Tad Ladd West Kentucky Whitetail Rifle Hunts

Our two rifle hunts offer one of the most coveted hunts in the Midwest, the Kentucky Rifle season. Kentucky DNR officials try to coincide their rifle opener with the start of the rut. A statewide one buck limit makes the rifle season the most popular of all. It can be downright incredible when the timing is right, and our well managed properties yield plenty of bruisers and lifetime bucks when the chasing starts in earnest.

The rifle opener is simply a special time to be in the treestand in western Kentucky. Mature bucks have given in to that primal urge to breed and can be seen anywhere at anytime. Our hunters have enjoyed tremendous success during our time of operation. My wish would be every hunter gets to experience the magic of a Kentucy rut at least once in their hunting career.

The second weekend can be even better than the opener. Most locals have had their fill and the matures who felt the pressure from the once a year hunters  feel a little less overall pressure and reveal themselves. Our success rate has been outstanding. We start the Rifle II hunt on Friday and end on Monday so folks can travel home easier before Thanksgiving.

Hunts are limited to 12 hunters per hunt in order to make your hunt as personable as possible and to keep pressure as minimal as possible. Our facilities are first class, and so is our hunting. We would love to have you.
