  1. Hello Sir,
    I am a single father of two boys 17,15 do u offer any deer management hunts. Not looking to kill a 200 BC but rather expand our hunting experience outside of PA.

  2. I am interested in 2023 Rifle white tail hunts. Please let me know the dates available as well as rates. This would be for 2 or 3 hunters.

    Thank you,

  3. Looking for the week of November 17th – 19th for 6 people . Is there a minimum requirement for a buck ? If so what are your requirements to shoot a buck . Thx !

  4. Hello,
    Interested in booking a 5 day fall bow hunt in 2023.
    What are the bag limits doe/buck for this package price?

  5. I’m a 66 yr. old hunter with my 40 yr. old son. We are and have been exclusive hunting buddies since he could follow me as a little boy. We are looking for a 2023 trophy whitetail deer hunt during the rut. What is an all-inclusive price for your 6-day hunts? Hunt, lodging/food costs etc…

    Thank you,
    Warren and Randall Harris
    Montana/Northern Utah.

  6. I am interested in rifle hunt for my 15 year old son and myself. I prefer peak rut dates. What is available and what will be the rate?

  7. If selected my son and I would cherish every moment. Thank you for offering a free hunt to our hunting brothers and sisters.

  8. I’m 63. Been hunting for over 45 years.I have never been on a trophy hunt anywhere in my life.I am so much looking to doing a hunt with Zach and his outfit. Looks to be an awesome place to go.
    Not concerned about available dates. Looks like any date would be a fantastic time. I also like the hunting tips I get.
