About Our Ranch

Founded in 1983, High Adventure Ranch is the home to first-rate Rocky Mountain Elk Hunting.  Featuring one of the finest herds of trophy Elk in the United States, High Adventure Ranch maintains a quality breeding program that includes introducing different genetics and limiting the number of Elk hunts per year.  Because of this, we are able to build larger trophy animals for you, our trophy hunters. Trophy Elk Hunting at High Adventure Ranch includes 6x6+ bulls that commonly score between 270 to 440"+.

Our primary Elk hunting season runs from about September 1 to the end of February allowing ample time to fit even the most demanding schedule, but we also have other species that can be hunted year-round.

High Adventure Ranch is the only hunting preserve of its kind in Missouri.  We presently foster nothing but the finest caliber big game animals and large herds including Elk, Bison, Red Stag from Yugoslavia, and plenty of our native Whitetail Deer.

We have a shooting range where rifle and handgun hunters can fine tune their weapon, but we also encourage black powder and bow hunters as they represent the high caliber sport hunter who finds the challenge of hunting on our ranch very appealing.

Over the years, we have grown to be the one of largest big game hunting ranches in the United States because of our No Game No Pay policy, our continual re-investment in our accommodations, and the dedication of our loyal employees.

My staff and I have been in the "People Business" for many years. We have hosted politicians, actors, doctors, and race car drivers from England, Spain, Europe, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and literally thousands of good ol' boys from the US of A. We look forward to making your next hunt a memorable one.
