream of that day when they will harvest that huge "trophy" class Whitetail buck. At Silvertine we can make that dream come true! The Silvertine preserve was born not only for the exceptional elk hunting, but also from a special passion for Whitetail deer hunting. Our hunters are not only treated to an exceptional hunting environment, but also witness first hand some of the best, high-quality, trophy deer hunting available to the sportsman. This combination creates the ultimate hunt for trophy bucks. With a resident breeding program on the ranch and continuely adding new genetics to the herd, it creates the best of the best on our heavily timbered preserve, which creates a hunt equally as challenging as anything you will find in the wild. Our deer hunts are offered after Septemebr 20th, and rut hunting can add excitement to any hunt. The only difference is our bucks have truly incredible genetics, producing only exceptional trophy class bucks with massive long beams and heavy tines.
To harvest, let alone witness, a 200 plus whitetail in the wild is less than 1 in a 5 million, but to see one with your own eyes, coming into your guides rattling, is a sight that will remain etched into your memory forever. At Silvertine we hunt in elevated box blinds over bait plots, so we do not disturb the deer during their feeding times, and they come right in. Our blinds are comfortable, roomy, soundproof, heated, and allow the hunter to take their time and make a good shot. With years of research and thousands of breeding whitetails available to us, we are able to offer huge bucks to you. In their peek, almost all the deer on the preserve will weigh over 300 pounds. If it's an average buck for yourself, or a monster you desire, give us a call and odds are we will be able to fulfill your expectations. Combining this with the ultimate hunt environment will assure you the experience of a lifetime for monster trophy Whitetail bucks.
In 2007 we started our own breeding program for our Whitetails, and four years later our hunters are reaping the benefits! Managing our Bucks and Does for quality has been our backbone. In 2011 our first year of the "Ranch Hunt" package, the average buck killed by our Whitetail Hunters exceeded the 180" mark, and in 2016 our average was 248"! Heaven only knows what it will be next year.
This a REAL HUNT, and VERY Fair Chase! These deer live and die on this ranch, and are SUPER SPOOKY! Even though these deer are "Fenced In", all of our hunters say these deer are wild suckers and exactly like hunting any other whitetail deer anywhere else, just that we can control the hunting pressure and harvest to allow the deer to grow to maturity, supplement them with feed and manage the genetic base for trophy quality.
The 2012 Average was 185"
The 2013 Average was 191"
The 2014 Average was 204"
The 2015 Avergage was 236"
The 2016 Average was 248", and we are 95% successful.
Now there is a few things you need to know about this package hunt
1) It is Limited to Whitetail Bucks on the ranch in the 200"-250" range and bucks that breed and are raised on the hunt property, and what Mother nature controls and grows. There will be many bucks in both the typical and non-typical class's, and the photos on the sides of this page and below are some of the "Ranch" harvested bucks from the 2011 to 2016 season, so you can see what to expect as far as quality and antler shapes, it truly varies.
Now that said, some guys are going to want specific qualities in a Buck and these bucks need to be "Consignment Bucks" , by that I mean, Bucks that hunters want to harvest that have drop tines, webbing, large 200+ typical's, extra wide, etc., etc., Bucks like this we can get, and prices for them fall into the same pricing schedule.
We sell our deer hunts based on antler size, and for a full listing of our Trophy Fees "CLICK HERE" to go to our 2017 Dates and Rates page. You will find the deer trophy fees right under the elk trophy fees. ALL OUR DEER HUNTS ARE FULLY GUIDED FOR OPTIMUM SAFETY AND TROPHY SELECTION.
2) The $4,950 base hunt fee applies to these hunts, and we are still offering 100% GUARANTEED OPPORTUNITY! The Base Hunt Fee will be charged if a trophy is not taken during the scheduled hunt at no fault of Silvertine Wildlife Co. Only if we are unsuccessful in providing a reasonable opportunity for you to harvest a trophy in this size range, then no fee will be charged and your hunt will be rescheduled for a later date or your money refunded in full.
