Since 1992, we have been intensely managing our ten thousand acres with one single goal in mind: “To Produce Trophy Whitetail Bucks". We have created the ideal scenario that most hunting clubs covet as we are harvesting by age class rather than by the minimum number of points, spread, or score.
There are no fences on the island which allows us to offer 100% fair chase hunting.
Giles Island is operating under new owner/management starting in 2022. We will continue with the commercial hunting operation by offering alligator, dove, duck, and squirrel hunts as previously. The deer hunts will be limited to two management bucks and a doe or two depending on whether we have met our quota on does. All deer hunts will be one on one guided. A shooter buck will be one that the guide says is on the "Hit List" which has been created by management. In general, a hit list buck will be 5 1/2 years or older and will score less than 145".
REQUIREMENTS FOR HARVEST
Judged By Your Guide
Hunters will be allowed to shoot a buck that the guide has determined to be on the "Hit List". In general, a Hit List buck will be at least 5 1/2 years old and score less than 145".
Hunters will be able to harvest one or more does, in addition to the management bucks, until the quota set by management has been reached for the season. We do not harvest does on or around our food plots.
