Frequently Asked Questions

The website is updated daily and will show if a certain week is full or if there are spots available. We will only run a certain amount of hunters on each property the entire season.
The local motel we use costs around $50 a night for a single room and $60 for a double. If you come with a group you’ll have about $150 each for the room, around $258 for license and tag, and then whatever you spend on food. Processing and deer capping will be around $150. So, if you harvest a deer and stay the full 5 days and get it processed and capped out it’ll be an additional $515-$615 depending on how much you spend on food.
Yes, we target 4 year old bucks and older and have a 140 minimum. Bucks that are mature and score over 130 but less than 140 can be taken and we will show you trail cam pictures of them beforehand. More than likely they will be 8 points. There is a $1,000 penalty for shooting an immature buck and we will discuss that before you book.
We utilize a team of close friends and family members depending on where you are hunting. We invest a lot of time and resources in locating big deer with the use of wireless Spartan cameras and the best and most comfortable/safe stands and ground blinds. All of the people that help are trustworthy nice people.
We recommend Bakers Motel in Norwich but you are welcome to stay at another hotel or airbnb. We recommend Bakers because you can back your truck right up to the door and it’s centrally located from the properties. In my opinion, Big Fancy lodges are a waste of money and have nothing to do with the quality of the properties you’ll be hunting. It’s an added expense that requires running more hunters on the property just to pay for the lodge, utilities, and food. As far as food is concerned, there are deli’s nearby and every restaurant chain you could think of within a 20 minute drive.
We will track and recover your deer and field dress it for you unless you prefer to field dress it. Your deer can be processed within 24 hours from a local processor and it costs $150 for rush processing. We will take your trophy to him and he will refrigerate your meat until you leave. Most of our hunters take their bucks to our local taxidermist and his turnaround time is amazing. It’s around 2-3 months. If you want to have your deer capped out at the processor, it’ll cost $25. Our taxidermist charges $650 for a shoulder mount. We recommend a tracking dog if it is a marginal shot. We use the best tracking dog in Ohio and the cost is $400.
This is a tough question to answer because we’ve had hunters get out every day from 11-2. That means you’re disturbing the woods and spreading scent 4 different times throughout the day. Your chances will go down tremendously if you do this. If you aren’t able to sit all day, I recommend going in late morning and sitting until dark. We provide the most comfortable stands and ground blinds so you can stay as long as possible.
