Would Recommend: Yes

Overall Impression: Great

This was my first guided hunt and it was a memorable one. Archery hunted Nov. 6 - 11. With over 12,000 available acres to hunt, only 11 hunters were in camp. 3 of us hunted on ~3,000 acres for the 1st 3 days and I saw plenty of 140-150 class bucks - just not close enough. Plenty of sightings even though the temps were 70 & 80 degress for 2 of the 5 days. Guides are knowledgable, but not in an arrogant way, and are willing to take suggestions. You won't find any people any more friendly or hospitable. My brother-in-law and I did the fully guided hunt, but will try the semi-guided hunt the next time (and there WILL BE A NEXT TIME). These folks have a great thing going because they treat people the way they want to be treated. The area (and the properties we saw) is just beautiful whitetail habitat. Can't wait till next time.
