Tools of the Trade

You can bring what ever weapon you choose for your hunt whether it would be a bow, crossbow, rifle, shotgun, pistol or muzzleloader.

 

Sighting in your rifle before you come will save you time during your stay. We will just have you fire a shot or two at our range to make sure your weapon wasn’t bumped from traveling.

 

A good pair of binoculars and some rain gear can also come in handy during your hunt.

For rifles, we recommend using a 243 caliber rifle or larger.

The average shot is within 100 yards but the experienced marksman can have opportunity to shoot much further.

Food

We will supply all of your meals, snacks, and drinks other than alcohol.

We provide an assortment of wines for diner.

Your Trophy

If you are looking to take your trophy home with you, plan on bringing the appropriate size cooler to fit the meat, antlers and cape into.
