I saw many deer while I hunted at Premier Outfitters. The guide Luke worked his butt off for me. Moving me in a couple different sets after spotting trophy deer on different farms. The weather was awful in the 70's in December, and I still saw many bucks. The 2 million dollar lodge was all custom wood inside, the beds were awesome very uncharacterstic for outfitters. Beds at most outfitters are horrible. The place was clean, people were all polite and hard working. I got my shot at the deer of a lifetime right at dark and missed on the opportunity of a lifetime. I dont know if I hit something in between me and him but he was a giant; I will never forget that hunt he was a booner for sure. The farms were absolutley beautiful and all the deer seemed to seemingly walk around unpressured, unlike many other outfitters I have been at where every deer looks up at you in your tree?? The deer at Premier were on the regular patterns and not pressured at all. I will be back to make up for my lost opportunity and I will kill a giant. I have no doubt. Mark the owner was polite. Mark could tell I was very frustrated about my shot and lost opportunity. I will be back this year. Loved it here !!!!
Chris, don't feel bad you weren't the only hunter to miss on that hunt. Two others missed as well. It happens. The weather was extremely warm for December in the mid to upper 70s but still, everyone saw bucks and several slammers. Next time your luck will change. See you this fall.
Weather was unseasonably warm Dec. 70's and I still saw many deer.
