All I can say is "WOW" after 30+ years of hunting and 10 years hunting with outfitters around the country this was the "BEST" paid hunt I've ever been on. From the lodge to the food, guides, attention to detail and the effort the outfitter and guides went to was outstanding. I only had 1 sit on a stand that I didn't see deer and that day the wind was blowing like crazy. Even though I didn't harvest a deer I had plenty of chances. On the thid day I drew a "Honey Hole" farm with some huge bucks spotted and on video. That night I was so pumped up to get on that stand I just about had a heart attack. At 5:45 the deer parade started I seen 20 + deer in an hour and all but 2 were bucks. I passed on two 120in 8 pts and had my mind set a on a huge 10 they were seeing. The next night on the same stand I saw the big bow at last light. ( this was the biggest deer I have ever seen in the wild and "free roaming". He was within 30 yards and heading my way. Light was fading fast and I could barely see my pins. I only needed a few more steps ..... did I mention this was my last day hunting with a 5 min warnimg ( dark closing fast ) so all the sudden I hear a big splash in the creek bottom I was previously watching and here is a huge 10 pt 150in + standing on an island in the creek. I could see him real clear because the light was reflecting off the creek water. So I draw back and now I can't see my pins. The shot was 30 yards and I pretty much new were my 30 yard pin was in relation to the pin guard ( round ring ) and it was glowing so I said this is it....I squeezed the release and PING, I hit the creek bottom. I gave it my best but I didn't close the deal.
Will I be back ???....Absolutely!!!!. This place is great. Mark, Mark's son, Bret and Jimmy went out of there way and I feel I've made friends for life. Rachel the cook was the best and I was going to bring her home to train my wife, then I got a second thought :)
Thanks Mark and the entire staff at Premire Outfitters, KY
