Please arrive at Turning Stone Resort Casino no later than 2pm on the day prior to your scheduled hunt. After a meet and greet with your guide, you will be escorted to The Preserve for firearms sighting, safety training and skills assessment. The skills assessment allows the guide to determine how to best structure the hunt based on your abilities. Oneida Indian Nation Outfitters has rental firearms available for guests. For those bringing their personal firearms and ammunition, we'll secure them in our gun safe. After the skills assessment, the guide will transport you back to Turning Stone.


Your hunt days begin at 5am with private transport from your lodging at Turning Stone to The Preserve. After enjoying breakfast at our 24-hour Emerald Restaurant, a guide will escort you to your hunting location. The guide will lead the tracking of the desired class of deer and confirm that the deer falls into the class for which you are committed.

Tree stands are positioned throughout The Preserve to provide an elevated vantage point. You will return to the Hunter's Cabin for lunch and then your guide will lead you back out to your hunting location.

Your guide will assist in tracking, recovery and field-dressing your harvest. Oneida Indian Nation Outfitters can also coordinate taxidermy services upon request for an additional fee. If you are successful on the first day of your hunt you may have the option to hunt a doe or purchase another buck, subject to availability.

  • No upgrades are permitted unless Hunter’s approved credit card is on file, with Hunter’s maximum charge agreed upon prior to the hunt.
  • The Oneida Indian Nation Preserve is not responsible for missed hunting time due to weather or for the failure of Hunter to arrive to sight with firearm and other similar circumstances.
  • We ask that you respect other hunters, the game you will hunt and The Preserve's land. It is important to follow all laws with regard to firearm, bow and crossbow safety.
  • The Preserve's hunting procedures and activities depend on weather, game conditions, skills and physical condition of the hunter. Hunters should be in good physical condition and capable of a moderate hike over uneven terrain.
  • Guides may, at their sole discretion, change hunting areas and methods to increase chances of a successful hunt. We cannot guarantee hunters a kill, however, we do guarantee that you will have the opportunity to harvest a mature whitetail deer. We are not responsible for conditions beyond our control, such as the weather or skill of the hunter.
