I feel using a per day fee plus harvest fees is a fair pricing scheme.† You donít pay full price if you donít harvest.† My goal is repeat business and so far most of my hunters have returned.† Weíve had some hunters that were after just one particular animal, but came back to hunt the same species or different species.† To date we have only had 2 hunters that never got a chance and didnít have to pay a harvest fee.† 13 years

Processing and Taxidermy

-Animals harvested on the ranch are caped and quartered.† The hunter is responsible for the meat after that.† Bring a cooler or something to transport the meat in.† If time permits, there are local processors that can process the meat for an additional charge.

 

-If you travel by airplane, sometimes airlines require meat to be frozen to travel back.† There are usually additional charges for additional weight and/or quantity.† Be sure and check your airline for more details.

 

-If you desire, a local taxidermist can mount your trophy for an additional fee .† General turn around time is about 6 to 9 months, sometimes less.† Most whitetails can be shipped UPS, but larger animals must be shipped by freight.† We have photos and a price list from the local taxidermist on hand at the lodge.
