    Question…never been to the midwest to hunt big Whitetail. Might have a chance to hunt a private farm close to Cream Wis. this fall. Is it as good as they say and worth a long trip for this south Fla boy? Please advise with any info on what I could expect, how to hunt Bucks in areas like this and the best time of year to be there?

    Many thanks for any heads up…

    Wisconsin has some outstanding deer and hunting, but like most States, it all depends on where and when.  Buffalo County area is consistently one of the best in the USA.  You’ll have trouble getting hunting permission in most areas, since bow and gun hunting are so popular in the State, most of the good land it taken. Be prepared to hunt the deep woods, fight off our mosquitos and bear the cold weather.  Hope you find success here.

    Haaa…deep woods & mosquitos? Your talking to a Fal boy, son. Our mosquitos would carry you off and our 95 degree, August bow opener, humidity and lightning storms would have you running to your truck in 15 minutes. I think I could take the Wis woods.

    Maybe I should put my question this way…if you have an invite on a very private 800 acre farm, high quality place run with no expense spared to improve the property, within 10 mile radius of Cream, with food plots etc. that only sees one or two guys hunt a year, would you go all the way from Florida to try it? How big a Bucks are we talking about here? Remember, a Fla buck of 110-125″ is a monster for us….{#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile}

    So….?

    So….?

    If you plan on being disrespectful while you are there maybe its not a good idea, but the trip is totally up to you.  If it is as you described it ( low pressure, food plots, etc) You would be a fool to pass it up in my opinion, but don’t go expecting a 150 class buck behind every tree.  The first two weeks of November are usually my best times in seeing mature bucks on there feet.  Good luck either way!

    No disrespect intended….just ment to say  I’m tough enough to handle a few bugs and your woods up there compared to our swampy, wet, hot conditions down here which I hunt in all the time.

    Anyway, thanks very much for the info. Just trying to get some basic intel on the area in general. I am doing business with one of the local land owners and during our conversations we found out each other is a bow hunter. Just trying to gauge if I would want to trade him a fishing trip for a hunt as we seem to have something the other guy wants to try. I don’t mind the challenge of a tough hunt but wanted to know I have a “good chance” and try this trade? Not to mention getting to see another part of our country. Thanks again….{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    If you can work such a trade that would be enjoyable for yourself as well as your business associate, absolutely – go for it.  As Nolander stated, early November would likely be a prime time for a hunt.  Talk to your associate and ask him what time he would recommend.  If he desires an equally rewarding fishing trip on your end, he’ll be honest with you.

    I know you likely intended no disrespect, and tone is very difficult to convey in a written format, but please know that folks up in this part of the country tend to look at non-residents with a skeptical eye.  Far too many people from out-of-state come to Wisconsin to pursue big deer and make jerks out of themselves in the process by the way they conduct themselves in town and when seeking permission to access our lands (most of those folks are from the Chicago area{#emotions_dlg.mathews_rolling_eyes}). We value politeness and modesty fiercely up here.  If the locals feel you are being dismissive and/or disrespectful, they will let you know both upfront and in any further instance where you may require assistance, you may find it hard to get.

    Now about those Mosquitos, you do know they get big up here, correct?  Big enough to be our “unofficial” state bird!

    Good luck!

    Take the trip!  After the first frost, the bugs are gone and the woods are fantastic.  I will be cold, so bring warm clothes.  Nothing like hunting WIS woods in the pre-rut and rut.  Private 800 would be awesome.  Fair chase, you can expect just about anything.  We have some of the highest concentration of Booners in the world.  If you want to see some examples, I post a lot of my trail cam pics on youtube:  anything ETS Deer  ex: ETS 8 point Buck.

    Hope you join us this fall!

    BTW:  Just down the road from Cream, you can visit the Mathew’s Factory in Sparta, WIS.

    I have hunted many states and many places. as stated by some, all states depend on were, when, and who you hunt with. I have a neat little patch of land in west central WI. 10 aceres, and some good land around me, pluss another 20 I lease. I have no problem killing at least three deer every year and I have many trophy bucks come through my land. I feel we have it about as good as it gets in the whole midwest.
    If I wanted to without leaving my 10, I could easley kill a couple doz. deer on any given year. And the bugs are not all that bad. I do not about Cream WI, but I know the whole west central by heart and it is all very good.

    I absolutely agree! 800 private acres sounds like a dream! BTW, if you come to Wisconsin in November, mosquitoes and hot, swampy conditions will be the least of your worries. More like frozen feet and hypothermia! Bring warm clothes.

    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    I hunted that area in 2010 and 2011 with a buddy that lives in Eau Claire… Looks like a great scenario… I’d do it if I were you… I know I can’t wait to get back up there… hopefully in November of next year.

    Absolutely worth it to go.  I know I am close living in MN but I go yearly.  Wouldn’t miss it.  Good luck!
