Well I'll be the first to tell you that it isnt "real" hunting. But Me, my uncles, cousins and a friend went to Big Boar Lodge in upstate, Moravia NY this weekend.

Although it isnt REAL hunting, this trip is something all of us will be doing every year from this day forward.

This was by far one of the funnest weekends of my life.

Big boar is not a typical preserve. You dont have a guide breathing down your neck and nobody pressures you into anything. We were set up in treestands in groups of two. Then our guide Mike walks the property and pushes all the game around, which is essential, because most of the animals are noctournal.

We saw, Rams, goats, boar, elk, red stag, fallow deer, white fallow deer and bison.

We had great success, 5 out of six hunters got what we were looking for, one in our group was unable to get a shot at the particular ram he was after.

I highly recomend Big Boar Lodge to anyone looking for a great weekend to spend with friends and family.

ps, I am not being paid too write such good things here, it was genuinly an excelent experience with an exelent outfit.

Me with a 240 pound female. Sorry for the arrow. It was stuck in the opposing shoulder. SpitFire 100grn was bend at a 45 degree angle.


All the boys.

Their website states
Our expert hunting guides will escort you around our 250 acre preserve.
It sounds like they really just "escort" the animals around ?!?

It certainly sounds like a good hunt for a guy just wanting to kill something/anything.

Sorry I wasnt more specific. For the first 3 hours we all sat in stands. After that we were all allowed to freely still hunt and stalk on the property. Every one of the animals pictured was killed via still hunting and stalking, all with the eception of the white ram. The white ram was shot by my 14 year old cousing who is a girl as you could see.

At Big Boar you are free to hunt any stlye you prefer.

To anyone who dosnt agree with preserve hunting.....sorry. Maybe next time my 14 year old cousin wants to hunt a white ram, she can fly out to Iran for the weekend. And if my cousin wants a Jacobs Four Horn ram,...... we'll just shoot over to Soudi Arabia for a 3 day weekend.

Thanks everyone.

Thanks for the PM info. Again, it looks like a FUN way to spend a weekend with friends and family. It may not be an extreme (big big money) safari. It is what it is and it sure looks like you folks had a great time together. :smile:
