Silver Hunts


Silver Hunts are the next step up from Bronze—bigger bucks and one extra day of Hunting.  The following photos depict representative Silver class bucks:

Length of the Hunt: 
3 ½ days.  The Silver Hunter hunts the afternoon of his arrival plus three full days thereafter.
Number of Silver Hunts Sold:
The Faith Ranch has sold 7 Silver hunts for the past few deer seasons.  We expect that number to increase as our intensively-managed, high-fenced operation matures.
A Guide’s Choice Buck Possibility:
When a Silver Hunter’s guide sees a mature buck whose antlers are less than Bronze class in quality, the guide—at his option—will ask the Silver Hunter to shoot the Guide’s Choice buck.  Faith Ranch does not charge the Hunter for a Guide’s Choice Buck.

Additional Bronze Bucks:
For an additional fee, a Silver Hunter may kill up to two additional Bronze class bucks, subject to availability.
Other Game:
A Silver Hunter may also kill feral hogs (but only one boar and then only if Hunter intends to mount the boar), coyotes, one bobcat, and two javelina.
Price of Silver Hunt:
Tipping policy:
Tipping of guides is expected.  A good rule of thumb is to tip 10% of the price of the hunt ($550 for a Silver Hunt) plus 10% of the price of additional Bronze bucks taken.  Tips are an important reason Faith Ranch can attract top quality guides. Hunters are also encouraged to tip the cooking and cleaning staff.
Accommodations at the Faith Ranch are the finest to be found. The Package hunt facility consists of a newly remodeled kitchen and dining area where we will provide and prepare all meals for our hunters, as well as a hunter’s bunkhouse.

The bunkhouse is a 3-room building. Each room is a two bed, one bathroom design. Therefore, package hunters will be required to share a room with one other hunter. All beverages, including alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine and mixed drinks will also be provided (no alcoholic beverages are permitted while hunting). To make your stay more pleasurable we should be advised of any special requirements in advance.

Additional Guest Policy:
Space at the Faith ranch hunting lodge is limited. However, if space is available hunters are welcome to have non-hunting guests. During thesilver hunt a non-hunting guest fee of $500.00 per person will be charged. Available space for non-hunting guests must be approved when booking your hunt.
Wounded Deer Policy: 
A wounded deer, determined by any physical evidence that deer was shot (blood or hair, e.g.), counts as the Hunter’s buck.
Faith Ranch does not guarantee that a Silver Hunter will be successful in killing a Silver buck.
Working one’s way up to a Silver Hunt:
Because we sell very few Silver Hunts, a new hunter to the Faith Ranch guided hunting program will not start out at the Silver Hunt level.  Most hunters will have to start out at the Bronze Hunt Level.  There is one significant exception, however: the corporate group hunt.  Faith Ranch will make every effort to provide one Silver Hunt and one Gold Hunt to a businessman who purchases an entire group of Bronze Hunts (generally 7 Bronze Hunts).
