Do you provide lodging?

No, unfortunately, we do not. However, there is a Hampton Inn, and a few lower-priced hotels in and around Martinsville, should you require lodging.

Do you offer outfitter services?
  • No, we do not. We do have experienced guides who know our properties inside and out, and are able to provide a full-service, guided hunt, to include field dressing, and transport to our animal processor. We are not, however, able to provide full-service outfitter services, such as meals, or lodging at this time.
Do I have to have previous experience?

Certainly, having some experience is helpful, but it is not necessary. We can accommodate all levels of hunter experience.

What equipment do I need to provide?
  • Each participant is responsible for his/her own transportation to the Martinsville, VA area, lodging, meals, clothing, and hunting license fees. You show up dressed to hunt, with a valid hunting license, and we will get you into the best locations on the property for a successful hunt.
  • We are able to provide rifles, muzzle loaders, crossbows, ammunition/bolts, ground blinds, tree stands, trail cameras, processing & field dressing tools, binoculars, range finders, portable heaters, and most other common hunting equipment.
  • We are also able to provide one adult and one child sized ATV with advanced notice. 
Can I bring my family?

Yes! Please do. We encourage this to be a complete family event. We can host multiple hunters at a time on some properties. Integrating the family into these events is one of our top priorities. 

How long are your events?

We typically book hunts for 3.5 days, depending on the schedule/availability of the hunter. The first half day is reserved for zero confirmation, scouting, and getting oriented with the property, with the first hunt taking place on the morning of Day 2.

The duration of other activities varies greatly from person to person. 

 

How do I know if there is an event scheduled?

We post all upcoming events on our Facebook page, Instagram, and our website.

If you are interested in an individual or small group event, contact us via social media, email, or telephone, and one of our event coordinators will contact you to work out the details of your event. 

Do you offer processing or taxidermy for harvested animals?

No we do not. However, we have field dressing and processing equipment, as well as local processors and taxidermists within a short distance. Processing & Taxidermy costs are the responsibility of each hunter.
