Fans of retired NASCAR driver Tony Stewart should be pumped about this!
Retired NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is opening up his 414-acre property for guided turkey hunts, with plans for guided fishing tours and deer hunts on the horizon. Hidden Hollow Ranch, located just west of Columbus, Indiana, was recently given zoning approval for the bed-and-breakfast and fishing and hunting facility.
Paying groups of up to 12 people will stay in Stewart's main residence, which features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and even a basement bowling alley. Stewart typically stays at the $3.5 million ranch 21 days during the year.
The property will commence operations this spring, beginning with Indiana's turkey season which runs April 22 through May 14. Those hunts have already been sold to Browning Trail Cameras for a corporate event. Guided fishing tours could begin as early as this summer, although deer hunts may be four or five years away. This is due in part to deer numbers being low on his property after a winter in which a lot of guests harvested deer.
Stewart is working on a website to market the fishing and hunting options at the ranch and interested outdoor folk will be required to apply and undergo a background check before being approved. Costs for hunts are not known at this time.
