Florida deer hunting.
Roberts Ranch is the ultimate hunting destination in Florida. We specialize in whitetail, but we also hunt hogs, turkey, and exotic animal. We are located in northeast Florida, 60 miles South of Jacksonville, in Putnam County. We have 11,000 acres of planted pines, oak hammocks, and hardwood creek bottoms. 7000 acres are enclosed by an 8 foot high game fence.
We have managed the property extensively for the past 15 years, and we have put premium genetics into the preserve to create the best hunting experience in Florida. We have been the top deer breeder in the state and have produced the biggest whitetails in Florida for the past 10 years. We also do European style pheasant hunts that everyone loves to attend!
Roberts Ranch Day Hunts
Our day hunts are fully guided. They include your food, lodging, trophy fee, skinning, caping and field dressing of your trophy. The day hunt includes lodging for 3 days and 2 nights, and includes lunch and dinner. We have a large amount of game for our day hunters to enjoy. Whitetail deer, hogs , pheasant and exotics (trophy axis, black buck, and red stag) are hunted on the ranch. A professional guide will help you throughout your entire hunt, and we are sure to answer any questions you might have.
When you come to do a hunt with us, all you need to bring is your rifle, camo, and cooler. If you shoot at an animal and we visually identify blood, then that will be your harvest regardless of whether the animal is found or not. Our hunts are guaranteed. If you don’t have an opportunity to shoot an animal, then we will get refund you with no additional fee. We ask all hunters to be courteous to both our guides and cook by tipping them after the hunt. Hunters generally tip their guides $200 per animal and tip the cook $50.
If you would like to do a day hunt with us, give me a call immediately because space is limited. If we do have availability, a deposit for half down is required to secure your spot. After we receive your deposit, we will work with you to find the best dates. We offer a total of 20 whitetail hunts and 20 exotic hunts throughout the season, so don’t miss your chance to hunt with us!
