BUCK HUNTING

Buck hunts cost $3,400

You are allowed to take one Trophy Buck, One spike, and Two doe

A total of 18 hunters are allowed per weekend

Food and lodging are provided and all hunts are guided.

Each Guide has his own country. No one hunts in it but his hunters. He has 2 hunters per hunt. So he has to divid his time equally

ALL Guides know their Country and know how BEST to hunt it. You will have a Quality hunt, and a memorable experience.

On ALL Hunts, Hunters arrive Friday afternoon, in time to use the gun range.

Hunters Hunt Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and are allowed to stay till Tuesday morning.

Guides field dress, skin, and quarter all deer, placing the meat in clear plastic bags, and keeping them in a cooler kept at 34 degrees. Hunters must bring their own Ice Chest's

A guide is insulted if he receives less than $300 per Trophy Buck killed for the weekend hunt. Many times a guide will receive $400-$500 per Trophy Buck for a weekend hunt. If you feel your guide does not deserve a tip, take the issue up with Ranch Manger Forrest Armke.


With One Buck for every two Doe expect to see lots of rut activity. So bring your video cameras to film this action AFTER you get your Trophy Buck


MANAGEMENT BUCK POLICY

Depending on availability, for $800 dollars extra (a total of $4,200) you are allowed to take One Trophy Buck one Management Buck (MUST be approved by guide) and three Doe
