Georgia Father/Son Hunt -- October 26 - October 29, 2012

Opportunity for 4 two man teams made up of Father and Son, We have an 1000 acre tract with lodges. Our tree stands are all hung with care (API or Summit stands) and safety straps.  Hunters will need a safety harness if they want to hunt from a lock-on stand.  They will also need orange vests.

Georgia is typically know for decent sized bucks and high deer volume.  So that everyone is clear, I would feel safe is saying that every hunter will have an opportunity to kill a deer.  It may be a doe or it may be a Boone and Crockett buck.  We will be hunting private farms.  This is not an outfitter type of hunt.  We can promise a good time and plenty of deer, but no guarantees on a monster buck.

Trip highlights will include;

  • Trip to the local gun club
  • Elbert County/Hart County football game where you will be the guest of honor/honorary Elbert County captains
  • Dinner at the local Elks Lodge
  • 3 days of hunting
  • over 1000 acres of hunting
