The luxury lodging will have you wishing you could make this your new home! The diverse and luxury lodging options will thrill your party.

This resort allows you to easily walk from your cabin to the main lodge or to the pool area. The main lodge has a large hangout area with a tv and a game area with billiards, TVs, and shuffleboard.
The goal of hunting on this property is to preserve the land and managing the herds well. This resort works hard in their management.

The furniture is welcoming and provides the perfect setting to watch a football game or share hunting stories. The stonework and dark woods create a welcoming feeling.
Meals are served in a large dining building a short walk from the main lodge. This warm room is where you will eat your meals. For breakfast and lunch, you can choose your meal from a full menu. Dinner is a fixed menu Wednesday – Saturday, and a full menu Sunday – Tuesday. The Wednesday – Saturday meals each have a fun theme.
You will have a continental breakfast before you go out for your morning hunt and will return for the full breakfast.
There is a strong emphasis on using locally sourced ingredients that the culinary staff takes great care in selecting. These ingredients would be used in meals such as wood-fired pizza, BBQ, steaks, or Fajitas. The team takes great pride in their work, so your food will always be delicious and presented well. They also have a large selection of wines to accompany your meals.
The Exotics hunts are fully guided. These hunts consist of spot and stalk hunting and some blind hunting. The terrain on this property has facilitated great growth for the exotics and makes for an exciting hunt.
If you are after an Axis, the best time to hunt one has traditionally been May – July, but you can hunt all exotics year-round.
This lodge has been awarded for its premier whitetail on the property. As with all of their animals, they take great care in managing the populations and increasing a high-nutrition environment for them. The Whitetail hunts are primarily conducted from custom blinds.
For both Whitetail and Exotics, the guides are constantly monitoring herds to be sure their guests have the best and most successful hunt possible.
The wingshooting consists of Quail, Chukar, and Pheasant hunts. A mix of pre-season release and the large population of native birds make these hunts thrilling, to say the least. From September to March, you can choose to hunt any of these three or do a combo hunt. The well-trained dogs and guides will add fun to your hunt as you watch them work and help you succeed.
Turkey hunting is also an option here. Hunt from the incredible population of Rio Grande Turkeys that live on this property. Your guide will help you execute the hunt and assist you in achieving one of the most rewarding hunts: getting a gobbler during the spring season.
