Reviewer Comments: It was a very dry year and the dogs had trouble getting on the quail. Though we did average 10 - 12 coveys a day, the coveys tended to be small with a few exceptions. They could have used a few more dogs as the warm, dry weather resulted in wearing out the dogs early. The main lodge was undergoing renovation so we stayed in a mobile home, which was comfortable, but not luxurious. Roseann is a gourmet cook! Lunch and dinner were incredible. Given a little more moisture, I believe both the quail population and the ability of the dogs to pick up the scent will improve, though this was not a bad hunt at all. Ken, Roseann, and the rest of the people were good to be around. They work hard for you.

Reviewer Comments: I’ve hunted with All American Outfitter for over 7 years. During this period, my wife and I have hunted dove, quail, turkey, hogs, and of course deer (white-tail and mule deer). Although the bird and hog hunts are exceptionally good, the focus of this review is on their deer hunts. I hunt in multiple states (Midwest, and western states for various big game species), but when it comes to deer, I consider my hunts with AA Outfitter the highlight of my season. In a nut shell, this outfitter provides: a variety of quality properties, reliable scouting data, honest & knowledgeable guides, exceptional trophy potential and excellent lodging/meals – not to mention their warm hospitality and the 5 star meals! My experience with this outfitter has been very good - and my hunts have been successful. With the exception of shooting opportunities that we chose to pass up (holding out for larger trophies) my wife and I have harvested deer ranging from around 130 class to 150 (green) for white-tail and 26”+ mule deer with this outfitter. Last season (Nov 2005) I harvested a unique rack with forked brow-tines. In my experience the racks in this area are generally symmetrical with long tines and most have very good mass. I have had the opportunity to hunt from ‘box blinds’, as well as some very exciting ‘spot & stalk’ opportunities. The owners of this operation are themselves avid hunters and committed to conserving their natural resources/environment. All American Outfitter is a ‘class act’ and I highly recommend them.

Reviewer Comments: The owner is experienced and his wife and her helper "cookie" are wonderful people. Unfortunately the hunt didn't rate that well. The holdings / Land Leases can not support a resident deer herd and therefore the hunter is reliant on transient bucks. Our group seen about one or two does to each blind location but not consistently. In my opinion the outfitter can't handle more clients than the four he had and at that the stands won't produce well in this early phase of the season. The deer were hot on green fields and the outfitter only had about ten acres in the processes that had not been cleared and fully grown in before he started hunting it. One stand location had promise as who ever was lucky enough to hunt it seen and mule deer and whitetails but that land was off limits. The only single deer taken our week and the previous week were deer using the corridor to "that" green field. The outfitter claims the deer are hot for corn during the cold weather but our week seen temps in the 80's. Obviously he can't control the weather but even so it's still mostly transient bucks he's seeing not his resident core herd. If you know your land then you should make preparations for improvements if you are to be an outfitter, that's what someone pays you for. During the rut may be a better time to book but fat chance getting the slot. In in our camp four hunters on a four day hunt seen two "legal" bucks (western 4 count). One was harvested and the other is the "one that got away" story. It was great fun to hunt that single buck on that one day but when you pay good money and get one or two good mornings out of it, it is a great dissapointment. The sleeping quarters were infested with wasps and the smoke bomb smell choked you for four days. We dodged wasps while sitting in the living room each night. The guide/assistant is a great kid", 20 year old going to college, but never scouted the property except giving track counts while filling feeders. On his own account he never seen a buck at any of the the stand sites and claimed he only seen deer on ocassion at most sites. Looking back,,I requested as close to the rut as possible and booked in February the previous year but it couldn't be accomodated (I'm only one hunter). When I arrive I find that the following week would have been much more close to the rut and they only had a single client coming that week. I had requested a move on two previous occasions before the hunt to a different time slot but they never seemed to have the space.(not to mention for some reason I payed about $250 more than an another single hunter who booked after me) The web site is great but when doing your homework and calculating % of success (that's why you pay to go hunting instead of staying home) from previous years you find the web is showing last years kill but in fact is a highlight of good bucks from as far back as 1999. The lodge mounts weren't taken there so when you go in don't get so excited. The quail and turkey are outstanding there, try that instead. The math equals= out of rut hunt / poor chance at success. Hype to perspective clients instead of success focused effort gets reviews like this.

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.

Kansas Hunting Information

Kansas is one of the top producing monster whitetail buck states in the country. It also has some excellent turkey hunting and a few big mule deer in the western part of the state. Kansas has an excellent reputation as a top notch destination for upland birds. It has excellent populations of pheasant and quail due to the vast expanse of suitable prairie and grassland type habitat.
