Would Recommend: Without a doubt!

Overall Impression: Outstanding

With two sons in the military, one who just recently returned from Iraq and the other learning to fly helicopters, the odds of all three of us having an available week to go hunting together seemed too remote even to consider. So, when against all odds it happened, it was essential that we find a place where everything came together: great hunting, great lodging, and friendly people who went out of their way to make for an enjoyable hunt. After a thorough review of online ratings of lodges and guide services, we settled on Magnum Guide Service and did their 4-day hunt in Eldorado, Texas. All three of us agree that Magnum exceeded our expectations in every way. Jim and Melony Roche were the most gracious hosts I have ever encountered. The lodge at Eldorado was wonderful (as was Melony's cooking). The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. But the best aspect was the hunting. We saw easily 20 to 30 deer per day, with many, many trophy-quality animals, along with countless turkey and even a few javelina. We come from an area of the country where just seeing a deer makes for a good day, seeing a buck makes for a terrific day, and seeing a quality trophy buck is a treat for an entire season. Imagine how to reacted to seeing dozens of trophy bucks over a 4-day hunt. This is the first unqualified endorsement I have ever made: you can book a Texas hunt with Magnum Guide Service and you will not be disappointed in any way!
