The MCLEAN BOWMAN RANCH has been under an intense management program for over 35 years. We have also been under a LEVEL 3 MLD PERMIT for the last 15 years. This means we
tag all deer taken on the ranch with MLD PERMITS. You do not need to use your tags from your hunting licence, just have a valid hunting license when you show up at the ranch. We specialize in-group hunting of up to (8) hunters at one time.
All hunts include food, lodging and guiding. There will be 2 hunters per guide on rifle hunts, unless other arrangements are made before the hunt to be one on one. There is an extra charge of $100.00 a day for this option. A rifle and bow hunter will have one guide, but two
bow hunters will have to take the one on one option and split up with two guides with the extra $100.00 a day for the extra guide. Another unique feature we offer on a limited basis is by paying the extra fee for one on one guiding ($100.00 a day) a hunter may bring with them on their hunt one of their children (between 8 and 15 years of age) at no additional charge to their package. The youth is encouraged to hunt the low-end buck but not the trophy buck.
We also have a limited number of turkey hunts available in the spring
MCLEAN BOWMAN RANCH adheres to the following reasonable rules and policies. If the hunter passes on a buck in his or her category and does not find another buck, then the passed up buck becomes the package hunt buck. In regard to the judging of score, hunters may request opinions from the guides, but in general a hunter is expected to pay for what he shot. A wounded buck (blood , bone, or meat ) is considered to be a dead buck and will be charged accordingly as though it was harvested. The guides will determine the score. All decisions related to the hunt are made by the guide are final.
We take the aging of bucks very seriously, meaning that a buck has to be first judged by the guide to be eligible.
We provide a full-service hunt. Lodge, meals, guides, bedding, linens, and towels. Guns or binoculars are not provided; however, guns can be arranged for with proper notice. Capering and quartering is included. If you wish to do the cleaning yourself a cold storage facility and freezer are provided. We do not ship capes, meat or horns.
