Harding Gamebirds Archery & Rifle Deer Information

Since we are located in the heart of the Midwest in Northwest Missouri, we have some of the best Whitetail Missouri bow and rifle Deer and wild Missouri Turkey hunting available. Our family has lived and hunted this land for over 100 years. We own or control over 5,000 acres of the most desirable archery and rifle deer and turkey land. We have hardwood timber consisting of mature hickory, oak and walnut trees for Missouri Turkey to roost in and Missouri whitetail Deer to roam through. On our hunting acres we also have open crop fields of corn and soybeans, CRP fields, pastures and hay ground with some draws and combinations of the above. We have food plots set out that the Whitetail Deer and wild Turkeys run in every day. Whitetail Missouri Deer and wild Missouri Turkey can be seen daily on our land which is solely reserved for our hunters. We spread our hunters out and limit the number of hunters we take so everyone has plenty of room to move around in their area. We pride ourselves on our level of service, quality Whitetail Deer and wild turkey, competitive prices and memorable hunts. Our hunts will make you want to come back again and again. Whether it is archery or rifle Whitetail Deer or wild Turkey hunting we have the right hunt for you. Our archery deer hunts consist of 6 day hunts starting on Saturdays of each week and ending on Thursdays with Friday used to move in to scout area and get set up or take stands down after the hunt. The archery deer hunts consist of 1 buck, 1 doe, and 2 turkeys. The rifle season consist of one buck or doe.

All hunts are semi guided; we will give you maps of your area, take you there and tell you about where we have been getting pictures of deer/turkeys in the area. From there hunters transport themselves to and from the managed property and make tree stand adjustments as deer movements dictates. It is important that you bring a portable tree stand with you so you can adjust to deer movement. We have a heated faculty to clean deer and will help you get your deer out of the timber. We also have a processing facility within 3 miles for those who prefer to have them process you meat. This is truly a hunter’s paradise. We have several hotels 10 minutes away, several restaurants and fast food places that are located just 3 miles off of I-35 interstate. They do get booked fast during hunting season, so plan early.
