2019 marks the 31st anniversary of the Whitetail Trophy Hunt at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Event dates will be November 16th, 17th and 18th. This tremendously popular hunt brings in participants from all over the United States and abroad. Entries are received on a first come, first served basis and limited to a maximum of 230 hunters.

Missouri holds the world record for non-typical whitetail deer racks and the results from each year's hunt reflects the kind of trophy deer that makes this region of the country famous. Superior deer hunting is not the only thing the Whitetail Trophy Hunt is noted for. Many hunters bring their families along to enjoy the beautiful lake area scenery, unique shops, crafts and outlet malls.

The Whitetail Trophy Hunt builds a comraderie that brings hunters back again and again. Over $4 million in cash and prizes has been awarded over the years to many fortunate whitetail hunters. Plus, the five year Show-me Showdown is in its last year for the 2019 hunt. This promotion will provide an additional cash bonus prize fund that can go up to $55,000. That makes the 2019 hunt REALLY important in working toward the bonus! 
About the Hunt
The placement of the hunting stand is the single most important factor in hunting whitetail deer. We have polled successful hunters from previous years regarding sightings to determine the ideal location for stands on each landowner's property. This information has proven quite valuable in maximizing the opportunities for securing a prizewinning buck.

Stands are placed in timbered areas with a normal shooting range of 50 to 250 yards. To ensure fairness, stand locations are selected through a daily random, computerized drawing. To assist the hunter in preparing for each day's hunt, our staff provides a description of the stand,surrounding terrain and the shooting range that has been selected. All hunting properties are posted prior to the hunt, and patrolled during the event, to assure exclusive rights to the area.

The Whitetail Trophy Hunt staff diligently evaluate the results of each year's event, and professionally scout hunting properties during the winter movement patterns of the deer, to maintain a quality experience for each participant.
Deer Stands
The Ozarks is home to some of the most beautiful and productive land in the country. The Whitetail, LLC staff have spent the last several years recruiting property owners in the Lake of the Ozarks area to make their farms and ranches available for the Whitetail Trophy Hunt and to serve as guides for our visiting hunters.

To date, we have over 30,000 acres of prime hunting land set aside for the event and a host of very knowledgeable and experienced guides to enhance the hunting experience. Individuals that usually serve as guides are either the landowner himself, or family and friends. In every case, the guide is well acquainted with the land that is to be hunted.

Since the landowner/guides have a stake in the hunter’s success through a portion of the prize money, they are quite motivated in providing hunters with the optimum range of their time and skill.
Hunting Guides
Habitat management and herd control are vitally important factors that spur development of prizewinning bucks. Whitetail, LLC has an established program that provides our landowner/guides with proper food and mineral requirements for their deer populations. Our staff supervise placement of food plots to ensure maximum results.

The buck/doe ratio on each hunting area is another very important consideration. Hunters from previous years help us to accurately calculate this ratio and when we determine there is an overabundance of does in a given area, we encourage that landowner to allow hunters with doe permits to hunt the property during the remainder of the hunting season.

The success of our management programs are certainly self-evident with Boone and Crockett scores of deer taken during each year’s hunt increasing consistently. Good conservation practices produce quality deer.
Deer Habitat
Deer racks will be judged daily by a panel of three judges using the Boone and Crockett scoring method. All racks will be scored as green rack, non-typical, with no deductions. After the racks have been scored, they will be displayed for viewing at the Whitetail, LLC hunt headquarters and remain there throughout the hunt.
