Stewardship Hunt

Whitetail Deer and Feral Pig

Quality deer management practices are strictly followed for whitetail deer harvests. Feral pigs are liberally harvested to control the extent of damage done by these feral animals. 

There are a total of 8 slots for the Oct-Dec Stewardship hunts and 8 slots for the Jan-Mar Stewardship hunts.  All hunters for the Stewardship hunt must also meet the general regulations requirements for qualified hunters at Howell Woods.

Monetary Payment

  1. Pay slots for the Stewardship deer/feral pig hunts will be filled on a first pay basis. Slots can only be reserved with a $100.00 deposit or full payment for the total number of slots requested. Deposit is refundable if slots are cancelled more than 30 days prior to the scheduled hunt date. Deposit is non-refundable for any reason if the slots are canceled less than 30 days prior to the scheduled hunt date.


Subject to change on a yearly basis - valid though April 2013

All monies collected from all the hunting related activities that are conducted on the property are used to fund the continued operations that benefit the ongoing wildlife/habitat management, environmental education, and low impact outdoor recreation activities. Simply put, wildlife conservation pays for wildlife conservation!
