A world-class hunting ranch with a unique purpose: to provide kids with opportunities to hunt, fish, and learn wildlife management

Proceeds from our guided hunts and supporting donations provide free hunting experiences for kids through these youth organizations - Foundation for Hope Outdoors and Kicking Bear Ministries.

By choosing any one of our 3 trophy packages, hunters are supporting the mission by funding herd management hunts for kids.  The number of youth hunts we can provide is only limited to the success of our trophy hunt program,and our generous supporters.  Donations can be made to either Foundation for Hope Outdoors or the Ray Park Foundation, with the designation "Hunts for Kids".

Since the start of this program, we have been able to provide life changing experiences to hundreds of kids through these foundations.  With your help, we can continue to expand our programs for kids well into the future.

Two fundraisers that we participate in each summer support our mission to provide hunting and fishing experiences for kids.  The Ray Park Foundation Muskie Fishing Tournament occurs the last Tuesday in June each year and participants enjoy a great day on beautiful Lake St. Clair.  Dinner is provided following an action-packed day of catching some of the largest fish native to the Great Lakes region.  Find out more at:

July brings the Quad Shootout, a 2 day, 4 event competition challenging teams to show their skills in golf, trap shooting, pop up archery, and 3D archery.  Capped off by a wild game dinner and plenty of prizes, participants look forward to this one year after year.  Now in it's 6th year, the event continues to grow and is still unlike anything else you'll find.  more info at
