Overall Impression: Great hunt

My family hunted with the Pittmans two years, 2000 and 2002. Because of our schedules, we had to book hunts during the week between Christmas and New Year's both times. The Alabama rut is in mid-to-late January, and that's when a majority of the big bucks are killed. The first year, my brother passed up a good buck the first day and didn't have another opportunity, and my father and I both went without opportunities at legal bucks (8 points, 16 inch inside spread). Weather interfered - mixed snow, sleet, and freezing rain, with high winds every day. Still, there were plentiful does and young bucks, but none of the big boys came out to play. We hunted deep woods every morning, with light luck, and greenfields every evening, with large numbers of deer and the opportunity to see a big buck at any moment. The 2002-2003 season brought us back, and this time we cashed in. My brother scored on a nice 8-point the first evening, and followed it up with a big doe the next evening. I got a tall, thick 9-point the second evening of the hunt. Because you can shoot two does a day in Alabama, you could easily come back with tons of venison; we held off to hunt the bucks, and because we had limited cooler space for bringing it all back. The accomodations are beautiful; private rooms with comfortable beds and great art/photographs on the walls. In our case, we got the separate guest house, with a private living area and kitchen. There is a large living area in the main lodge with great trophies, art, and pictures on every wall; satellite TV to catch up on the games; and card games if you want in the evening. The food was great - hot, home-cooked, and hearty food for all three meals of the day. You will get fat if you don't watch yourself there. Hunting is easy; truck rides down the road in the morning, where you follow ample flagging and reflectors to your ladder stand; evenings brought truck rides to elevated boxes - sometimes with a walk, sometimes right off the road. You will see deer, it's just a matter of being in the right place at the right time for the big boys. The guides know the area well, so you will get opportunities, and always feel like you're on deer.
