Deer & Elk Hunting Accommodations
We use several high fenced deer preserves near Ludington for
our elk hunts. We transport one of our elks to a
deer preserve that isn't having a deer hunt during the time of your hunt.
By transporting an elk to another location, this causes them to be more wary which
adds to the thrill of the hunt. In addition it gives our hunters the
opportunity of also killing a trophy buck or a doe for its meat.
Walker Creek Ranch is one high fenced deer preserve we use
quite often. Listed below is some information about that ranch.

Accommodations are provided in our private hunter's cabin. We
will book your hunting party to stay in the cabin during your hunt. Along with delicious satisfying meals, all the comforts of home are available. A crackling fire will be provided as needed in the fireplace to warm your feet after a day spent hunting that prize
As you look out the patio door, you may see a real wall hanger come out of the underbrush to feed right in front of you! Sleeping accommodations in our cozy cabin also include a half loft. Enjoy the comfortable, private quarters located on hundreds of acres of
high fenced prime hunting habitat.
Call us today to book your elk hunt!

Walker Creek Ranch
|Elk are more than twice
as heavy as mule deer and have a more reddish hue to their hair coloring, as
well as large, buff colored rump patches and smaller tails. Moose are larger and
darker than elk. Elk gather in herds, while moose are solitary. Elk cows
average 225 kilograms (500 lb), stand 1.3 meters (4.3 ft) at the shoulder, and
are 2 meters (6.6 ft) from nose to tail. Elk Bulls are some 40% larger than elk cows at
maturity, weighing an average of 320 kilograms (710 lb), standing 1.5 meters
(4.9 ft) at the shoulder and averaging 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) in length. The
largest of the subspecies is the Roosevelt elk, found west of the Cascade Range
in the U.S. states of California, Oregon and Washington, and in the Canadian
province of British Columbia. Roosevelt elk have been reintroduced into Alaska,
where the largest males are estimated to weigh up to 600 kilograms (1,300 lb).
