Overall Impression: Fun

I hunted there between Christmas and New Years 2007. The weather was really bad with rain the entire trip. The rut does not start until mid January in that area so I was there a little early. I only saw three deer the entire trip and one of the was real far away and I was only able to see it for two seconds. The other two were jumped as I was walking to a stand and I only got a glimpse of their tail. There were about ten hunters there with me over the three days. They killed two does. And two deer that were fines. One kid killed a three pointer and another man shot a really small seven point that was about 13". The food was good. They served more of a country cooking that a deer camp menu. Steve the outfitter was really cool. The guides were really pretty good. The guide I had, Garrett was really young and it seemed that our group was seeing less deer than the others. I was not impressed with him at all. I would request David or Clint if I were to return. Everyone seen deer on the trip though, but mostly in the afternoons in the green fields where you could not take a shot. The lodge is first class and with private rooms it is the best. Robeta cooks up a nice meal and everyone like to talk. I would hunt there again. I would just wait until late December and request a different guide.
