Hopkins Creek Whitetails began as the dream of a frustrated Michigan hunter. Like many, Trent was frustrated by the short hunting season, and a lack of quality trophy whitetail deer and relaxing fishing. A dream, once just an idea, became a passion, in 2013 Hopkins Creek Whitetails Hunting will open its gates to the public for the first time.

Hopkins Creek Whitetails is 120 Acres of hardwood forest, cedar swamp, grasslands, designated trout stream, and farmlands located in Northern Michigan. This trophy whitetail ranch is a breath of fresh air with amazing typical bucks. We are dedicated to producing the highest quality Michigan bucks and have selected some of the best genetics in the country. Hunt with the weapon of your choice in August for trophy bucks in velvet and September-January for hard horned trophy whitetails.

We offer multiple hunting blinds that are spaced out throughout our natural food plots and watering holes. In addition to hunting we also offer trout fishing on the Hopkins Creek; a very well known trout stream.

Imagine staying at a beautiful new hunting lodge with an amazing view of some of the biggest bucks you will ever see. Your view also includes beautiful Christmas trees, cedar swamps, lush food plats and hardwoods. We are very excited to welcome you and hope to see you this deer hunting season!
