Overall Impression: Very disappointing

Trent is a REALLY NICE guy and he tries to deliver a good hunt. But his hunts suffer from a lack of experience, stands and land. His website is marketed well, but it doesn't really reflect a true picture of the actual hunting. While he has 4000 acres to hunt, he had very few stands up. Even with only 3 hunters, there were not enough stands for you to hunt a "fresh" stand if the one you were assigned wasn't producing. What stands he had were either in poor condition,not located very well or not secure. Stand location was great for smaller bucks and does, but not for trophy bucks. Also, his 4000 acres is actually several smaller parcels of land. There is hunting pressure on surrounding properties which may explain the lack of trophy bucks spotted. We hunted 3 straight days(all day long) during the pre-rut and only one decent buck was spotted(approx.135-140 class). One guy took a 100 class buck on the last day because he didn't want to drive the 16 hr drive home empty-handed. Other than that, only a few 100 class bucks and numerous does were spotted. I only took the hunt because Trent told me that he expected to harvest several B&C deer this season and that he had 6 bucks patterned that would score over 140! Trent is a honest man and I still believe he has that type of quality in his area, but I think it's going to take 2-3 years before his operation is producing as promised. If you want to hunt Oklahoma trophy deer with an experienced outfitter, try Mt. Hide Outfitters. They are a class act and well worth the money!
