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.

Non-Typical Pricing:

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.

Typical Pricing:

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.

The Typical - 4 Hunt is 231 to 250. This hunt is $11,999.

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.

We love to see the families come out and hunt and try to make it a great place to bring the whole gang! So ask about any family packages. We are still growing our herd in 2017 but may have some doe hunts in late 2018.

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. In 2017, we recommend bow hunters book from September 8th to October 8th. After October 8th we encourage you to bring a rifle. However, any hunter can use any weapon of their choosing at any time (bow, pistol, crossbow, muzzleloader, etc.).

We specialize in big pretty framed whitetail deer. Occasionally we will have a few huge bull elk and some red stags. These are priced at the beginning of each season and our prices are based on the years growing conditions. Just ask if you are interested in those species. We have taken elk over 500 inches.

If blood is drawn, then the animal is considered "taken by the hunter". We will do everything possible to help recover a wounded animal. Occasionally a hunter will have to leave without their trophy. We always guarantee they either get their trophy or their money credited toward another hunt (minus $1,500 for the current hunt). We usually find them within a few days after they leave.


We will consider group discounts on groups of 8 or more booked together.

We offer Father/son/daughter or Mother/son/daughter discounts on kids under 18 when hunting deer over 170. Ask about those discounts in advance.

Exclusive bow hunts are offered early in the year during the month of September. Just text Sam to ask about the details (573-590-1459).


The price of all hunts includes all licenses, up to 3 days of hunting, lodging, skinning, de-boning, caping, and all meals:

Extra Charges:

Along with sales tax, the only "extra charge" would be a gratuity for the people that help make your hunt a success

Non Hunters:

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 $1,500 per person for hunts up to 200 and $2,500/person on all other hunts.

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.


Good Luck in 2018!
