The quality of the entire hunt experience at Premier Outfitters had almost nothing to do with the quality of the deer hunting. What i am referring to is the willingness of the guides to work and adapt to weather and other variables that affect deer hunting, the quality of the the properties, etc. It was obvious that the deer had not been pressured at all previously in the season. The lodging was excellent and the food was very good. The attention to details was very obvious: scent control, stand placement, more than adequate acerage for each hunter, trophy management, proper food plots in the proper locations, low pressure pre-season scouting, etc.
And now to the deer hunting: In 2 days of hunting, i had 23 buck sightings. And i'm not talking about spikes. Some of them may have been the same deer, 2 or 3 at the most. The buck to doe ratio that i observed and documented was somewhere between 1:1 and 1.5:1. Amazing! And the deer didn't act pressured at all. Although it was a rifle hunt, there were several shooters that i passed on the first day that were well within bow range: 20 yards and less. Could have spit on one of them from the tree stand!
None to date. If you are the outfitter please email us.
although it was warm, the deer still moved. Just differently and at slightly different intervals than if it was seasonably cold.
