well you can see how wmi made out. i didn't do as well. i passed on a 140ish tall 8 with a sticker off the back that would have dressed out well over 200 lbs. he just looked to be a little small and 3.5 years. he certainly would have met the outfitters minimum. man they got the deer there and big ones. no scratch that, giant ones. what the head guide has in his game room will make pee yourself and half the mounts were elsewhere. somewhere around 40 mounts. he's shot 2 over 200" and the rest are close behind. save your money up and make the trip. oh and leave your preconceptions about deer at the door. this outfitter works very hard to keep the deer from ever knowing you were on the property so the deer move any time of day.

the food will keep you alive. that's about it, by my standard anyway. the bunk house was fine and the beds nice and firm the way i like it. slept like a babe. they use those Park Model double wide things. washer dryer, clean room for your gear. pool and poker tables but who had time. all 700 stands were hung by the head guide and the owner hung a few. Mike Pavlick is the owner and Randy Grawe is the head guide. Randy is a giant deer killing monster. these guys have had articles written about them in different mags not as outfitters but as giant deer killing machines. wmi knows which ones. well worth the $$. just play their game. after all its their yard and they know their deer. check out their web site Golden Triangle Whitetails. I can recommend the hunt. Keep in mind there are no guarantees its free range and the big deer are smart. can't wait to go back breaking the news to the wife might be a little painful but worth it.

hope making the recommendation and putting the web site up is ok.
