We found this wonderful setting and accommodating host was just what we needed to relax and top up our energy.

Leaving with a yearning to come back.

Came with my dad on a father son trip. I'm going off to college next year and this will probably be our last trip together for a while, if not for ever. I shot my first two deer of my life here (Axis and White Fallow Bucks) and had the best time of my life. Couldn't be happier with the service or experience. Great people here. I will never forget this weekend as long as I live. Thank you!!


Came with family and had a wonderful time with family and it was nice to see y'all again. Hope to see y'all again soon.

James and Terry

Your accommodations, food, Hideout, property and animals are a dream come true. What really makes your hunting lodge is your staff/guides. They made the stay, making us wanting to come back. By the way, the trophy Whitetail helped as well!

Keith and Jerry

It looks like you produced some great "management" whitetails. I am ecstatic with my Axis Buck. While it is not the largest I have taken, it was a wonderful hunt, exciting shot, and the deer has wonderful symmetry and barrel shape. Of the 3 on the harvest pictures, I like it the most by far. I wish you the best success in you venture for you and me. I can't wait to return. I have been on 10 Hill Country hunts and yours was the finest overall. Have a great holiday season and I hope to see you in 2010.


Great Expectations, even greater result! Hospitality and a feeling of home was all toping one fantastic weekend. Solid combination of challenge coupled with plenty of opportunity! I will be back with reinforcements!


I had a great time. Saw lots of animals, guide was excellent, food was awesome. This was truly a "hunting" experience. I will be back many times with clients and family.


The food was great, the guide was amazing and the hunting was unforgettable!!


This truly has been a dream come true! Great hunting and great food. We were treated like family and felt like it too. Thanks to all. We will be back for sure.

Rick and Jane

I’ll be looking for that cook book! What a great time, and great company. The three of you were very enjoyable for Tom and me. Can’t wait to come back with our friends. Thank you!

Great facilities, food & all of the staff were fun and super nice. I felt at home here and part of the group. Tuff hunting, windy and just one day of hunting is too short. But that is find and all about hunting. Great views & really enjoyed the HideOut. I only wish that my wife and little girl came with me. Let’s do that next year.


Great time, great facility. The food and company was excellent and the animals were plentiful and beautiful. Thanks for everything.


We had a blast. Guides were great, animals were beautiful, and food was wonderful. Thanks for a trip of a lifetime.
