The High Fence Hunt is conducted on 2000 acres. This hunt can be a challenging hunt due to the size of the enclosure. The high fence hunts are limited to 3 hunters at a time to give each hunter the best opportunity to harvest a buck that meets his expectations.
Trophy hunts are available for rifle or archery hunters on any 3 or 4 consecutive days from October 1st through the end of February. During the Texas general firearms season, November 6th - January 2nd, these hunts will be booked in conjunction with the low fence hunt dates. All animals harvested on a Trophy Hunt will be tagged with a MLD III tag (Managed Land Deer) and will NOT count towards the hunters Texas license limit.
Management and trophy hunts are conducted in the high fence. Management hunts are for mainframe 8 and 9 points that have reached maturity but lack desired antler characteristics. Management hunts are $2900 with a $1500 deposit. Trophy hunts are priced using a sliding scale based on the gross B&C score of the buck harvested. Trophy Hunt Pricing is as follows: up to 150 B&C $4,200; 150 1/8 to 170 B&C $5,750; 170 1/8 to 190 B&C $7,750; 190 1/8 to 200 B&C $9,000; 200 1/8 B&C $10,000 + $100 an inch for every inch over 200 B&C.
Trophy hunts require a $2,500 deposit. The deposit is subtracted from the prices listed above. The final balance will be due upon the harvest of an animal. Your guide will estimate the score of the deer on the hoof. In the event of a discrepancy, the benefit will go to the hunter. If the guide says a buck is in the low 170’s and ends up scoring 169, the hunter pays for that price range deer. In the event of harvesting a 200+ animal, the hunter pays according to the final score of the animal.

Hunt the Belle Fourche River drainage in eastern Wyoming where hunters can see a dozen or more bucks in a day. This is an action packed hunt with lots of game and beautiful scenery. An added bonus is that you can use a rifle during the rut. Bow hunts are conducted in mid to late September when the bucks are very predictable in their daily movements.
This outfitter leases a tremendous amount land to spread out pressure. The better bucks score from 120-140 with the top end being 150. Also if a whitetail hunter sees a mule deer that he wants to harvest, he can do that and pay the difference in price between a whitetail hunt and mule deer hunt. Success rate has been 100% for rifle hunters and 95% for bow hunters. I hunted here in 2011, with a group of friends, and the best bucks we took scored between 125 and 150. We saw hundreds of bucks between us - I saw approximately 60 on the 4 day hunt.
Hunting is normally done by driving around the ranches, still hunting or hunting out of elevated shooting boxes or tree stands.
