Why Hunt with Bristle Ridge?

 Bristle Ridge Whitetails offers self guided whitetail hunts in NW Missouri. These hunts are for experienced hunters who enjoy hunting on their own, scouting properties, and making decisions in the field.  After many seasons and contacts with out-of-state hunters, we found that most experienced hunters looking for out of state whitetail hunts in the Midwest are not wanting a fully-guided hunt. They want to hunt how they like to hunt and at their own pace! They do not want to be told where to sit for 5-days even tho they are not seeing deer. They want low pressured private properties with excellent habitat for whitetails. This is what we strive for, providing affordable hunts on quality top notch managed properties with minimal pressure. Hunts are on a limited basis each year to assure each hunter is hunting on a fresh farm without pressure being an issue.



​We have many options available to best accommodate all price points of a hunt.  You can hunt by the day, with or without lodging, and with or without meals.  We arrange options to best fit your budget.

Packaged hunts at Bristle Ridge Whitetails includes:

 - 5-day hunt.

- Lodging at the beautiful Mozingo Lake cabins.​

- Groceries for quick meals.​

​- Snacks and drinks (cold food, microwave and refrigerator on site).


Each hunter is responsible for the cleaning and prepping of their harvested whitetail.  Assistance is available if needed.  ​




​Lodging at Bristle Ridge is a peaceful cabin on Mozingo Lake located just outside of Maryville Missouri.  A beautiful setting with plentiful fishing and one of the top rated public golf courses in Missouri!






​ We have stands in place ready to hunt, but we do encourage hunters to bring a stand(s) with them if they would prefer hunting an area where we have not placed a stand.   We try to place stands in the best place, but not all areas are covered.  Provided stands are typically lock-on stands and or ladder stands.

​Booking your hunt at Bristle Ridge is as simple as making a phone call.  50% of agreed upon price is due at the time of booking to lock down your dates to hunt.  Deposits can be paid in cash, check, or money order.  Like mentioned above, limited spots are open each year so please don't hesitate to call and book your hunt.​​
