I also hunted with Graham Outdoor Adventures in 2008 and 2011 with Jim Peterson. We had exellent hunts both times we were out and could not have had anymore fun with Keith. He made it very clear that we were welcome and could use, eat, or drink anything in the lodge. He also took us to wal-mart to get anything else we wanted to eat or drink. The accomadations were great.
In 2008 when we were out, I saw around 75 deer in 1 week with a ratio of 1:1. Maybe only 5-8 shooter bucks but when you seen them you knew he was a wall hanger. The only time I ever watched a buck breed a doe was at Graham Outdoor Adventures. What a sight to see! I passed up opportunities to shoot 120-130 class deer hoping for one of the bigger ones we were seeing. I was unsuccessful on a trophy white tail buck, however I did kill 2 doe that week.
In 2011 when we went back, we went out the week of rut. I believe we were a week to late for rut. We seen some big bucks but only in the early morning hours. We had a full moon all week and the weather was in the 70's all week. All the odds were against us. In situations like that you can only hope for the best, We booked this trip 2 years in advance and it was just unfortunate for us the weather was hot that week. However, I again passed up on 120-130 class bucks because I know there are some GIANTS there. I've seen them. This trip I was unsuccessful on killing a buck, but have gotten to keep many fun filled memories. If your looking for a great weeks hunt, great guide, great food, and are ready to laugh your ass off, book your next hunt with Keith. You wont be upset! Just remember, your buying the experience....NOT the deer, it's fair chase!!!
