Hunter: Louis Morales Jr.

Phone: 8012789493


Would Recommend: yes

Overall Impression: Very good

The conditions were not ideal for the archery hunt as it was very hot (90's) in the middle of the day and the moon was full. Despite this we got into elk at times but they were not talking as much. Did harvest a decent 5 point on the 3rd day. My buddy got a bear on the last day. Did not see much after that. Darwin runs a very good and organized camp. I believe the quality of the elk there are much better than what we encountered but the conditions played a major role. I still would recommend this place.
