Nebraska – Whitetail

Occupying three miles of Platte river bottom and over 5,000 acres of
Cheyenne Ridge Outfitters-owned land, the Outpost invites you to enjoy some of
the best whitetail hunting the Midwest has to offer.  The river bottom habitat along the Platte is
ideal for allowing whitetails to reach maturity and their full potential. We
only take a hand full of hunters at this destination each season assuring the
trophy quality is kept at a very high level. Outside of the state of Texas you
will not find a higher success rate for free range whitetails.


The majority of the hunting at the North Platte Outpost takes place out of tripod
stands in the river bottoms along the Platte. Often we intercept bucks as the cruise
for does or return to their bedding areas from the surrounding agriculture
fields. Once the corn is harvested in the surrounding agriculture fields all the
deer pile into the habitat along the river, this creates a density of trophy
whitetails that are rarely seen outside of the Texas brush country. Our gun season
is during the peak of the rut so rattling can be terribly effective during that


The habitat surrounding the Platte River bottom is the ideal situation for growing
trophy whitetails. The combination of agricultural land bordering the river
system and its tributaries allows bucks to reach maturity and their full
potential. In addition we have strategically placed food plots interspersed
thru the river bottom which becomes the primary food source once the corn is


Archery season runs from mid September thru the end of December. Rifle
season is mid November and typically runs for eight days. Muzzleloader season runs
the month of December.


The accommodations, food and service at the North Platte Outpost are what
set this operation apart from much of the competition.  With room for up
to 12 guests the Outpost is well known as the perfect place to entertain
corporate clients or family members.  Large spacious great rooms with
large flat screen TV’s, fully stocked bars, comfortable beds with down
comforters, massage room with professionally trained masseuse all adds to the
comfort for the lodge. After a successful day afield return to a true culinary
experience at the lodge. Start with hors d’oeuvres like smoked pheasant dip
followed by entrees such as roasted prime rib of beef with au jus, goat cheese
and basil stuffed chicken breast, or apple wood smoked bacon wrapped duck

Getting there
