Overall Impression: Excellent

Having been ripped off on 2 previous elk & 2 bear hunts,all archery with different outfitters, I feel compelled to write this endorsement for Flatwillow Creek outfitters. It's great to finally find a outfitter who delivers exactly what he says & more. Dwane the owner, did not exaggerate any part of the hunt or accommodations. I booked a 4 day archery antelope decoy hunt, with a friend coming in from Chicago to meet me for a 2on1 hunt. The 9/11 attack made me the only hunter to arrive in camp to hunt but my friend got his deposit refunded. Having never hunted antelope I was involved in a hunt that was not only fun but imformative. I was treated as a hunter, not as a novice or rookie who had paid for whatever the future would bring. I hunted 1&1/2 days with guide Stewart decoying on 10 different stalks, took 1 shot at a 14" buck thought to be 35yds, but it turned out to be 48yds. Result miss. Had 3 other bucks at about 45yds., but bad angles, no shots taken. Stewart was a great guide and has many trophies to prove his knowledge of hunting. Dwane & I went the rest of that 2nd day with 4 more stalks,& one 15" buck at 40yds., but it was at dusk & bad angle so no shot taken. Dwane was my guide on the 3rd. day with 3 stalks & 1/50yd. shot taken in a 40mph. wind at a 14" buck, miss. The next stalk would produce a 35yd.shot at a nice non-typical buck charging the decoy. Harvested & I named him BIN LADEN. I was guaranteed a shot under 40yds. and got it,and know there would have been more if I had passed on this one. Dwane is an excellent archery guide & his people (guides,friends,&family) were always calling to see how we were doing & informing Dwane as to what they observed at other ranches to make my hunt successful. Flatwillow Creek put 110% effort into my hunt and I would refer them to anyone. Thanks to all at Flatwillow Creek Outfitters.
