We offer an early season Velvet Buck Hunt that takes place in mid to late August just prior to the bucks losing their velvet. You have no restrictions on anything other than a minimum of 8 points or better. You can harvest any size whitetail buck eight point or better, in velvet, for one price. You not only get a velvet buck trophy but the largest Trophy Whitetail Buck each year is still here at this time and you or your group could get a chance at him. These are a premium trophy whitetail hunt and because we are a preserve we can offer this hunt with any weapon of your choosing and well before anyone in Wisconsin (or most states) can pick up a rifle to hunt. We only offer this to a maximum of three hunters per year and it must be in one group as this hunt is only offered once per year. Please contact us directly to discuss pricing for this coveted Trophy Velvet Buck Hunt Package.

Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin is all about traditions. It is a main stay here and a part of fall each year. Some schools have even let out early, entire business’s shut down for the 9 day rifle season. The comradery shared by hunters and the real appreciation from the business’s welcoming out of state hunters and understanding why they travel to Wisconsin in search of that perfect whitetail deer hunting trip. Wisconsin currently holds the number one Typical Whitetail Buck ever harvested with a rifle in the Boone and Crocket record books. This record has stood since the early 1900’s and we strongly believe that larger Wisconsin deer roam our forests today and we know that there are larger deer here on our preserve yet to be harvested.
Balsam Hollow Ranch shares much in common with the rest of the state as far as soil and mineral content. When you add our 47 years of industry experience to our whitetail deer habitat, the rest goes far beyond in many other areas. Supplemental feeding with high quality feed to produce that healthy and well balanced herd. Every whitetail deer on our property has been born right here. Paying close attention to detail and the nurturing and caring for our whitetail fawns and herd gives all of them the potential to grow and flourish. With food plots separated by pine stands, hardwoods, and dense untouched thickets, the landscape is as near perfect as we can make it without losing our Northwoods feel.
