Prices are determined by SCI gross scores. Whitetail deer are divided into 2 categories. One is Typical and the other is Non-Typical. A Typical whitetail can not have more than 15% of his gross inches be non-typical. For example if is a deer is 200 gross, then no more than 30 inches can be non-typical. If a deer is 300 gross then no more than 45 inches can be non-typical. For information on how to score a whitetail deer please refer to an SCI scoring manual. All of our hunts are guided and all hunters will be told what the maximum price is that they will pay for the hunt. There are no surprises and no up charges.
The Trophy hunt is any deer up to 200 gross SCI. These deer are usually 171-200. This hunt is $5,999.
The Bronze Hunt is any deer from 201 to 250. This hunt is $7,999.
The Silver Hunt includes deer from 251 up to 300. This hunt is $9,999.
The Typical – 1 Hunt is up to 190. This hunt is $5,999.
The Typical – 2 Hunt is 191 to 210. This hunt is $7,999.
The Typical – 3 Hunt is 211 to to 230. This hunt is $9,999.

All Typicals over 250 and non-typicals over 300 are priced individually. We also reserve the right to price any deer individually and super clean, huge frame deer can be priced with a premium added in. For example a 190 inch 8 point with very little extras may be priced as high as a 250. Like-wise a super trashy or uneven deer may be discounted.
We also have hunts that are designed for kids and available as an add on to all other hunts. These hunts are called Management Hunts and are for a deer up to 170 SCI. These deer are usually 120 to 170. This hunt price varies depending on size and the animal hunted but is usually $1,500 to $4,500. These deer are usually gone by early October.
Although we can customize any hunt we mainly offer 2 hunts each week of our season. Both hunts are 3 full days of hunting with 3 morning and 3 evening hunts:
“The weekend hunt” will start on Thursday afternoon (arrive on Thursday after lunch) and run through noon on Sunday (hunt Thursday afternoon through Sunday morning and leave by noon).
“The weekday hunt” will have hunters arriving late Sunday and start hunting on Monday morning. They will hunt all day Monday, Tuesday , and Wednesday and leave Wednesday night or first thing Thursday morning.
These hunts are fully guided. If a hunter chooses to use a bow, then he may hunt alone and will be responsible for judging the deer he/she takes. Otherwise the guides will judge all the deer spotted on a hunt. If a guided calls a deer in a certain category, then that’s the maximum the hunter will pay. There are no surprises.
The only “extra charge” would be a gratuity for the people that help make your hunt a success
Non-hunters are welcome as long as there is room. A slight charge of $100/non-hunter may be added to the price.
Deposits are $1,000 per person for hunt.
When booking a hunt, dates are held for 1 week for the deposit to be received. Deposits can be transferred or pushed to another date with 30 days prior notification. However they are all non-refundable.
