The Property

Abundant Nature

Included in your reservation is access to approximately 200 acres of private land right outside your door, including fields, woods, and creeks. You have private access to Tomahawk Creek, including the “high bank hole" - a beautiful secluded spot about 1/4 mile from the house, where you are welcome to fish, camp, and explore the creek banks. 

ATVs, etc. are welcome! Access to the creek is occasionally limited to 4-wheel-drive (or on foot) in wet weather.

Farm Life

There is also a cattle pond about 300 yards from the house, where you are welcome to fish. Along with whitetail deer, turkeys, and other wildlife, cattle will be peacefully sharing the property with you at times. Don't bother them, and they won't bother you!

This property is about a 15-20 minute drive from the town of Mountain View, and the route includes 2 miles of dirt road. Cellular service varies but can generally be accessed about a half mile up the road, if not at the house. We provide free WiFi, along with a telephone for local calls.

Pets Welcome

Well-behaved pets are welcome inside and out, with prior approval. The fenced yard includes approximately 1/3 acre fenced for dogs, with a doghouse and some pet supplies provided.

We can also accommodate hunting dogs with more secure housing in enclosed sheds and covered chain-link runs. Please discuss your pet needs with us prior to booking.

Guided Hunts

We cater to hunting groups with special packages during deer and turkey season. Guided hunting is available for a daily per-person fee that includes lodging in the farmhouse and exclusive access for your group to around 500 acres of prime hunting ground.

No high fences. No tame animals. No extra charge for trophy kills. Just authentic, fair-chase hunting of wild game in its natural Ozark Mountain habitat. Farm land with a mixture of woods and small clearings, pastures, creeks, and ponds. Land is reserved for one group at a time, and gates are locked.

Deer & Turkeys

Wild, free-ranging whitetail deer are plentiful on our property. We feed corn beginning in August and plant attractants such as winter wheat in select areas to help draw in and sustain the population. And you won’t find a better turkey hunting spot in Arkansas or better, more experienced callers and guides. Our guides will help you choose the best spots to hunt, and will assist you as much or little as you like!

Private Access

Tree stands and ground-level blinds are provided, along with the assistance of experienced local hunters. This service includes a tour of the best hunting spots to get you set up, help with collecting and processing kills, and other advice and assistance. We will help whenever you need us and stay out of your way when you don’t. (Minimum 3 hunters)
