We pride ourselves on being 100% fair chase. Because of this, we can't control when or how the deer move, nor can we control the weather. We do not bait since we are in counties that do not allow baiting. Please do not come to DAO expecting a high fence hunt. Even though we spend all year scouting and know our properties, sometimes Mother Nature just doesn't cooperate with us.
Before arriving at DAO, we ask that you practice with your equipment. We will have targets to shoot at during your hunt, but please make sure your equipment is in tip top shape before arrival.
DAO has a strict 130" minimum gross antler score or 4.5 years old or older policy. If a buck is harvested below these limits, a $750 management fee will be placed and must be paid before you leave DAO.
2 of our farms hold a strict 150” minimum
All hunts require a 50% deposit on the date you book, and the other half is due August 1st. Payments can be made with either check or card. If paying by card please add 3% processing fee please call at 715-579-9774. If you fail to pay by the deadline your spot will be filled by someone else. Deposits are non refundable.
All hunters will be required to wear a safety harness while hunting in a tree stand. We have lifelines attached to every stand and can provide a safety harness if you don't have one. This is a requirement not a choice. We want everyone to go home safely.
Our clients will be sitting in hang on stands, ladder stands, and blinds.
If you make a bad shot on a deer, your hunt is done until the deer is proven to be alive and well. We will get a dog to trail the deer if we can.
The DAO lodge has 7 beds, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen etc
We offer discounts for Vets and handicapped hunters.
DAO is a Wisconsin Hunting Outfitter
