Early Season Archery

The hunt is a 4-day, 5-night all-inclusive hunt including lodging & meals.

The Premier Outfitters early-season archery velvet hunt takes place on the first Saturday of September. Included with your hunt is full lodging and three meals daily to include snacks and evening beverages. Your hunt will be led by a seasoned professional guide and we will transport you to and from the hunting areas. Finally, we provide field dressing and capping of your harvest to offer you the complete adventure.

For this hunt, you'll be allowed to harvest a buck of a minimum body weight of 190 lbs and/or bucks will have a minimum 5 inch mass measurement at the H1 measurement, antler base and a doe.

Kentucky is one of the few states in the US that offer the opportunity to harvest a velvet buck. Historically Kentucky ranks #1 for producing giant Boone & Crockett caliber bucks. This is the perfect time to be the first hunter on stand for the season.

Typically, our velvet hunts take place during the afternoons on established supplemental food plots, standing soy bean fields, freshly harvested corn fields and strategically placed feeding stations.

The professional guides at Premier Outfitters have spent countless hours patterning targeted trophy bucks prior to your hunt and have placed numerous stands to get you up close and personal with your dream buck.

Hunters can expect to hunt from a combination of comfortable lock-on and ladder stands.

All hunters will be provided with recent trail camera photos of the bucks recommended for harvesting in their assigned areas.

It is not uncommon for our hunters to see large bachelor groups of mature bucks while on stand during our early season velvet hunt that include world class caliber bucks.
