Preparing For Your Hunt

Being mentally and physically prepared for your hunt will help ensure that everyone, including Ranch staff, will have a most enjoyable and productive hunt.

Prior to the hunt, Ranch will send client a thorough Prep Packet that should answer most of the questions regarding what to bring, travel arrangements, hunting license, etc. Be sure to carefully read and understand this information. For weather conditions, go to the Ranch’s website for this information.

Practice shooting. We cannot emphasize the importance of practicing at the shooting range. Don’t just site in your gun. Practice! A checking of you and your gun’s accuracy will take place at the Ranch prior to any big game hunting. No Exceptions!

Hunter needs to be ready to make shots up to possibly 250 yards. Deer may or may not come to the feeder, so the hunter needs to be ready for this. Quality practice will ensure a better opportunity for a kill. However, the hunter must remember that this is hunting and not target shooting. The Ranch will provide you with an opportunity to shoot an animal, but the rest is up to you.

Shipping of Trophies

Should Ranch have to ship cape and antlers to client’s requested destination, client will be charged for shipping charges, as well as a Ranch service charge for crating/handling.

Reproduction of Trophies

Ranch reserves the right to reproduce trophies harvested to use in any of our promotional materials, advertising, website, brochures, etc.
