About this hunt

This hunt is 5 days and 6 nights including lodging and meals. The Pre-Rut Hunt is the last few weeks before the primary rut and is one of the best times to tag a trophy. During this time the bucks become much more active within their home ranges; putting down rubs and scrapes and looking for those first early-cycling doe. 90 percent of overall scraping activity happens outside of the shooting hours. But, for five to seven days after the October full moon, daylight scraping activity starts to heats up. At this time about 50 percent of scrape visits occur during the day. Our guides will find the hottest sign on our farms and have you perched in a stand ready to intercept one of our mature bucks. For this hunt, you'll be allowed to harvest a 4 1/2 year old or older buck with minimum body weight of 190 lbs or bucks will have a minimum 5-inch mass measurement at the H1 measurement, antler base, and a doe. This method ensures our bucks have the opportunity to reach maturity. Please inquire on available date before booking!

Great place

stands were very good. Rooms were nice , food was good. Very happy with the guides. Nice folks. Needed a better practice area with good targets but other then the heat it was good.

not their fault at all, but it was super hot, 100 degrees. So seen very little movement. I did connect with a nice buck on the last night. So ended well.

Absolutely and by far the best I have ever used, PERIOD! My guides, Luke and Caleb, were the finest young men I have met for many years. They knew the business, their attitude was exactly as it should have been and they both went out of their way to afford me every opportunity to harvest a trophy buck. The weather and the delay of the rut was in control and I was not able to get my deer, but that is fine. I saw a lot of deer, but the big boys weren't moving. My physical impairment came back to haunt me, but that was all my fault, not theirs. I underestimated my condition and was not able to complete my hunt, but it was still worth every penny, and more! I hope to plan better in the future so I can go back and enjoy a better experience!

Everything except my physical limitations! They could not have done a better job!

The weather and my limitations!

Bowhunting Western Kentucky.

I like the area and terrain we hunt there. The abundance of deer and knowing that a true giant could be seen and possibly harvested on any given day. Mark and his guides are gentlemen that know what is happening on their hunting grounds, and will do their best to put you in the best spot possible.

The 1200 mile ride to get there and then again to get home. We can't control weather and some days can be warmer than I would like.

Bow hunting

The farms we hunted were set up great for all wind directions. I saw plenty of deer every sit. There are a lot of mature bucks on their farms I passed on a nice mid 140 ten the first day and saw several other bucks bigger but couldn't close the deal. The guides were very attentive and worked with me to try and make it happen. Great food, lodging and atmosphere.

An awesome hunting experience !

Mark and his team did an awesome job placing us where we were likely to see game, the lodge accommodations were excellent, the food and hospitality were great too.

No fault of the outfitter but the first couple of days were unseasonably hot so game movement was a little slow.

Excellent Outfitter with knowledgeable guides and plenty of property.

I've hunted with several Outfitters across North America and they have their act together. The guides were very professional but also made you feel like family. The outfitter is very upfront with you about the fact that if you want to kill a good buck you need to sit all day. Play the odds, you can't shoot them from the lodge. I was very pleased with everything about this outfitter and have all ready booked for the upcoming season.

Every outfitter has something that is a little different and will never please everyone. They did a great job with telling you all of the rules upfront and that's all you can ask of an outfitter.

Great Experience !

2017 will be my seventh hunt with this outfitter. They are professional, accommodating , and very knowledgeable of their properties and the deer that reside there. Mark and his guides are top notch hunters and do their very best to provide clients with a hunt that is both successful and a memorable experience. I highly recommend this outfitter to any hunter who enjoys deer, deer hunting and a capable staff together with a rustic homelike setting.
