Pasture assignments: (copy from INFO)
We have had some complaints from hunters that "favoritism" is
going on and we are saving pastures for certain hunters. This
is not the case.
If a hunter get the same pasture as the previous year it is
coincidental. All of the pastures are assigned before check-in
and in most cases hunters are given the choice of open
pastures. All of the areas have excellent hunting and when we
are booked (10 hunters) each hunter has a bunch of
acres to themselves. We place hunters in a pasture according
to group size and the placement is controlled by the hunting
Once you are assigned a location
you cannot jump to a different location without permission
from the hunting manager.
questions pertaining to game size, weight, quantity or type requirements
will be re-emphasized upon arrival.
YOU MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE IF ANY OF THESE RULES ARE NOT FOLLOWED
AND WILL FORFEIT ALL HUNT MONEY.
