What should you expect?

You will arrive on Sunday afternoon and get acquainted with camp. There will be a camp meeting that evening for rules, etc. The hunt starts Monday morning; you will be transported to your location by one of the guides every time out to hunt. We pick the stands determined by wind direction, time of year, phases of movement, and current scouting information from trail cams to personal experience.

You can expect to hunt from hang on stands with ladder sticks, ladder stands, and ground blinds all strategically placed for the best shot opportunity possible. Each hunter is responsible for scent control, safety precautions (such as a safety harness), and practicing with your weapon before you arrive. You will not be allowed to hunt without a safety harness!

Fine Print

We have a 140” gross minimum on 90% of our farms and a 135” minimum on a few farms that are harder to manage because of the size (these farms are still great tracts for a true trophy).

There is a fine of $800.00 if you shoot a deer under the minimum size requirement. If you draw blood on a deer from a bad or faulty shot and it cannot be recovered your hunt is over. If you choose, you may pay a wounding fee of $600.00 and you will be allowed to finish your hunt. These rules are in place to keep our management goals on track and to discourage clients from taking poor shots.

There are times we will allow a client to shoot a below minimum buck that we consider a cull buck. Wicked Ridge was created for the hunter that has a true understanding of what hunting mature bucks is all about or would like to learn and invest in our program. Please note, this is a wild hunt and there are no guarantees that you will be successful. We will do our best to make it happen but we will not drive deer for any reason.

No refunds or exchanges.
