HPO hosts trophy whitetail hunts throughout the archery, muzzleloader, and rifle seasons within Kansas & Nebraska state lines. Our ranches are filled with croplands, CRP fields, wooded creeks and river bottoms, as well as strategically placed food plots & standing crops; all which build large bodied and antlered deer for our clients.
Nebraska is considered one of the nations sleeper states for deer hunting and we really do have it all. We ask our hunters to hold out for whitetail bucks 130″ class or larger because we know this is absolutely available to our clients upon hunting with us. Our Quality Deer Management Program helps us to provide excellent trophy quality on all of our properties year after year.
Kansas is…well, I’m sure you’ve heard lately, one of the nations top states for producing the biggest whitetail bucks in North America. Being born and raised forty minutes north of the Nebraska/Kansas border, we decided to expand south during the 2012 seasons, earning leases on some of the best North-Central/North-West Kansas properties available. We have really been able to put together great things in our neighboring state to the south for our clients.
On an average day hunting whitetails with HPO, you will find yourself in one of our many Darkwoods Blinds, lock-on stands, or ladderstands during the pursuit. Under the right conditions, we will sometimes spot n stalk whitetails as well as stand/blind hunting tactics.
As a part of our HPO management program, we have established a minimum score on our Whitetail Bucks of 130″ gross.
Archery Whitetail Hunts:
Archery season provides some of the best opportunities to harvest a trophy class whitetail. One of the longest archery seasons in America, Nebraska’s season runs from September 15th through December 31st non-stop(crossbows legal in Nebraska), while Kansas’s is just shy of opening and closing on those exact dates.
Get after these bucks before the first firearm seasons; or choose between pre-rut, rut, or post rut buck activity. Any archer hunting with us has a wide variety of dates to choose from, but statistics show, season opener or rut hunts are most successful.
All archery buck tags issued in Nebraska issue out a free bonus doe tag and are statewide permits. HPO will allow a free bonus doe harvest with the purchase of a buck hunt in Nebraska.
Archery hunts include 5 hunting days, 6 nights lodging.
Kansas permits are draw only, call Cody for tag/permit obtainment details @ 308.991.8456.
Muzzleloader Whitetail Hunts:
Nebraska’s muzzleloader season falls during the second rut allowing statewide access for all permits. This season runs the entire month of December which increases a clients chance to harvest a monster whitetail stepping out of the cold woods and into one of our many cropfields.

Hunting over food sources provides above par success and we have 1000′s of acres of food sources for these deer to pile into.

This is when we see the real monsters come out of the wood work to chase hot, receptive does. On any given day at any given time, the buck of a lifetime could walk out in front of your stand/blind as these deer are running 24/7 during this season if weather permits them too.
