Review Information

Hunter: Richard E.



Would Recommend: No.

Overall Impression: Not good.

Mr. Lott led me to believe that I would have an opportunity to select which buck in the 120-140 B&C range I would like to take. Other hunters in camp were \"promised\" the same opportunity. Needless to say, this was not the case. Six hunters took a grand total of two bucks; neither of which was anywhere close to the 120-140 B&C class. But after four days of hunting and seeing 4,5,& 6 point bucks that were very small, when you see an average 8 pointer...you lower your standards some. Mr. Lott never showed his face in camp. He would call from time to time and say he would be there the next day. He always seemed to have an excuse. Finally, on the next to last day of the hunt, he talked with the oldest hunter in our group and asked him to \"keep an eye on the boys.\" He was referring to our \"guides\" who were 22 & 23 years old. (One of the guides enjoyed shooting at rabbits on the ranch roads while picking up hunters each night.) That really boosted our confidence in Mr. Lott! I would certainly recommend Don Lott\'s operation to anyone that would gladly spend $2500 to go to Texas to eat and not care if they shoot a deer. But if you are after the \'hunt of a lifetime\' and take your deer hunting seriously, this is not the hunt for you.
