Details of Ranch Whitetail Hunts
In 2007 we started our own breeding program for our Whitetails, and four years later our hunters are reaping the benefits! Managing our Bucks and Does for quality has been our backbone.
During last few years while shed hunting, scouting, and hunting on the Silvertine property, I was amazed at the quality of the bucks I have seen. Our deer herd continues to amaze me and the bucks are showing tremendous antler growth. In 2011 our first year of the "Ranch Hunt" package the average buck killed by our Whitetail Hunters exceeded the 180" mark, and in 2014 our average was 204"! Heaven only knows what it will be next year.
This a REAL HUNT, and VERY Fair Chase! These deer live and die on this ranch, and are SUPER SPOOKY! Even though these deer are "Fenced In", all of our hunters say these deer are wild suckers and exactly like hunting any other whitetail deer anywhere else, just that we can control the hunting pressure and harvest to allow the deer to grow to maturity, supplement them with feed and manage the genetic base for trophy quality.
The 2012 Average was 185"
The 2013 Average was 191"
The 2014 Average was 204", and all years were 100% success.
Now there is a few things you need to know about this package hunt
1) It is Limited to Whitetail Bucks on the ranch, bucks that breed and are raised on the hunt property, and what Mother nature controls and grows. There will be many bucks in both the typical and non-typical class's, and the photos on the sides of this page and below are some of the "Ranch" harvested bucks from the 2011 to 2014 season, so you can see what to expect as far as quality and antler shapes, it truly varies.
Now that said, some guys are going to want specific qualities in a Buck and these bucks need to be "Special Order" , by that I mean, Bucks that hunters want to harvest that have drop tines, webbing, large 180+ typical's, extra wide, etc., etc., Bucks like this need to be brought in from outside breeders, and are subject to a different pricing schedule.
2) The $2,950 base hunt fee applies to these hunts, and we are still offering 100% GUARANTEED OPPORTUNITY! The Base Hunt Fee will be charged if a trophy is not taken during the scheduled hunt at no fault of Silvertine Wildlife Co. Only if we are unsuccessful in providing a reasonable opportunity for you to harvest a trophy in this size range, then no fee will be charged and your hunt will be rescheduled for a later date or your money refunded in full.
