Overall Impression: Very Good

This was the first season that the property was hunted as a commercial operation. (I had hunted the property the year before, while it was in private hands.) These guys have done a terrific job. A group of about 8 of us hunted the last 3 1/2 days of Alabama's season (which ended 1/31/2004). We all saw lots of deer. I saw 50, including two probably shootable bucks, which I passed on waiting for something bigger. Although only 3 or 4 bucks were taken, I believe everyone in the group saw at least one buck that met the 15" minimum inside spread dimension. The Alabama deer herd has a very late rut, which should have been going on while we were there ... we did see lots of bucks chasing doe, but I couldn't tell whether the rut was past peak or not. The lodging was very nice, not luxurious but more than adequateand, and the food was very good. But the guides were terrific and Mike Cutler, the GM, was the best. These guys were friendly (and funny) and really went out of their way to make sure everyone had a quality experience. I'm going back next year for sure.
