"They take great care of the deer!! I have never seen deer with antlers that big. This was such a neat experience. There is plenty of Parking and a taxidermy museum included with your admission."
Mike 1046, TripAdvisor
"The owners are fantastic. They love their deer. If they have fawns, you get to feed them. You feed the deer apples. I hope they never retire!

We go every time we are in Cook's forest. They also have an interesting museum of animals like moose, elk. We are not hunters. Plan on spending at least an hour there."
Eileen R, TripAdvisor
"Rather rustic facility but so very worth the drive and money. The deer are so sweet and the lady who runs it is very knowledgeable. Best to plan your trip at feeding time.

Feeding the apples to the deer totally makes the experience. They go from being far and shy to up close and friendly. We try to go every year."
