Fellow bow hunters: I have been on a quest for a P & Y buck for the past 8 years. I have bow hunted for 33 years. I have been to the bow zone in Alberta, hunted Ohio & PA on private land looking for an opportunity for a trophy buck. Timberland was recommended as a personal reference. Myself and several buddies have hunted Timberland for the past 3 years. Our group has always taken a P & Y buck. This past year were were 2 out of 3. We decided on the mid-west as it was a sound place to hunt for trophy whitetails. The stands were all preset, deer areas were prescouted and documentation of trophy bucks were there. I believe all that anyone can ask out of any outfitter is to work hard and put you were the animals are. Timberland offers the best fair chase hunt I have ever experienced so this is why I keep going back. I taggged a 142 10 pt. on my 3rd year hunting at Timberland. The odds were to the deers favor. The wet weather caused the crops not to be harvested. This wasn't the outfitters fault. We hunted different stands every day listening to Ben & the guides recommendations. Our group hunted hard and we are serious bow hunters. Everyone was pleased in the efforts put forward by Ben & his guides. There was never a guarantee offered you only get that in a high fence hunt I hear. I personally and highly recommend this outfitter if you are after trophy class whitetails in the midwest. If you want to talk with me send me an email I will reply. roofchez@aol.com. Ben Plattner has worked hard for me and our hunt group to put us where the Big Boys travel. That is all I ask from any outfitter. We enjoyed the comradery at camp. You will not be disappointed in Timberland Outfitters of west central IL. Sincerely, Henry Passerini Florida
