Notes from the landowner

Hot Box is a DIY whitetail deer hunting property located directly north of Lathrop, MO. This property consists of over 260 acres of quality hunting land. In it you will find several sources of water, plenty of food for deer, as well as some fingers of timber that provide ample bedding cover for game. This area is known for producing great deer! These are 7-day hunts, so by booking the first day of your trip you are automatically booked for the following 6 as well. These will be muzzleloader only hunts for the 2023 season.

Game and habitat information

This property near Lathrop, Missouri boasts an ideal environment for large whitetail deer, with its diverse range of biological habitats, including a riverbed, hardwood forests, and agricultural fields. Whitetail deer are abundant in the area, especially during the rut, attracted to the various food sources provided by the agricultural fields, as well as the shelter and cover provided by the hardwood forests. The deer travel along the creek beds and timber draws, where stands are selectively placed. The hardwood forests offer excellent cover for deer, making it an ideal location for hunters to set up in tree stands and wait for deer to pass by. The dense tree lines also provide a rich source of food for deer, with a mix of deciduous species such as oaks, maples, and hickories (all acorn producers), nuts, and other food sources throughout the year. In addition, the agricultural fields provide an abundance of food for deer, as crops such as corn, soybeans, and wheat are highly attractive to the animals. However, this also means that hunters must be strategic in their approach, as the deer can be highly unpredictable and may not follow predictable patterns. Deer numbers increase during the rut and can be great muzzleloader season.
