1.     Is there a deposit required?

        A 50% deposit is required to secure your hunting reservation.

2.     What quality/size of animals can I expect to see and hunt?

        It is quite typical during the hunt day to see multiple mature whitetail bucks in the

       140"-150"  class.  We  also have a good population of whitetails that are in the 150"-170"

        range.  Our  largest buck to date was harvested in 2014 and had a gross score of 209".  

        However, once  again, we do not guarantee harvest or size.    

        A typical mule deer in this area is 24"-26" wide and scores in the 150"-170"  range. 

        We have harvested mule deer bucks approaching 200" in the past.
