No. We host only 1 group at a time. We generally work with a primary point of contact for each group.
We will assist new hunters, if requested. However, hunters are responsible for making a decision to shoot and for taking appropriate care of their harvested game.
You bring food, drinks, hunting license, guns, hunting gear, medications, and personal toiletries.
You also bring coolers and ice for game.
You may bring a pop-up blind. It should be put in place soon after arrival to give game a chance to get used to it.
We share our kitchen, grill, smoker, and walk-in cooler.
We provide coffee in the morning.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are furnished with blankets, pillows, linens, towels, soaps, and toilet paper.
We have a shooting range that may be used to check your rifle, but each hunter should sight-in the guns they plan to use, before arrival at the ranch.
GBL supports bringing youth to the outdoors, but is not designed to support active outdoor sports like running and playing ball. Even hide and seek can be problematic.
In our experience, generally limiting hunting groups to only one youth helps promote a safe and productive hunt.
We do not host bow hunters, but will consider limited use by our gun hunters.
You are responsible for any animal you shoot, recovered or not.
Only listed "Add-on" animals may be hunted.
No hunting from around the house and adjacent grounds.
Unethical or unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated.
Guests are asked to keep a low profile in terms of their voice and activities.
Do not leave food or trash in blinds.
No smoking inside any building or hunting area.
No removal of items from the ranch without permission.
Guns should be loaded only when hunting.
Always pay close attention while loading and unloading.
Follow basic gun handling safety procedures at all times.
Consumption of alcoholic beverages is allowed, in moderation, when not hunting.
Fires are allowed only in designated fire pits and not during county burn bans.
Non-hunting guests must stay within the house grounds or in a blind.
Guests 17 and younger may not stay alone in the ranch house.
Hunting package prices are a minimum, per hunter charge, whether or not all included items and services (nights of lodging, days of hunting, and included game) are used.
All game is "Hunter's Choice." There are no "cull" designations. Only goats have a length of horn associated with their fees. This is to differentiate between meat and trophy game.
Animals are considered taken if wounded. The Ranch staff will work with a hunter to track and will have final say on all tracking activity.
Guests may be asked to leave early if they cannot respect the Ranch Rules.
We generally eat family-style with our guests and will assist with meal preparation as needed.
No ATV's or animals may be brought in. There is a ranch cat that may be in and around the house area.
Bow hunting is generally not permitted. You are encouraged to discuss your bow hunting requests with the Ranch staff prior to arrival.
