  • Drop tines will be billed at an extra $200 per inch. This fee will only be added to the total length of the drop tine points. For instance, if a deer is a 160 class with 10″ of drop tines, the total cost would be $9,500. This price would cover the $7,500 cost of a 160 inch buck and the extra $200 per inch fee assessed over the total 10″ of drop tines. 

Wounding Policy

If a deer is shot at and wounded (i.e. blood, hair, meat or bone is found), it is the responsibility of the hunter to pay the appropriate kill fees. All hunts are video taped and the gross score of the animal will be estimated from video by Rancho Encantado representatives. Every effort will be made to locate wounded game. If the buck is found at a later date, the antlers will be gross scored and the kill fee will be adjusted to the actual score. The antlers will then be sent to the hunter.

Opportunity Fee

If a deer is shot at and determined by Rancho Encantado representatives as having been missed, you will be charged an opportunity fee of $500 if the deer is Silver or less (< 145 gross) or $1,000 if the buck is Gold or Platinum level (145+ gross). If a buck is taken later in the hunt, this opportunity fee will be applied to the kill fees of the buck taken.

Weapons Policy

All hunters will be required to shoot either their rifles or bows under the supervision of Rancho Encantado representatives before being allowed to hunt. We have excellent rifle and bow ranges on the ranch. If your rifle or bow is not functioning properly, you will not be allowed to hunt with them. Practice with your weapon before arriving to insure proper function and accuracy.
