This past January I purchased and am now running Fin-N-Bone Outfitters in southeast Minnesota, in addition to my Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri properties. My Minnesota properties, located in the Houston, Fillmore, and Winona counties, are situated in the bluff country of Minnesota. Just like the bluff country in Buffalo County Wisconsin, Minnesota's bluff country is known for its trophy deer. Fin-N-Bone Outfitters has a long history of taking some great deer over the years and I'm excited to continue that tradition as we look forward to our first year in Minnesota. These hunts will be run just like my Wisconsin hunts with all food and lodging provided. Minnesota tags are over-the-counter so there is no issue with a draw system and you can get a tag every year.
If you are a bow hunter, I am running three weeks of archery hunts. I will be doing the opener week in September and then the last two weeks of October into the first couple days of November. If you are a gun hunter, you get to hunt the RUT during gun season. The gun season in Minnesota starts the first weekend in November so you will be hunting right during the chase period and the full blown rut. You never know what is going to show up that time of year with gun in hand.
If you want to see more of what Fin-N-Bone Outfitters is about and what they've shot in the past, you can go to that website www.fin-n-bone.com and take a look. Note: starting this year in 2023, I will be updating Minnesota pictures (trail cam pictures, harvest photos, etc) to the buffalocountyoutfitters website. You can go into the Minnesota portion of the new buffalocountyoutfitters website to get updated information and pictures starting in 2023. I will be transitioning all the Fin-N-Bone information to the buffalocountyoutfitters site over the next year or two and then will eventually be shutting down the Fin-N-Bone site. You will see that Fin-N-Bone also offered fishing trips. I will not be doing fishing trips and will just be doing the trophy whitetail hunts.
So if you are looking for another opportunity for big deer, we are excited to be offering hunts now in southeast Minnesota this 2023 season.
