Hunter Comments
I recommend this outfitter

Tadd is doing it right. My group books a late season / January bow hunt every year. We know the hunting and conditions are going to be tough, but we are just looking for great accommodations, great food, and the opportunity to see a lot of deer and maybe have a shot at a trophy. This year's experience exceeded our expectations on all fronts. The accommodations are first rate and very comfortable. The food is top notch, and more than you will get at other outfitters. The bed rooms are comfortable, and the multiple bathrooms are clean and adequate.

As far as the hunting, you won't find better property. Plenty of food, plenty of cover, and the new food plots are well thought-out with respect to prevailing winds. I saw an absolute ton of 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 year old bucks, with a couple shooters in between. Great genetics and a ton of 130 inch eight-points means next year and beyond will be spectacular. All of the stands are very comfortable with easy-access, and the hunter safety systems in place on each stand add to the experience. The stand locations are well marked and easy to find, with reflective life-lines literally lighting up the stands in the dark.

Finally, Tadd and his guides genuinely care about putting each hunter on big deer. I have hunted in Kentucky and Illinois for the past 10 years, and I can honestly tell you that Tadd is one of the hardest working guides I have been around. I can't wait to go back next year.
