Our Animals

Whitetail Deer

The Whitetail deer is the smallest member of the North American deer family. During the summer, they typically inhabit fields and meadows using tall grasses and trees for shade. During the winter, they generally keep to forests, preferring evergreen trees to provide shelter from the harsh Wisconsin elements.

Sika Deer

The Sika (Cervus Nippon) are native to Eastern Asia. They are unique in that they generally have spots like the Whitetail deer fawn. Sika deer can present a greater challenge to hunters due to their smaller size and faster speed. Not a widely found species, we are one of a few locations in Wisconsin to offer exotic Sika deer hunting experience.

Sika deer not only offer an exotic and unique look to your trophy collection, but the vension meat from a Sika is outstanding, due to greater marbling over Whitetails.

Elk

Looking for a trophy hunt, then the Elk is the animal for you. We offer mature bulls with trophy size antlers at our Northern Buck location. Average Elk or Wapiti tower above other Whitetail deer with an average height of 5 feet at the shoulders.

Given the large size of these animals, the northern preserve offers not only ample room for these animals to flourish, but also provides a unique experience for the avid hunter given the vast untouched natural beauty and scenic beauty of the preserve.

White & Piebald Whitetail Deer

These deer are a very unique genetic variation of the common Whitetail Deer. Commonly regarded as albino, they are actually leucistic, meaning they lack pigmentation in the hair but have the normal brown-colored eyes. Piebalds are unique in that they have various coloration patterns of both a white and a whitetail deer.

Truly a sight to see, they are a treasured prize on the ranch. Many people stop to just enjoy seeing these animals.

Bison

Bison, symbolic animals of the Great Plains, are often mistakenly called buffaloes. These animals are the heaviest land animals in North America standing at 5 to 6.5 feet tall at the shoulder. Despite their massive size, bison are quick on their feet and can run at speeds up to 40 miles an hour.

Bison meat is a leaner meat and good to eat. We offer the opportunity to purchase a Bison. Once purchased, a Bison can be harvested at the discretion of the buyer.
