The typical Booner’s Acres hunt will start with helping guest get situated and comfortable in camp. Hunters will then be familiarized with lodging, practice range, property boundaries, and recently captured trail camera pictures. Hunters will have personal choice on stand locations and length of sits. This isn’t a hunt where you’re told what to do! This is your hunt and you’re welcome to make your own decisions. Of course, Recommendations will be made based on knowledge, past observations, scouting and recent trail camera monitoring. Hunters will be provided with self serve breakfast, cold cut lunches and home cooked country dinner.
After the harvest, Booner’s Acres will provide assistance with game recovery (if needed), game care, taxidermy preparation and a trophy photo shoot. Onsite coolers are available for prolonged game preservation during your stay. Venison may also be donated to local food pantry or Ohio Hunter and Farmers feeding the Hungry program.
Pre-Rut is arguably one of the best times to catch a mature whitetail on his feet during legal shooting light. White acorns will undoubtedly be the preferred food source but Hunters should also focus on scrape and rub lines located close to known mature bucks bedding areas. Bucks are also very susceptible to calling as they search for the first receptive does.
Full Rut, This is the time that anything could happen! Sometimes rut hunting can be hard. Deer are off daily patterns and very unpredictable but mature deer daylight movement is at its highest. Hunters are urged to sit all day. Focus will be on funnels and known doe bedding areas. Keep the bow close because the action can be fast and in a moment’s notice! Hunters will be provided with a packed lunch for all day sits.
Opening Muzzleloader: Again it’s time to extend your effective range. Hunters will be provided with a range to practice on day of arrival. This time of year many factors must be paid attention to. The controversial “second rut” is now, so staying close to does can be a successful tactic. Bucks worn down from rut must re-fuel, so food sources are also crucial. Also, knowledge will be made of potential pressure from neighboring properties and likelihood of forced deer movement.
Guest arriving day before opener
Late Season Standing Food Source:
My personal favorite! If you’ve never hunted late season, the key is cold weather and preferred food sources. Booner’s Acres properties have secluded standing food sources with nearly zero pressured whitetails. The time frame on late season hunt may be set in advance but is best if your arrival time is flexible. For the past 3 years, late season hunting has been great! Count on this hunt happening in or around late January-early February. Baiting is a legal and effective tactic under Ohio Hunting regulations, pre-baited sites can be established if requested.
