About Autumn Antlers

Minnesota's Trophy Paradise

Our Story

It started with a vision to create an experience.

Autumn Antlers was founded in 2006 by a group of outdoorsmen who wanted Minnesota to be a place to hunt trophy Whitetail Deer and more. Since day one, we’ve been providing the experience of trophy animals combined with gourmet meals in a compelling lodge setting with exceptional service. 

We offer a truly authentic five star atmosphere set in the beautiful backwoods of the North Star State. Our big-game hunting preserve is located in Central Minnesota, 130 miles Northwest of Minneapolis. Through the careful management of genetics, herd size, and nutrients, we continue to achieve world-class trophy herds that attract hunters from around the world. No matter where you’re from, we welcome you to Autumn Antlers.

Our Group

The Autumn Antlers team includes original founder, “Uncle Denny,” who remains highly involved in the vision of our lodge. With more than 20 years of experience in the deer and trophy hunting industry, he brings a wealth of knowledge to our dedicated team of owners, managers, and professional hunting guides.
