Whitetail Deer

Break out the topo maps and compass! Hunting the elusive whitetail in New Hampshire is one of the most rewarding experiences available. Whether you spend one day in the woods with us or several, you will see the passion our guides have for whitetail deer hunting. Hunt our exclusive QDM land and harvest a trophy or hunt the hundreds of acres available to us by landowner permission. We have sturdy tree stands over looking exclusive food plots, hardwood groves and cedar swamps.

Semi-Guided Hunts – Our guides will meet with you long before daylight to discuss tree stand locations, tree cam photos, topo maps and strategies for your morning hunt. We will then take you into one of our comfortable stands or blinds. Later in the morning, each hunter has the opportunity to still hunt on miles of trails as you work your way out of the woods back to the pick-up point for lunch. After Lunch and another strategy session with your guide, we will take you to an evening stand. When the day ends, we will meet you at your stand for the walk out after legal shooting time.

Fully Guided Hunts – This hunt includes being accompanied by one or more of our guides for the entire day. Your guide will spend the day with you in the stand or blind, participate in still hunting opportunities, and will push multiple deer habitats to give you the best opportunity possible.

Semi-guided (no meals). $185 per day
Fully guided (includes breakfast and lunch). $360 per person - two person minimum.

John Fletcher
Co-founder/Owner
Maine and New Hampshire Licensed Guide

John’s love for the outdoors grew as he spent time with his father ice fishing, and exploring the woods as a young boy. When he moved to NH in his 20’s, deer hunting became a passion for him. Over the past 14 years he has harvested at least one deer per year and sometimes more. This success, as well as the passion, has motivated him to begin pursuing a career in guiding, so that he can help others achieve their goals and dreams as well.

When you spend time with John, you will see an “anything outdoors” attitude and that he was born to guide. Not only has John become a successful outdoorsman but he also enjoys helping others be successful as well. Some of his passions are hunting, fishing, canoeing, camping, hiking, mounting biking, and ATV riding.

Now that he has children he has been able to pass down his passion for the outdoors, even helping his son harvest his first whitetail. He is certified in first aid and CPR. So if you have that same passion for the outdoors, and like to have fun, John will do what it takes to make you successful in what ever direction your passion takes you.
