I do not recommend this outfitter

My 2 sons and four of their friends booked a hunt with Whitetail Heaven outfitters early this for the Kentucky rifle hunt. W.H.O. represented that hunters would enjoy a 5 star lodge...great food...fabulous hunting...knowledgeable guides...40,000 acres of hunting land...comfortable tower box blinds. 40,000 acres is a great exaggeration. Placed a lot of hunters on small 150 and 200 acre farms. Instead of box tower stands by sons group were given latter tree platforms with 40 Yd. views, no safety harness, and no rifle rest, and no deer, of any quantity or quality. They sat in the stands for 10 plus hours a day. As for the expert guides: they were for the most part young men from out of state. They knew nothing about the hunting area. One did not show up one morning, while another forgot keys to farm gates twice. Guides were very poor. As for the 5 star lodge, it does exist. Odds are however, due to the fact it holds about 20 hunters and 76 hunters were booked this week, you will not stay there. Your will stay in a 3rd rate motel and eat fast food. When these facts were discussed with the owner (Tevis) of W.H.O. his response was "I will check into it and get back with you" He never did. He would not return phone calls are texts. Several hunters packed up only after a couple of days of hunting and went home, due to their discuss of the hunt being so misrepresented. Question: Why are the reviews on W.H.O so positive? Easy answer:Tevis will block and delete the negative reviews which tell the real story from their F.B. Tevis has already blocked and deleted my 2 sons and their friends. However, there are several websites rating outfitters that Tevis cannot control. The word must get out identifying these dishonest outfitters. They are running an activity I have enjoyed all of my life. A hunt that these men were looking forward to for months was a horrible experience. As one friend said "worst hunting experience of my life" save your money. DON'T HUNT WITH W.H.O.!!
