I have been hunting and loving the outdoors as far back as I can remember, starting with my bb gun at age 8 to shooting my first deer with my dad at the age of 12.  That was the beginning of my life long addiction for pursuing whitetails.  Since then, I have become a Whitetail Fanatic and have been blessed to have taken numerous Trophy deer with both my bow and gun.  Even when the hunting season is closed you can still find me in the woods, scouting, planning, and preparing for the upcoming year.  Now I am passing these traditions down to my son who shot his first deer at age of 10.  Since starting my business, I've also had numerous happy clients go home with trophy whitetails.  And now have over 10 years in business.

JW Outfitters is located in central Wisconsin, most of the parcels are in Section 65A, with over 1000 acres of privately owned Quality Deer Management  land.  The area is surrounded by lakes, ponds, agricultural land and Christmas tree fields. Our woods consist of mature oaks, Norway pine and white pine.  The land has been in my family for over 50 years, and has been in deer management for over 20 years.  I have more than 20 stands to pick from, depending on the weather.  The area is one of the top B&C\P&Y areas in Wisconsin according to the newly updated distribution map.  The land has little to no hunting pressure, and I practice an 8 point minimum harvest on bucks (125P&Y). 


All deer on the property are 100% wild and free-roaming, and hunting is fair chase.  I can't control mother nature, nor can I give you a magical four-leaf clover to guarantee you will go home with a trophy.  However, I can guarantee the monster bucks that you're looking for are here, and i'll do my best to make sure you get one and treat you like part of the family.

   I would like to invite you on the hunting trip of a lifetime in the heartland of Central Wisconsin.  This is where trophy bucks thrive, wild turkeys are in abundance, and black bear call home.  The land you will be hunting with JW Outfitters has all the key elements to provide the natural habitat for these animals to thrive, mature and producing trophy animals, making it a true hunter's paradise.

  • Had my first bear hunt this year. It was an excellent experience, upon arrival Joe brought me to all the baits to re-bait and swap memory cards. 3 of the 4 nights I hunted it was raining. But saw bears on 2 of those. All 4 bait sites were active. I shot a quality bear on my 4th night. The properties are top notch, the hospitality was great, and what started out as a business relationship turned into a friendship. Can’t wait to get back out there for another hunt!

  • Upon arrival, Joe gave me a quick tour of the farm and Joe pointed me to a good spot to setup for the morning. I ended up between 2 gobblers the first morning and tagged one within an hour of daylight. Great property and setup. Thanks for a great trip.

  • These properties really have nice bucks, all seem to be pope and young and bigger.  Joe really works hard to put his clients on deer.  He has more land and stands than any one man can hunt in a week.  Great Lodging, wife stayed and enjoyed the lodging also. I shot a Buck of a lifetime that scored well over 140!!!

  • Joe, I wanted to thank you again for a great hunt this year.  The accommodations were great and I was able to connect on another great buck.  You've definitely got good genetics and great deer habitat.  I highly recommend your operation and am looking forward to hunting with you again. (two time returning hunter and tagging out with a 139, 134 pope and young)

  • Joe has excellent hunting property with great accommodations... thanks again for helping me get a monster Wisconsin whitetail.


Jeff Stewart - Flat Rock, AL


  • Saw plenty of deer one shooter that would have scored well over 150/b/c but fading light wouldn't allow a shot.  Joe worked hard to get me on a real trophy buck.  I would definitely suggest trying your services to anyone.  Keep up the great work and I had a blast hunting at your place.
