Whitetail Deer
I booked this Hunt with Red Dog after trying to harvest a whitetail deer on my own without success. I can honestly say I was totally impressed with Tim Clark from the first time I spoke with him on the phone. He informed me that they had quite a few deer between their different properties, I figured this was typical outfitter talk. He followed up the phone call with a ton of trail camera pictures to affirm what he told me over the phone. Tim was always available by phone anytime I had questions, and never made me feel like I was bothering him. The day of my hunt came and I was highy excited. Tim met me the day before to show me where I would be hunting, for a semi-guided hunt it felt like a guided hunt with the exception of me hunting by myself, which was exactly what I wanted. I had 5 days set aside to make it happen. 2 hours after I got into the tree stand I was covered up in deer, I was absolutely shocked as I didnt expect to see this many deer right aw! ay. Being a meat hunter and not a trophy hunter I decided to go ahead and take the shot on my first night. This deer was less than 20 yards and provided the perfect broadside shot. After the perfect double lung shot, I had accomplished what I set out to do, and that was harvest a deer with my bow. The properties Red Dog has are some of the best i’ve seen. The tree stands are placed in perfect positions with plenty of shooting lanes trimmed. When I called Tim to tell him I harvested a deer, he was just as excited as I was!! He truly cares about his clients and understands how important it is to help them be successful. The tree stands were all equiped with safety ropes, I forgot my Hunter Safety vest at home and was a little concerned about it. Tim had an extra one back at his lodge and offered it to me, the lodge was top notch as well!! I cant say enough good things about Tim and Red Dog Outfitters. I cant wait to come back!! I booked for 2013 before I even went home from m! y hunt. Thanks again Tim!!
