Established in 1978, Deer Creek Lodge did not evolve overnight. It was borne of passion, dedication, and relentless determination. Legendary first for its trophy whitetails and more recently for its unsurpassed wingshooting, today Deer Creek is truly a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Spring and summer resort activities include trophy catch-and-release bass fishing, horseback riding, 5-stand sporting clays, birding, and hiking. Whatever your sporting interests may be, world-class facilities and amenities provide the perfect setting for your next outdoor adventure, corporate meeting, or family getaway.

Date Range

Deer Creek Lodge is open to our guests year round. Our wingshooting season runs from October through the end of March, while our deer season runs from September into January, and our spring turkey season runs from mid-April through the beginning of May. Our trophy largemouth bass fishing, horseback riding, and sporting clays run throughout the entire year.

What is Provided to Customer

All of our hunts include a private guide in the field, finely trained pointing and flushing dogs, and transportation to and from the field. All birds are then processed, vacuum-packed, labeled, and frozen for easy transport back to your home.

While hunting at Deer Creek Lodge, you may encounter different terrains. While the majority of the terrain is relatively flat, one must anticipate some moderate hills during their hunt. We are more than happy to accommodate guests that prefer flat terrain or prefer to ride an ATV during their hunt. Our typical climate generally allows for dry walking; however guests are encouraged to bring water-proof footwear in case of inclement weather.

Itinerary

Sample of Typical Itinerary

Whether arriving in the evening or in the morning prior to an afternoon hunt, our guests will arrive to a welcoming staff and a freshly prepared gourmet meal.

After coming back for lunch and a little R and R, hunters will again be led to the fields by their guides for another action-packed afternoon hunt. Hunters will then be brought back to our lodge where they can enjoy hors d'oeuvres and an open bar, prior to being treated to a three course dinner from our professionally trained chef and his staff.

    What a great hunt! - 2/20/2015
    By: from Wichita Falls, TX, USA

    Went here based on a recommendation from some friends and have to say my wife and I had a great time. The accommodations and food were first rate, our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable (and it was a thrill watching his dogs "perform")! Over a two day period we killed almost 200 birds and our freezer is full! We will definitely be returning to Deer Creek Lodge!

    Fantastic upland hunt - 2/10/2015
    By: from Memphis, TN, USA

    This is my second trip to DCL. 3 of us travel each year to an Orvis lodge for a 1 day wingshoot. We have been to 2 other Orvis lodges. This one is the best. Lots of birds that fly well. Often get multiple flushes. Dogs and guides are great. Food and lodging are also well done. We plan to return and would highly recommend this to others.

    By: from Sebree, KY 42455, USA

    Over the top! You can't find a better quality or more welcoming group of people. From the accomidations to the hunt. World class hunt with world class dogs. Some of the best meals you could ask for. Ate so much I had a hard time shooting all the birds. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
