Review Information

Hunter: Reed Hoskinson



Would Recommend: no

Overall Impression: poor

Our party of 5 booked a 2008 first season rifle hunt with Grand River Oufitters. This a is production line hunt with 65 hunters a week moved through. The main lodge was "smoking allowed" so we ate pretty poor food in a cigarette smoke haze. Don has lots of blinds, some in pretty poor condition, where you are assigned to hunt. Our group seemed to be assigned on the "edge" of deer country. We slept in a second cabin where there was no smoking, thank God! You transport yourself to the daily hunt, and call if someone shoots a deer. Out of 65 hunters there were several deer shot, but almost all were the 2-3 year old 8 points with no mass. This is definitely not a trophy hunt - everyone shoots the first deer they see with 4 points on one side.
