Services & Resourses
The creation of Record Horn was born from a decade of searching for the ultimate hunting environment, and has been one of my greatest passions. I am certain we have created an environment that will emphasize the ethical principles of hunting, one built on the policy of “Fair Chase”, and a preserve that will create a memory of a lifetime. Your interests are my number one priority, and I want you to return again, and better yet, to tell your friends of about the great hunting experience you had with Record Horn Ranch!
My extensive years of hands-on background in my hunting business has shown me exactly what the client is looking for in a preserve hunt. They want three simple criteria:
Record Horn is a privately managed hunt preserve so no hunting license, set seasons, or bag limits are in effect. All hunts are 1x1, 2x1, or 3x1 guide services with very experienced and talented guides. They have an exceptional understanding of the game and the preserve habitat. Hunters can choose to hunt with rifle, bow, crossbow, or muzzleloader. Hunting is done in large blinds comfortable enough for up to 6 people, spot and stalk hunting, and river hunting with the use of a Jon Boat, we do a lot of calling (bugling, cow calls, and deer rattling). We can challenge the most avid hunter!
Rifle hunters entering Canada are required to declare their firearms when entering/leaving Canada. CLICK HERE to get the proper forms only from the Canadian Firearms Centers web-site to bring your firearms into Canada. There is a $30.00 Canadian fee. Bows and crossbows are exempt.
Meat and Trophy Care:
Record Horn’s experienced staff will handle all your meat and trophy requirements.
All meat is recovered from the preserve using quads. The meat is taken back to the lodge, cleaned, and hung in the meat house, ready to be prepared by a meat processor. With prior arrangements, hunters have the option of taking meat home that is pre-possessed at an additional cost.
Importing Meat to U.S.A.
For those hunters that wish to return home with their bounty of meat from their Big Game animals at the conclusion of the hunt, we provide all the necessary export permits and paperwork. This is all included in the hunt price. All Elk, Deer, and Bison meat are allowed to be brought into the USA with proper paperwork from us.

We work with several renowned taxidermist. We can service our customers by serving their taxidermy needs. Hunters have the option of leaving their trophies with us to ship or mount, or take back their packaged capes to their taxidermist at home. Many airlines will allow you to travel with large antlers, so check with your flight company before traveling. We can handle shipping of trophies to anywhere in the world. Taxidermy services not included in hunt packages.
Tipping is a sensitive subject, and something we here at Record Horn feel should come from your heart, and not be imposed or something that is mandatory, but something earned based on providing quality services to you . . our guest. Tipping the guides and staff is truly part of well managed services. I am often asked "How much should I tip my guide"? As a guideline, it is industry standard that satisfied guests tip up to 10% of their total hunt cost. The majority of the tip going to your guide, and the remainder being split up between other staff that assisted in your hunt. If you do not feel your guide deserved a tip, please let us know.
