Shooting Safety Rules 

Daddy, this offer is intended for your group of girls from 5-10 girls. Sign up now for your reservation. Bring your group for this learning and adventure opportunity.  They will be allowed to participate in any portion of the whitetail deer hunt and activities as they desire.  We will incorporate learning, safety, science and adventure in this camp.  Hunting in the "Princess Blind"will be awarded to one princess in the evening and one in the morning of each day.  The child must be at least three years old. The daddy will be the one in the blind with the girl to hunt, watch animals and have the bonding experience with his daughter.  A photo and short story will be posted to our website for each girl.  

Why is it called "Darling Daughter" Deer Camp.  That was the nickname of the daughter of the ranch owners. She grew up with the name Darling Daughter Jill or as they would say, "our DDJ".​
