This hunt takes place on some of Eastern Montana’s finest whitetail country. The land is made up of river bottoms with large hay and grain fields leading up to rolling grasslands with broken patches of trees and brush spread throughout the hills.
If you are looking for a hunt where you can see a lot of deer and don’t need to kill a Boone and Crockett buck, this is one to consider. Deer numbers are good as they tend to be concentrated along the river bottoms. Bucks typically score from 120-150.
Both archery and rifle hunts are held. Bow hunts are primarily stand hunts while rifle hunts employ both stands and spot and stalk.
These hunts are held in “General Units” and the draw odds have been 100% with no bonus points. Archery season is September 3 – October 16 and rifle season is October 22 – November 27.
License cost is $597. Bow hunters are also required to buy an archery license ($10) in addition to the deer license. Application deadline is March 15.

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.
Both the free range and high fence hunts require a General Non-Resident Hunting License for $315. For ages 16 and under, the only license required is the Youth Hunting License for $7. License are unlimited and there is no draw required.

This hunt is primarily a bow hunting operation with limited rifle hunts. The outfitter has over a dozen properties totaling 10,000 acres.
Hunting is out of ladder stands, tripods and shooting boxes. The terrain is flat to rolling consisting of ag crops, weed fields, scrub oaks and timbered shelter belts. A feeding program is in place.
This is a great hunt for someone that likes to look at a lot of deer. For those that can hold off, the odds are very good of killing a 130 or better. Hunters are asked to refrain from shooting bucks scoring under 120. In 2010 two bucks between 155-159 were killed. One mature buck and one doe can be taken. This area does not have a lot of hogs but they can be taken if seen for no additional fee.
The outfitter will show hunters the property they will hunt, boundaries and the stand sites. Meals and lodging are not included but there are multiple options for hotels and restaurants in town. Hunters can also bring their own camper and camp on one of the ranches.
Bow hunts are held from early October until early January and rifle hunts are held from early November to early January. Licenses are over-the-counter and cost $315 - buck and doe tags included.
