  • If hunting from a ladder stand, wear a safety belt. 
  • If you are bow hunting, you must wear a safety harness.  If you do not have one, let us know.
  • We prefer you shoot your rifle at our shooting range once you arrive to make sure your gun is zeroed in, even if you think it is.
  • Remain in the stand until picked up even if you have shot a deer.
  • One buck per hunter.  So make your shot count. If you draw blood, that is the same as a kill.
  • Eight (8) point or better and outside of the ears.  Anything under this will result in a $500.00 fine.  Strictly enforced.
  • Please remove muddy boots before entering lodge.  Leave on the porch when possible.  Upon arrival back to the lodge, we will wash boots off with sprayer.

  • Hunter orange is required.  If you do not have a hat, one can be purchased.
  • You do not make the decision of whether a buck is a cull buck.  That is the responsibility of the Leavellwood staff.
