Hunt Info for Tall Tine Outfitters

At Tall Tine Outfitters, we offer archery, shotgun and muzzleloader hunts. We are also now offering yearly lease packages that allow you to secure your own farm for the entire hunting season. In addition, we offer a select few members into our hunting club, which has stricter management goals. Limited pressure on our farms ensures that bucks are able to reach maturity. Only trophy bucks are to be taken on the hunts and leases with minimums being 140" or 4.5 years old or older. Hunters hunt at their own pace while at TTO. No strict itinerary to follow makes for a more relaxing and enjoying hunt. Guided hunts have treestands and blinds already in place. Leases allow you to hang your own stands or we can do it for you. Food plots are in place where permissible. Deer in the 140"-180" range are common with several larger bucks being seen and taken every year.
