So my big dream is to own a hunting ranch. I want a few hundred acres of high fenced land, with hills/ mountains and some meadows or fields along with a stream and lakes. (Sounds Nice Right?)
I want to provide opportunities to hunt upland birds, ducks, turkeys and big game whether it be whitetail deer, mule deer, elk or maybe even an exotic species.
I have a few questions I hope the people of OBN and who ever else is reading can answer.
1. How much does buying Deer cost and where should I buy them from. ( I want to buy and manage my own herd because I want to be open all year long without the need for seasons.)
2. How many deer should I start with to build up my herd.
3. What is the smallest amount of property I could get started with.
4. What is the average price people will pay to come hunt something like this.
Now I know I can find all of this online, but a lot of the info I look up is old and out of date. I am hoping people can answer these questions, so I can at least start a plan, it never hurts to plan and set goals. I am sure I will have many more questions in the future but this can get me started. And maybe someone else has the same dream and same questions and can find their answers here.
