Hunters' Retreat

Facebook-Website-Preview-Hunters-2019-Canceled (1).jpg

The Hunters’ Retreat has been canceled this year due to storm damage. We will be reopening the Hunters’ Retreat in 2020! Hope to see you then!

Are you looking for a place to gun deer hunt this fall? Are you searching for a place where you feel safe taking your children on their first hunt, and where you know the conversations, jokes, and ethics will be clean? Then you have found the right place at Silver Birch Ranch for your next hunt.

Over one million acres of public hunting land are right out our backdoor. Start a new hunting tradition with your family or buddies by coming to a place where you will be in the company of other Christian hunters, be served great food, and hear good clean stories.

The purpose for this Gun Hunting Retreat is not only for hunting, but more importantly for creating an atmosphere where:

  • We can learn from God’s word and Godly example

  • We can provide a good example for our kids

  • Safe and fun hunt in the National Forrest
