Top 10 Reasons to Hunt at High Adventure Ranch

  1. Founded in 1983, we pioneered ranch hunting for big game in Missouri. We are the oldest and perhaps most active big game hunting ranch in the state.

  2. We have guides with nearly 70 years of combined experience and two of our guides have been with us since our founding. They know their jobs and will work diligently to help you bag your trophy. Our ranch manager supervises all hunts and the number of hunters afield on any given day.

  3. We encourage and guide handicapped or disabled hunters and enjoy seeing them score the animal of their choice. It’s a thrill that everyone should experience.

  4. Our ranch is family friendly. Not only will we guide women and children on hunts, but we’ll take the time to explain the animal they are hunting. We consider it our duty to discuss animal habitat, the effect of a clean environment on wildlife in the future, and gun safety. When necessary, we also provide rifle practice. Our ranch features stocked lakes for fishing (catch & release) for both children and adults as well. (No special license required, just remember to bring your gear.)

  5. You’ll enjoy home-style meals served up in our dining room and find order and cleanliness in our lodge or newly constructed, air-conditioned private cabins. These cabins and the lodge accommodations are fully furnished, including a complete kitchen with microwave, coffeemaker, and all utensils. Fresh bed linens and towels are also provided. More on our Accommodations.

  6. To assure only top-quality animals are hunted, we also conduct annual “Cull Hunts” to rid our herds of any animals that are underdeveloped, have malformed horns or antlers, or any species that are overpopulated. These hunts are significantly reduced in price and provide an enjoyable way to fill your freezer with excellent table fare at a reasonable price. See our current Specials.

  7. We use dependable and comfortable 4x4 vehicles for hunting on our more than 68 miles of roads within the ranch confines.

  8. We have the largest herds of various game from which you can select. This is the primary reason why we enjoy 100% success on our big bull Elk hunts (many of which are 7 x 7 to 8 x 8 and rate in the high 400s of the B&C category). Our deer herds, Whitetail and Red Stag, are all in the upper 99 percentile of success. This is yet another reason why we can maintain our policy of No Game, No Pay.

  9. We have our own meat processing facility including a large newly constructed walk-in cooler/freezer. We quarter or custom cut, de-bone, vacuum seal and label the meat and keep it in our walk-in cooler until your departure.

  10. Explore Missouri. Due to our unique location, we can assist you with recommendations to local wineries or the daily live country western performances at the nationally renowned Branson, Missouri. Silver Dollar City and the original Bass Pro Shop (now a city block square) are all within a few hours of the ranch. See Area Attractions.
