Bowhunting Whitetail Deer in the Lower 48
The choices of where to bowhunt whitetail deer are endless. While there are literally thousands of places a bowhunter can choose to bowhunt whitetails, we have tried to locate outfitters in some key states where the traveling bowhunter can hope for a chance at Pope & Young class bucks. We have limited our selection to a few outfitters, in a few areas. We offer bowhunts in Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming, Montana, Texas and Colorado.
There are five different species of deer as recognized by Pope and Young in North America. The Whitetail Deer is the most heavily bowhunted animal in North America. There is also the smaller sub-species called the Coues Deer, pronounced "cows". There are also the Mule Deer, Sitka Blacktail Deer, and the Columbia Blacktail Deer. P&Y minimums for the 5 species start with Coues Deer at 65, Sitka Blacktail at 75, Columbia Blacktail at 90, Whitetail at 125, and the Mule Deer at 145.
