3-Day Semi-Guided Whitetail Gun Hunt
HUNTING OHIO ON OUR PROPERTIES
Semi-Guided Gun Hunt
Our properties are in south-central Ohio. We hunt in Highland, Adams, and Scioto counties right in the middle of big buck country. We will do our best to make your hunt here with us a success; we have spent countless hours on these properties getting ready for your arrival to make sure you have every possible chance at a trophy-class deer. We are here for you, to let you in on what we already know. We will make suggestions on where to hunt when to hunt and every other aspect of the hunt, but it is ultimately up to you to follow through on our suggestions. We will not beg you to get up earlier, stay later, or try harder but we will give you every opportunity possible to harvest an animal. They are here, they are 100% wild, and If you get one you will have earned it. We will take you to and from the stand, we will be there to help track, drag and process your kill. We will help you as much or as little as u desire, that is up to you. This is your hunt.
All of our hunts include lodging and a nightly meal.
Lodging is on-site in our bunkhouse. It is not a 5-star resort but it is clean, warm, and dry. Beds are bunk-style beds. You will need to bring your own linens or sleeping bags, whichever you prefer, along with your own pillow, towels, and washcloths.
Meals: (On Hunt Days Only)
Breakfast, Lunch, and snacks will be up to you. There is a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, hotplate, pots, and pans in the bunkhouse for you to use. If you need an oven the one in the lodge will be made available to you.
Supper will be a hearty cooked meal, in the Lodge most likely something grilled and fixin’s.
* It is very important that if you have any special needs or allergies regarding your diet that you let us know ahead of time.*
License and Tag:
Hunting license and tag are both available over the counter or online. The current price for these items is $180.96 for your license and $76.96 for an either-sex whitetail non-resident hunter. We are hunting only trophy whitetail bucks here on our properties unless arrangements have been made ahead of time to take a doe. However, it’s always coyote season here on the TRA property, feel free to shoot them on sight.
Special Group Discount
We have found that camp runs a lot smoother if everyone knows each other. Groups of five or more people will receive a $100 discount per person on 5-day hunts. Groups of ten people will receive a $300 discount per person on 5-day hunts. This constitutes buying out the camp.
Base price is per person for a 3-Day Hunt during Fri-Sun. Make it a Mon-Wed hunt for an additional fee.

Rules & Guidelines
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you determine stand assignments? - Stands are picked from the most recent activity in the areas and best wind directions by the guides, the best stand sites are then put into a hat, one for each hunter in camp, then the hunters will draw their stand assignments from the hat. No Favoritism Here!
How long do the hunters stay on that stand site? As long as the wind allows a hunter can keep their stand site as long as they wish. If they give their stand site up, it immediately becomes available to another Hunter. It is recommended to stay at least 2 days on your stand site before moving if the wind direction allows.
Can we bring our own stands? Yes, you may bring your stand but you will have to place it in the area that we want you to hunt in. We understand that some stands are more comfortable than others so this is why that’s allowed. If you move from your assigned area your hunt will be over, no excuses.
What Type of Stands do you have? We use mostly Ladder stands and Pop Up Blinds, we do have some box blinds also.
How far is the walk to the stands? It differs depending on the farm and stand site you are hunting, in some cases, we are able to take you all the way to the stand, at other times if the weather is bad you may have to walk farther than normal. We will get you as close as possible in all cases.
How do I know a deer is big enough to make your min of 130? You will Know. If you have to wonder then it’s probably not big enough. We will show you lots of trail cam pics of what’s big enough and what’s not before you start hunting.
How Far is your shot opportunities? In most cases, our feeders and bait piles will be between 20 and 40 yards for bow, but there will be deer seen farther than that. We do not recommend a bow or crossbow shot Farther than 50 yards.
What is your success Rate? The success rate has absolutely nothing to do with an outfitter, as an outfitter all we can do is get you in range of a shooter buck, the rest is up to you. We measure our success on Opportunity. We typically run 75 to 80% opportunity for a shot on a shooter buck within Range. These are 100% wild deer and we cannot guarantee success.
How Much Land Do you have? We currently have access to over 2000 private acres in Ohio.
What should I bring? All your personal items, hunting gear, as well as bed linens for a twin-size bed or sleeping bag and towels.
Can I get A Refund on my deposit? Typically deposits are Not Refundable or Transferrable although they may be honored at another time at the discretion of management depending on the circumstances. This is 100% at managements discretion.
