James Thaddeus Hawbaker has been hunting for 59 of his 68 American years.  Since 1960, he's been teaching both men and women, young and old, how to effectively bag white-tail deer, turkey, and other game found in these parts.
In 1980, Big Jim started building his fabulous Hunting Lodge, down along Dodge Creek in the Irish Basin.  Since then, the old master and his top-flight crew (including Ma and the 12 Hawbaker boys) have entertained and trained hundreds of hunters across Western New York

Big Jim's Lodge is more than just hunting.  Just as good is Ma Hawbaker's home-cookin.  Going at it from 3 am til 9 pm, Mother and her helpers put together the yummiest meals this side of the Allegheny River.
During the off-season, when Big Jim's crew is preparing for the up-an-coming deer or turkey season, the Lodge does not slow down.  Expert woodsman and craftsman, Andy Dean, heads up "Artifact Expeditions" across Allegany and Cattaraugus County.  They ALWAYS find something you can take home to show loved ones, like 400-year-old Iroquois arrowheads, stone beads, stone knives, and other tools/artifacts from long ago.
