Overall Impression: Great

I hunted with Joel in the spring of 08 for turkey and we had bad weather almost the entire time. We were able to get on a couple of turkeys between rain showers but they never came in close enough for a shot. I still had a great time. I booked a whitetail hunt for mid october and did not harvest a deer. I saw a couple bucks in the 120" range that will be great deer for 09. The small bucks were moving alot but the big bucks seemed to still be nocturnal and the rut had not quite kicked in. Out of the 5 hunters that week only one deer was killed and one missed. All hunters reported seeing numerous deer and a few large bucks were sighted but not within range. I booked again this year for a November rut hunt. The accomodations are OK; we were staying in the basement of Joel's house. While I was there he was finishing some additional rooms with baths in his building that were really nice. The meals are exceptional. Dee made 12 different homemade desserts for us to eat. Joel went out of his way to try and help me get a turkey and a deer on my trips. The guides are locals who have alot of knowledge of the area and are avid hunters. Even though I didn't harvest an animal either time I had a great time and made new friends. I am looking forward to going back in November.
