OPTION 2 - NEBRASKA MULE DEER HUNT
4-Day / 5-Night mule deer hunt in western Nebraska for one hunter with Heartland Pride Outfitters. This outfitter operates in Western Nebraska and hunts on properties that cover the most desirable destinations including the famous Sandhills, North Platte River, Wildcat Hills, Niobrara River, and Pine Ridge Regions of Nebraska. All of these locations offer different terrain types, features, and game animals. These regions range from our state’s open Sandhill country where no trees are found for hundreds of miles yet littered with mule deer, antelope, coyotes, and prairie dogs; to the Wildcat Hills & Pine Ridge areas of the state which hold great numbers of wild Merriam turkey, mule deer, whitetails, elk, and bighorn sheep. Deer taken typically range in the 170-190” class.

The typical mule deer hunting strategy is spot-n-stalk which they have efficiently mastered over the years. They also utilize ground blinds to hunt certain areas where blinds are more effective which may include mule deer hitting waterholes on a pattern and in this instance will setup a brush or ground blind to hunt these particular animals. While spot-n-stalking you will get out to vantage points in the morning as the sun rises and start glassing thousands of acres of pasture land and Ag fields. Once you and your guide have found the target buck you will formulate a plan on how to stalk within shooting range.

Details:
• Includes lodging, meals and beverages (not including alcohol)
• Guide service
• Transportation during the hunt
• Skinning, caping and deboning for legal transportation to taxidermist and processor of your choice

Spend as much time on the boat as you choose including overnight weather permitting. Sharks are one of the most prominent game fish in the waters of the world and Fort Lauderdale and Miami have some of the most productive shark fishing on the Southeast US coast. When it comes to targeting a large game fish, South Florida offers an impressive array of several Shark species: The infamous Hammerhead Shark, Thresher Shark, aggressive Bull Shark and Mako Shark take up residence in our waters for most of the year. Millions of Sharks migrate through South Florida waters every year in search of food and to mate with others. Sharks are truly a unique predator; they will search for their next meal throughout the entire water column.

This charter was Voted Top Shark Fishing Charter by ReelReports.com 2013-2018 and has a long standing relationship with NOAA Fisheries. As part of their relationship with NOAA, 99% of the sharks they catch are tagged and released for research. If you catch a Mako shark (highly edible) and you want to eat the fish, they will bring it back to the dock and provide you with the great catch. NOAA will meet your group at the dock to take tissue samples for more research and to protect sharks for the future. They tag more sharks than any other boat in the state as part of their conservation efforts.
