Non-Resident Hunters

Non-Resident Hunters:  When applying for tags, you will be prompted to enter a Primary and Alternate Unit.  For your Primary Unit, select “17.”  For your Alternate Unit selection, you can choose whichever unit you may be hunting before or after CEO.

If you will only be hunting with CEO, we recommend selecting “16” as your Alternate Unit, as CEO is gradually gaining hunting opportunities within Unit 16.

How do I apply for a mule deer tag?

Simple.  Following is a step-by-step guide.  First, some important information.  Please read …

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism (KDWPT) will announce here when non-resident applications are being accepted for WHITETAIL deer.  This application period is typically 30 days in duration and has historically been in April.

During the application process for a whitetail tag, all hunters, resident or non-, will have the option to apply for a MULE DEER STAMP.  Select the appropriate responses to apply for and enter the mule deer stamp lottery draw.

IF YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL in the mule deer stamp lottery, you will have the option to hunt either whitetail or mule deer.  Your Kansas tag will read “Either Species/Either Sex.”

IF YOU ARE UNSUCCESSFUL in the mule deer stamp lottery, you will be hunting whitetail, only.  The KDWPT will FULLY REFUND your mule deer stamp application fee.  What do you have to lose?!

What is CEO's approach to whitetail hunting?

Whitetail hunters are a unique group of individuals. Each, it seems, has his/her own hunting approach, theories, strategies, etc.  No two hunters are exactly the same.

So, at CEO, we cater to you.  How?

Interaction.  After you book a hunt with us, we will contact you and, together, ensure we prepare your hunt with your theories and strategies in mind.  It is, after all, your hunt.

Tree stands.  Yes, we have them.  No need to bring your own.  They will be set up and ready to sit — all within the confines of the famed Arkansas Riverbed hunting corridors.  Note:  Safety harnesses are required.  If you do not have a safety harness, we will provide one for you.

Bale Blinds.  We have those, too.  Our bale blinds are set up throughout the interior of the ranch.  After 1,000s of hours of scouting, we will have strategically placed our bale blinds in areas known to cruising bucks.  Should you choose to bowhunt from a bale blind, we recommend being comfortable (i.e. good) at shooting from 0-40 yards.  It’s open country …

Spot & Stalk.  Yes … it is possible to spot & stalk whitetail.  This CEO brute was taken after a multi-hour stalk.

Kansas-Hunting-Hunt-CEO-Whitetail-Deer

Never tried to spot & stalk a whitetail?  Well … we highly recommend giving it a shot.  It is the ultimate adrenaline rush.

We will get on high-ground while it is dark … enjoy a beautiful Kansas sunrise … and start glassing.  Once we spot some antler shine tucked away in the plumb thicket or a buck sunbathing on a hillside — it’s game time!

From mobile decoy use, to our approach, to playing the wind — the hunting strategy begins immediately.  This is an interactive, teamwork hunt.  And it is an absolute thrill!

Is a whitetail spot & stalk a difficult hunt?  Yes.

Can your days be filled with multiple failed stalks?  Count on it.

But … you will never, ever forget that feeling of crawling, inching towards your buck.  Getting set up for the shot.  Waiting for the perfect opportunity.

Of all the arrows you will ever release at a deer, this will be the one you remember (and retell) most of all.

How does a muley hunt work?

CEO is home to some of the sweetest mule deer hunting habitat in Southwest Kansas, evidenced by that fact that CEO is home to a Kansas record:  202 2/8 typical.

Not so sure?  Here’s a reputable article that discusses Southwest Kansas Mule Deer Hunting.  Just scroll down to “Kansas” and have a read.  Petersen’s Hunting

Our muley hunts are fully guided — one on one — hunter and guide.  That’s it.

With only *two* mule deer hunts offered each year, you will have 10,000 acres to yourself.

THIS IS WILDLY SIGNIFICANT TO YOU!

ZERO PRESSURE FROM OTHER HUNTERS!

We do not double-book.  No other hunter will be simultaneously chasing a muley during your hunt.

Is there a lodge?

Yes … but it is being completely remodeled into a luxury hunting lodge.

In the interim, you have options, each of which we will help facilitate.  You can choose a local hotel, a local weekly house rental or, should you choose to be “off the grid,” we can establish a hunting camp for you — complete with a large outfitter tent, cots, generator, cooking grills, etc.

Contact us and we will get you settled.
