Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt:Doug Arnold is a experienced and enthusiastic outfitter who works hard to optimize every hunter's opportunity. The lodge is spacious and comfortable. My wife and I were both hunting and we were afforded our own bedroom. Hunting was from treestands or ground blinds. We hunted the second week of the season. Doug has many leases, so there is ample places for hunters to sit. Of the 6 hunters in camp, 4 hunters took deer. 2 of the deer were in the 160 class. My wife got an big old 9 pointer Day 2. I passed on smaller bucks. I was looking for something at least 160, but I never saw anything close. I plan to return in the future.
Equipment Recommendations:Some of the stands require long shot up to 300 yds. Doug can find a stand for you if you don't want to shoot that far.
