Overall Impression: Fantastic!!!!!

Blows Pike County away!!!! I know that a BIG statement, but having hunted there for years, I can honestly say it's accurate. Its what Pike county "used to be". I originally saw them on the Penns Woods TV show. They just started their own TV show that will be airing on Fox Sports this year, so there were a lot of cameramen filming hunts when I was there during the rut. They own and farm about 13,000 acres and they really know thier land. Most of the hunting was done around fields and food plots in timber. I saw shooters on every stand. I passed on 2 135 class 10 pt and I nice 8 because I had seen bigger deer out of shooting range. I ended up taking a beautiful 150 class 11 pt with heavy mass. 7 of 10 hunters scored. There was a guy in camp who took a HUGE 184" monster the week before me!!!! John and Matt spend alot of time talking to everybody at night and the guides are friendly and knowledgable. The lodge is huge with a game room, galley and home theater. I am going back for a blackpowder hunt in a couple of weeks and will post an update. PS: Be forewarned...they have strict managment policies in place. A guy shot shot a small eight and got fined.
