Where to hunt White Tailed Deer
The range of the white-tailed deer covers almost all North America. They are most common everywhere east of the Rocky Mountains. From the Rockies west, mule deer and black-tailed deer dominate, but whitetails are still found in river bottom areas and lower foothills in many western states. Whitetails are also found in many other areas of the world where they have been introduced, including New Zealand, Finland, the Czech Republic, and Serbia. Record books recognize a wide variety of subspecies, from Coues whitetails to Texas whitetails to northern whitetails, but the differences are largely in size and geographic region. Northern whitetails of Canada and the northern Midwest are the largest in body size; body size tends to get smaller the farther south you go, although antler size does not necessarily do the same, as some Texas whitetails have antlers that rival their northern cousins.
Guided whitetail deer hunts start at about $300-$500, depending on the location and duration of the hunt. Archery and muzzleloader hunts, where the chance to harvest a trophy is smaller, are typically cheaper. Prices increase with trip duration, the work that the outfitter has put in to improve the trophy quality and abundance, or the need to travel into remote areas, but most will cost under $3,500. The hunts offered around the $10,000 mark on BookYourHunt.com are mostly combination hunts with other animals, or calculated for a party of 3-4 hunters.

When to hunt White Tailed Deer?
Whitetail deer hunting season is generous, beginning in August or September in most states and provinces, and often lasting well into the next year. However, the greater part of it is typically archery only, with the modern firearm seasons limited to a few weeks in October-November. This season usually coincides with the rut, which is generally supposed to be the best time to hunt white-tailed deer.
Hunting methods All hunting methods (14)
Whitetails are hunted with a variety of methods depending on terrain, habits, and local laws and traditions. Most common is stand hunting, where a hunter watches from a likely area, either from a treestand or ground blind. In some states such as Texas and Michigan, baiting is legal, and hunters may be positioned near a feeder or bait pile. Driving is also a traditional method of deer hunting, especially in Eastern states that are thickly wooded. Still-hunting and spot-and-stalk are the most challenging and rewarding methods.
Why hunt White Tailed Deer? All hunts (454)
White-tailed deer are by far the most common ungulate in North America, and one of the world’s most popular animals to hunt. There’s a reason for this: While whitetails are extremely abundant throughout most of their range, they are wary and very challenging to hunt. Some hunters pursue whitetails to put healthy, organic, local meat in their freezer; others - for the challenge of outsmarting an old, mature buck, while for someone else the most important part of it is being in the same old autumn woods that their ancestors hunted for generations. But in any case a white-tailed deer hunt is a continuation of the tradition that is as old as America itself.
