Stewardship Hunt

Whitetail Deer and Feral Pig

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

There are a total of 14 slots for the Oct-Dec Stewardship hunts and 14 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

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. Deposits are non-refundable unless Howell Woods Staff cancels the hunt due to Severe Weather or extenuating circumstances.


Subject to change on a yearly basis.

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!
