"NY DEER, ELK & STAG TROPHY HUNTS"
It is our goal as managers of the preserve to provide hunters with the opportunity to harvest the buck of a lifetime and nearly everyone who has hunted with us has been able to take the biggest buck of their lives. We offer a 100% success rate.
We have gone to great lengths in offering the hunting public as ethical and challenging a hunt as possible. We can custom tailor a hunt to meet your specific needs. Whether you are a bow-hunter or prefer to hunt with a gun, we will accomodate your style of hunting.
Since offering our first hunts, we have had an almost 100% rebooking percentage. We take pride in this fact and believe it to be a testament to not just the quality of the animals, but the overall hunting experience that we provide. Hunters are welcome to hunt from Sept. 1 - Dec. 31, each hunt with us can be booked for 3 days and we also provide each hunter their own personal guide. In addition, your party will be the only group hunting on the preserve during your stay.
Our guides are all seasoned outdoorsmen. A guide is provided on all hunts. Our crew make the difference in improving your success rate in the field.
Whitetail deer communicate not only with scent but they also communicate with various vocalizations. We as hunters have heard many of these sounds ourselves. But the key to helping you use these sounds as tools is to know what sound, how much and when to use these sounds to help you in your quest for that trophy Whitetail.
Our guides have mastered imitating deer calls. Read the descriptions below that have helped us lure in the right buck at the right time.
Non Aggressive Deer Calls:
Contact Calls : This sound is a doe's way of locating other deer of her family group . This call can be used all year long.
Doe Grunt : Grunts are a doe's way of saying come here , also to call her fawns at feeding time . It is critical to keep the call soft as a loud grunt is too aggressive of a call.
Tending Grunt : As the buck chases the doe as the rut approaches he is frustrated, and makes a series of soft grunts while trailing her. It's the bucks way of asking her to stop so he can be breed with her.
Sparring : This is a non aggressive and social behaviour that all bucks do after shedding their velvet . This is when the bucks learn who can whip the other . This process does not prevent serious fights later on during the rut.
Aggressive Deer Calls
Sniff : Deer make this sound to intimidate other deer and prevent fights. This call is often made by a rut- crazed buck when confronted with a rival. This sound can send smaller buck running from the area.
Aggressive Rattling : This is a short aggressive rattling sequence to possibly lure in less aggressive, but curious buck, as well as the local dominant whitetail buck of the area. To make this sound like a real fight sniffs, wheezes and grunts have also been thrown in for added effect.
