About Us

Bucket List Whitetails is a whitetail deer only game ranch located in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula. The facility is owned and operated by the Luce Family. Owners Elton and Kathy Luce have brought to reality a long-time vision that was to provide a high-quality hunting ranch experience that provides the client the most “bang for their buck”. Located in Western Marquette County, our 600-acre facility specializes in quality whitetail deer and includes guided hunts with complete lodging amenities. All meals are served with hospitality and a “southern flair”, which is attributed to Elton and Kathy’s East Texas roots.


At Bucket List Whitetails, you won’t be staring across wide open fields looking at hundreds of deer. We have kept our preserve wooded and thick to give you an “up north” feel of being in the woods. Because of this, our deer act like free-range animals, that will run off if they wind you or catch some movement!


Our ranch provides reasonable access to other local attractions including shopping in Marquette, Lake
Superior, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, to name a few. We are also located two hours North of Green Bay and historic Lambeau Field. We can accommodate groups of up to six hunters at a time and welcome corporate inquiries as a way to treat your clients! Whether crisp cold air, fall colors, or hunting in snow is your thing, we look forward to serving you and helping to create life-long lasting memories. Come on up and see us, give us a try, and let us cater to you on your “Northwoods Experience”.
