A destination as legendary as Deer Creek Lodge isn’t built overnight. The Deer Creek Lodge story began in 1978, when the lodge was established and started building its worldwide reputation for trophy whitetail hunting.
It All Started with Whitetail Hunting
Articles about the lodge’s amazing whitetail hunting offerings appeared in several magazines and newspapers, spreading the word to outdoor enthusiasts everywhere.
Features ran in Buckmasters, Sporting Classics, North American Whitetail, Deer & Deer Hunting, Bowhunter, Bow & Arrow, Barron’s Outdoor Guide, Deer & Big Game Bowhunting, Bass Pro Shop’s Outdoor World, Advanced Deer Hunting and Whitetail Monster Bucks.
A variety of nationally distributed videos and nationally broadcast television shows were also filmed on location, including Jimmy Houston Outdoors, AdventureBound Outdoors, Buckmasters, and Kids Hooked on the Outdoors.
Wing Shooting Explodes
Later the lodge would add to its growing fame by also becoming renowned for unsurpassed wing shooting. Wing shooting accolades from Orvis in 2001, 2006-2007 and again in 2014 recognized what many of our guests had already come to appreciate about Deer Creek Lodge: the hard-flying birds, luxurious lodging, delicious cuisine, and genuine southern hospitality.
Once again, magazines, television, and videos carried the news nationwide, by depicting the wing shooting opportunities at Deer Creek. Articles appeared in The Double Gun Journal, Shooting Sportsman, Gray’s Sporting Journal, Sporting Classics, Sporting Clays, Wildfowl, Wing & Shot, North America’s Greatest Bird Hunting Lodges and Preserves, Wingshooter’s World, and the revered Bird Hunting Report.

All the while, dedicated Deer Creek personnel continued to add new offerings to thrill our guests.
