Our hunts are conducted on privately owned Kentucky land. We meet with our clients the day before the hunt and provide a tour of the property and when possible. We provide a detailed map to the property and an aeral or topo map (stands are clearly marked) to insure you know how to find your stands and are comfortable in doing so. You will have a minimum of 2 stands available to you. The farm you hunt will be your farm for the entire hunt. We are very selective in the properties we choose, so you can rest assured you are in a prime location. We consider wind direction, hunting pressure and all available variables when choosing stand locations. We will give 110% effort to insure you the best huntpossible.
NOTE: We cannot control the weather, people or deer movement. If it is hot here in the midwest deer movement will be slow with only the younger deer moving. Please understand this is not the norm but please keep it in mind. If you are the type of hunter who can't sit still, hunts only a couple of hours or smokes in your stand, you will very likely have an unsuccessful hunt.
Our stands are commercially built ladder stands, tripod stands, or blinds. They will be placed with the best available cover. If you require a shooting rest, we suggest you bring along a shooting stick to insure you are ready for the big shot.
FALL RESTRAIN DEVICES are REQUIRED.
You will be required to wear a saftey belt or fall restraint device at all times while hunting in an elevated stand during your visit with us. There are no exceptions. You must bring this with you. Please check our CHECK LIST for other required must bring items.

We can recommend a lodging destination that is nearest to your hunting area to keep your travel to a minimum.

The success of your hunt is very much up to you. Here is a few tips to help improve your odds of success Please do not try to guide the guides. We are experienced hunters and have hunted this area for a combined 60 plus years. What works where you live may not work here. Although we do not ban smoking, we do believe that the odor of smoke will stay in your vehicle, clothing and hunting gear. We know for a fact that deer do not smoke and therefore it is logical to think they might be alarmed by you if you smell of smoke.
If you smoke that is your choice, however be very aware that we do not allow smoking on our property. If we find evidence that you are smoking on our property or in our stands, you will be asked to leave without a refund. We are very serious about this so please take it into consideration before booking a hunt with us.
