Whitetail Deer Hunting
Tennessee Whitetail deer hunting is some of the most challenging Whitetail hunting in
North America. Goodman Ranch provides great natural cover for the “grey ghost” to
hide, and this makes for an exciting and challenging hunt. Early in the fall we like to
hunt in the mature hardwood forests, where the white oaks are dropping their acorns.
This time of year is probably the most beautiful time around here, because of all the
hardwood hill country changing colors. Later in the year, we hunt over food plots where
the whitetail deer like to come when the food is getting sparse in the woods. We have
over 100 acres of food plots containing five different kinds of clover, wheat, rye, chicory,
and other vegetation designed to stimulate antler growth and overall good general health.
Whitetail Deer Mastery
We have managed this herd for over fifteen years and have been able to allow the
Whitetail bucks to grow to maturity by consistently harvesting 3-1/2 years or older bucks.
When you allow the bucks to mature in age and provide them a nutrient rich diet you get
an outstanding herd of healthy bucks. This herd allows you to have plenty of opportunity
to harvest a mature trophy buck.
Whitetail Deer Hunts
Tennessee offers two youth Whitetail deer hunts; one in the beginning of the season
and one at the end of the season. The early season youth hunt comes just before muzzle
loading season and the deer have not been wound up by gun shots.
Our whitetail hunts are generally a 3day/ 2night hunt which include meals, lodging,
and trophy fees, for $3995. Licensing, taxidermy and gratuity are additional. After your
successful hunt, we will cape, quarter, and package your meat. We can also arrange your
taxidermy needs. We offer hunting out of covered blinds, tripods and ladder stands or you
can still hunt if you prefer. Whitetail deer may be taken by the weapon of your choice,
depending on state regulations. Click on this TWRA link to find out about seasons,
licensing, and regulations. Please browse through our Photo Gallery to view the many
pictures of Whitetails we have there.
