Review Information

Hunter: C. McIlvaine



Would Recommend: no

Overall Impression: disgusted

During my November 2001 hunt I saw a total of eleven bucks on a 5-day hunt, with the best buck possibly scoring 110 BC. The outfitter had stated to me that I should expect to see 25 to 35 bucks per day, with several bucks scoring 140-150 BC. I had even purchased a second tag in anticipation of taking two trophy bucks. On the second day of my hunt the outfitter advised me "YOU WILL BE SITTING IN THE BEST DEER STAND IN THESE UNITED STATES!". On the last day of the hunt I took a 12inch, 6-point. I have made several attempts to contact RALPH HATTER concerning the $1,500.00 he charged me for harvesting a second deer (which I did not take) with negative results.

Outfitter Response: this report is absolutley false. i have been there and the only way you can see 11 bucks with ralph in 5 days is hunt 30 minutes and spend the rest of the time in the cabin. i saw 58 in 7 hours. a friend of mine saw 500 in 5 days. the lodging is average but the food and everything else was excellent. this report needs to be taken off your website.
