Best whitetail experience of my life. Steve was an awesome host and he and Shane helped me select the best spots to hunt. Their goal is to have friends, not just clients and that is what happened, along with meeting other great people over the course of my time there. Not to mention seeing more deer than I ever have and being able to be selective. Highly recommend hunting with Briggs Outdoors and Steve Briggs.

The fall 2014 whitetail deer hunting season was our best ever. We’re now taking reservations for the 2015 season; in the meantime, check out the video, slideshow, and blog posts about previous hunts at the bottom of the page.

All deer hunting reservations must be made by calling or e-mailing Steve directly: 507-450-9902 or e-mail briggsoutdoors@gmail.comWe’ve blocked out the online reservation calendar to reserve the deer hunt season for hunters, so if you try to reserve a date online, it’ll look booked.
