Frudden says the deer were abundant on the property, and the six hunters in his party took six trophy bucks. In a season when antler growth was down due to a year-long drought, these six animals ranged in size from 101 to 115 B & C (the B&C minimum is 110). He says everything about the camp, outfitting and trophy care was excellent. Fulk tells us the largest buck he took from that ranch this year gross scored 132 despite a broken tine.
Frudden recommends the hunt, saying he had no problems and rates all of Fulk's services as excellent. He recommends bringing good binoculars, a top-quality spotting scope and a rifle capable of reaching out to 500 yards, which is the distance at which he killed his buck in its bed.
He gives the total cost of his hunt as $5,750. That total covered the $4,250 hunt fee (which includes license and gun permit), a $1,000 trophy fee and $500 in tips. Fulk notes that his trophy fees are based on the size of the animal taken: $1,000 for animals gross-scoring over 100, $1,250 for over 110, $1,750 for over 120 and $2,000 for bucks scoring 130+.
