You may want to hold your breath as you pass through the gate at Deer Tracks Ranch Wildlife Preserve. Venturing into this unique wilderness by itself is spellbinding with 1,465 sprawling acres of mixed forests, 3 miles of trout streams, swamps, creek, small open fields and ravines. Bounded by a half mile of frontage on the Manistee River, a designated Blue-Ribbon Trout Stream, Deer Tracks Ranch Wildlife Preserve remains one of the most pristine and unbroken tracks of land in the northern Lower Peninsula. Despite the “out of the way” setting, Deer Tracks Ranch Wildlife Preserve, just 30 minutes from Traverse City and 2.5 hours from Lansing, is Michigan’s largest single high-fence hunting enclosure and is a haven for things to see and do. Climb aboard an ATV and tour the pristine preserve, hike or bike over 15 miles of winding trails, venture up the 110’ fully restored fire tower for a panoramic view of hundreds of miles of serene countryside or drop a canoe into the scenic Big Manistee River and fish for native trout, steelhead and salmon. The old-time hunting camp ambience is also felt in the rustic elegance of hand-crafted, world-class lodging accommodations that blend beauty and skilled craftsmanship with all the comforts of home and offering lots of plush extras. After a full day of adventures relax in the comfort of the Big Lodge; a unique custom- built log home perched on the bank of the Manistee River. The Big Lodge has all the amenities of a fully-operational modern log home and gleams with rustic elegance. Easily sleeps 12+ and features a private master suite with private bathroom. If you prefer a bit more rustic, the Green Lodge, an authentic log cottage once owned by the Upjohn family, also nestled on the bank of the Manistee River, features custom touches including handmade furniture and 1960's circa kitchen. The Green Lodge offers all the amenities of a well-equipped, old fashioned log home. Easily sleeps 14 and features a private master suite with walk out to the patio and awesome views of the river’s bend. A little further out, and offering true quiet, rustic seclusion, are The Brookie, a stone’s throw to the Manistee River, and the Eagle’s Nest tree house overlooking Pierson’s Creek. Friends and families will love gathering for meals in the generous Dining Hall complete with massive commercial kitchen, abundant seating for large groups and families or intimate seating for two, wildlife viewing room with wet bar, offices and attached caretaker’s quarters. There’s no shortage of storage with the 6-door, 1600 sq. ft. ATV utility building with attached guide’s quarters, or the 4000 sq. ft. workshop and 2000 sq. ft. barn ideal for equestrian stalls. Hunters will appreciate the 24x24 animal processing area with 12x12 walk-in freezer. Numerous adventures await; pack a lunch and kayak to the 15-acre island, cross the bridge over the Manistee River for further site-seeing, or head out in search of young fawns in the spring. Come wintertime, set off for a day of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling. Hunt for antler sheds, target shooting at the range, watch abundant wildlife from several custom-log viewing stations. Track trophy deer, buffalo, elk, and many varieties of birds and mammals, or relax and fish from three ponds stocked with trout, bass and panfish. Deer Tracks Ranch Wildlife Preserve offers an idyllic natural setting for a one-of-a-kind, first-class equestrian facility, exceptional hunting or fishing club, philanthropic sanctuary, impressive corporate venue, camp for all ages, or one’s very own private, secure Up North getaway or year-round home.
