Fellow Hunters, I hunted at Ford Creek last October. When I met Travis Barker at a sportsman show the previous February he told me his ranch was private property and I would be staying in a beautiful private cabin with a queen bed as well as seeing elk and deer 'on his ranch' that were plentiful and of record book quality. Ford Creek and Travis Barker are not as advertised. Travis' ranch is approx 5 acres and all the hunting is done on public national forest land. And yes, you will see plenty of other hunters. My accomodations were in a shack and my bed was an old army cot that didn't even have a pad. Good thing I had an emergency sleeping bag in my rig or I would have been pretty cold at night. My guide was brand new and had NEVER been in the area before. He had no idea where the game was or any type of a plan at all. I did however manage to get a decent buck (no thanks to Travis or my guide) only to have the meat thrown on the dirty shop floor that was covered with dirt, oil and horse manure. It seemed to me that Travis and the guides were more concerned about getting drunk than taking care of the clients wants or needs. The week I was at Ford Creek there were 13 hunters in camp and only two aniamals were killed. Most of the hunters did not even see an elk or deer let alone a shooter. False advertising of this place should be illegal. If you are considering booking with this sorry excuse of an outfitter please feel free to email me. Bob
