Every great hunting preserve starts with quality management. Management deer are by nature either bucks that have passed their prime or don’t have the genetic potential to become a Timberghost trophy, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are small!
Timberghost considers anything mature and scoring up to 150 a management deer, and in some cases there are management bucks that score even more. Hunters can upgrade to harvest a larger management for an additional cost. Upgrades generally run $500-$2,000 and are determined in the field by the guide based on age and score. While we do not allow management hunters to harvest trophy animals we do take what we consider management deer up into the high 150’s each season. These hunts require a $1,000 deposit to hold dates.
