All of our hunting areas are large and give the hunting groups plenty of room to move around. You may bring as many people as you like for hunting experience. We do ask that you limit your hunting groups to a maximum of 5-6 people per hunting area. This is to ensure the safety and quality of every hunter. Our hunting areas are intentionally kept as close to natural conditions, except that the availability of game is more plentiful. We give both the hunter and the hunted an opportunity.
