Overall Impression: Excellent

I have made three hunts with MRO over the last three years for whitetails(one archery and two rifle hunts). I cannot say enough about Eric and his staff. I consider my relationship with the them more of a friendship than an outfitter/client transaction. This is especially rare in the outfitting industry of today. Eric, Robyn, Darren, Scottie, and the entire MRO crew truly take pride in what they do and it shows. My November 2009 hunt couldn't come fast enough. I arrived in camp and, within an hour, Eric had me looking at dozens of deer. I observed some really nice bucks that first afternoon. My hunt, seriously, could have ended within an hour of arrival! However, after a long drive from Alabama, I wanted to see more of the picturesque Montana landscape. The following morning hunt really cannot be described with words. You just can't describe a Montana sunrise without being there. I saw well over 50 deer that morning and videoed at some great bucks including a really nice 10 point. I literally saw deer from the minute I sat down until the minute I was picked up. My second afternoon transpired in much the same fashion. Within an hour I had already passed on several bucks that most hunters would gladly take. (I have to mention I am not a hunter who has to take a deer that 'scores' well. I am looking for a mature deer that evokes the hunter in me; I know it when I see him.) As the afternoon progressed, such a buck emerged from the cottonwoods along the river. He was a heavy horned, mature buck with bladed brow tines and split G-2's. I gladly put my tag on him; what a hunt! In the days that followed, I took an antlerless mule deer and made a couple of pheasant hunts. If you are looking for a quality outfitter who cares about his customers, then look no further. MRO is truly one of a kind. I have been blessed to be able to hunt with various outfitters in various states and provinces over the course of my life. Fortunately, I have taken some really nice 'trophies' as well. However, none compare to my experiences and the fellowship among friends I share at MRO each fall. Now, November 2010 can't get here fast enough. God Bless, Brian
