3 Day Hunt

Rutting Ridge Outfitters

Offering world class and some of the best Buffalo County whitetail hunts and walleye fishing, Rutting Ridge Outfitters, LLC is located in the heart of Buffalo County, WI, along the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin. We are not your every day guide service. We are second and third Generation guides that have honed their skills by spending countless number of hours deer hunting and guiding on the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin. We are Mississippi River Walleye Guides and Buffalo County whitetail outfitters.

What’s unique about our Buffalo County Whitetail hunting is we take a very low number of hunters a year so that you can have a hunt of a lifetime. Being the heart of one of the best counties in the nation for Pope and Young Boone & Crockett record book entries, we want our guests to have a hunt of a lifetime. We are not offering just a 5 day sit where the land has been pounded by too many other hunters already. We average only 1-2 people for every 100 acres we lease for entire archery year so that the land will not get over pressured, and all those big Buffalo County whitetails will not go nocturnal with no chance of being harvested. We are averaging 95% Kill opportunity on bucks pope and young or better.

View our deer hunting page and check out our trophy gallery to view more of our monster Buffalo County deer. Antler restrictions apply on all whitetails; 130" on 8 pointers, and all other 140" minimum. Bucks shot under the minimum would be subjected to a $750 penalty.

All of our Buffalo County Archery and Rifle Deer Hunts are done under the rules of fair chase, as there are no high fences. Our "All-Inclusive" Whitetail Hunts were created for the sole purpose of providing the hunter with a high quality hunting experience. All of the Guides are hunters and know the habits and patterns of the deer and know what it takes to get you close enough for that shot of a lifetime.
