About the Hunt Provider:

Veteran owned and operated hunt provider with over 20 years experience.  Depending upon the number in your hunting party there will be three guides serving you. The average is a 1 to 4 hunters to guide ratio. There is no guarantee of game harvest, but average shot opportunity rate is high.

Early bookings have the opportunity to secure a cabin at the ranch which have shower, toilet, beds, refrigerator, stove and all cooking / eating utensils. Bring your own sleeping bag. Accommodations will be basic.  The hunt provider and ranch is full of history and down home pleasures.

Your transportation to and from the ranch is up to you unless otherwise agreed upon in your contract. ATV’s are recommended but the use of your ATV will only be where instructed.  Any damages to land by misuse of your ATV will be an additional cost to you.  If you bring your own ATVs and side by sides they must have silenced mufflers to keep noise down.

Due to the growing concern of CWD you may have your game tested upon your request. If you wish to donate your meat and only take your horns, you may do so; but will still be asked to pay for the processing.
