Who will do my taxidermy work?
There are several good taxidermists in nearby towns, any of whom would be happy to complete work you request. If you choose to ship your trophy home or send it to a taxidermist, a fee will be charged for preparing, packing and shipping it.
Would my Spouse or non-hunting companion enjoy joining me on my hunt?
Absolutely. The accommodations at Lake Creek Ranch are very comfortable, even for the most genteel. Private bedrooms and baths make a stay at Lake Creek as secluded as you wish. Day trips can be arranged to visit local antique shops, historic sites or Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States.
What gun should I use?
Any caliber from a 243 Winchester through a 300 Winchester Mag. will work. Most recommended would be 270 or 30-06. If you do not wish to bring or do not have your own gun, firearms can be arranged at the ranch. 20 Ga. shot guns for bird hunts are recommended, but any gauge is acceptable.
