At Westervelt Lodge, deer hunters may harvest a buck each day of your stay as long as each buck meets age or point and antler spread restrictions. The herd at Westervelt Lodge contains many young eight points. These are the mature, trophy bucks of the future. We ask that you use good judgment while hunting. Not all eight-points are created equal—the difference is age. Please harvest only those bucks judged in physical appearance to be 3 1/2 years or older, with eight or more points and ear-width spread.

Adequate doe harvest is essential in maintaining desirable deer density and balanced sex ratio. The results are apparent in a quality deer herd in balance with the habitat, and better quality bucks for our customers. Hunters are strongly encouraged to harvest a doe during their hunt. Accurately identify and harvest does at your discretion.

Our scientific management began in 1951 and has produced optimum sex ratios at Westervelt.
