The Double R Guest Ranch offers some of the finest deer hunting in the Sand Hills.
We are located in the middle-interior of the vast, sparsely-populated Sand Hills. The region is teeming with wildlife of a wide variety.
White-tail and Mule Deer Abound! Many deer are here year-round and don't seem discouraged by the cattle grazing close by. Many trophy deer are taken each hunting season directly from the Double R Guest Ranch's lands be it rifle, muzzleloader, or bow and arrow.
“The Sand Hills Management Unit has the highest percentage of mature, trophy-Whitetail Deer, and it should, it has been managed as a Trophy Unit since 1991.”Program Manager

These Nebraska Deer Hunters will find that this high country terrain is made for hiking and ATV travel when drive you must! The hills are high, rugged, sandy, grass-covered dunes just made for climbing as you Spot and Stalk.
The heavily grassed, low-land marshes, on this Nebraska Ranch have three spring-fed lakes which attract additional wild life that adds to the adventurous challenge of the hunt.
You can expect to find a very good population of deer. We are happy to have the hunters that help with population control when we hear that they have fulfilled their hunting permits with the deer of their dreams.
In general no guide is necessary, but if you wish to obtain a guide, names and contact information for local guides can hopefully be located upon request. Obtaining, scheduling, and payment of the Guide would be the sole responsibility of the hunter.
Deer hunters should have no difficulty fulfilling their permits! Our deer hunts are all no-guarantee deer hunts and no refunds are authorized.

Any price increases would be your obligation when you check-in that next fall.
The Nebraska deer hunt fees include the right to hunt, the in-season waterfowl, upland birds, coyote (no permit needed), and small game with the proper hunting permits and guns.
