Overall Impression: excellent

This was my fourth guided hunt in either WY of MT and by far the best. The hunt was great and I killed my best mule deer to date but that is only part of what made the experience so enjoyable. The quality of the people was remarkable. Eric and his staff were very friendly and went out of their way to get to know each of the hunters in camp and that we were all having a good time. Which was not a problem given the amount of joking around and storytelling that went on both over meals and around the fire in the evening. It was our first time with Milk River Outfitters but most of the others had hunted there before, some several times. It felt like being in camp back in PA with lifelong friends rather than 2,500 miles away from home with 20 strangers. I was hunting with a friend who was whitetail hunting. He killed his best whitetail ever on the first night in camp and I filled my mule deer tag the next morning, a 5X4 with eye guards, a very nice 11-point to all my friends back home in PA. We hiked a few miles on the first day of the hunt and saw several bucks. The hiking was not particularly difficult, mostly pretty flat though we did hike up a few draws. I was prepared for another full day of hiking but we found a group of three bucks together before 8am the second day, two were shooters, and I was spared another day of hiking! All in all this was a tremendous experience, exactly what I hoped a western hunt would be like. We booked immediately for 2010.
