Double D Wildlife ranch ky

We booked this hunt based on references and trail cam/kill pictures. Nothing was delivered as we were told over the phone when David took us to the cleaners. He is full of crap. All the deer come out of a high fence and you are welcome to upgrade when you are unsuccessful if you want for an additional 2500.00. The lodge is over booked and crowded as well as nasty. He wants you to be part of his poker family! People coming to eat at dinner time that are not paying hunters. This guy is a joke as well as his guide "Frank from ny" what an asshole he was! I would give up hunting before I wpild ever go back there! Beware, it's a con.

What a joke

i booked a bow hunt with David Donaldson last year and he seemed to be a good ole farm boy over the phone. When I showed up, he was there to take my balance owed. Then I only seen him at dinner time. I was at the mercy of Frank, his guide which considering he was dealing with 15 hunters, did an ok job to be spread so thin. One of the hunters in camp told me at one time they had a great hunting camp but "things have changed" he said he keeps coming back because he has a yearly "deal" that he can't get anywhere else! I guess if you are on the buddy list, it's a great thing! I would never go back there.

Reviewer Comments: I have hunted with Double D Wildlife Ranch 4 years and have taken 3 nice bucks. My sons have taken bucks also. They have several thousand acres of hunting ground. Mostly crop and woods. This past year, David and Chad set up a tripod stand for me over looking a cut corn field and a crp field. It was slow at first because the weather wasn't great for November. 70 degrees the first 2 days and the 3rd day a front moved in and it cooled off extremely. I harvested a 146 inch 8pt chasing a doe. It has 14 inch g2s. I was real happy with this deer and plan on hunting with David and Chad this year also. Feel free to call or email me anytime for a reference!

Reviewer Comments: I booked a bow hunt with Chad Faulkner at Double D Ranch last year and I was actually concerned because it was the last of Oct. first few days of Nov. This was a full moon! He told me that deer usually move good that week anyway because it's "pre-rut" Boy was he ever right! The moon didn't effect the deer movement that I could tell. They were everywhere. These guys have a lot of good property. There were 11 guys in camp that week and 5 bucks taken. I shot a 128 class 8 point. There were 2 10 point bucks taken and 2 other 8 points. The largest was in the high 140's. There were deer seen in the 150's-170's but none were taken. I have hunted with several outfitters over the years and these guys at Double D rank in the top! I'm planning another trip this year with Double D. Thanks Guys!

Overall Impression: Best Turkey Hunting Out There

Reviewer Comments: We had a group of 6 that hunted with David and Chad and everyone had a blast. Everyone had a opportunity to harvest a bird and most of us limited out. 4 out of our group had never harvested a bird and the guides worked till the hunters got the job done. Also, fishing was great as well and David smoked a Boston butt for us that I can still taste. This place is the best deal out there by far and I have never been treated as good as they as they treated us. I will book again for next year and everyone else at the camp said the same. You have plenty of room to yourself and the birds are not over hunted.

Reviewer Comments: Booked a 5-day hunt in Nebo, Ky for Sept. 8-12, 2007. Very hot (highs around 90 everyday). It rained the first two days I hunted nearly non-stop, but still saw deer. By the third morning, September 10, the front had moved out and it was no longer raining. After being in the stand only about fifteen minutes, a group of bucks walked up, one of which was a 130 inch 10 point, which I harvested. Only negative was that the owner was the only guide, so had there been more than just myself and one other guy hunting, finding deer and getting to and from deer stands could have potentially been a bit of a struggle. I didn't see that many deer, but considering the weather conditions, who can really complain. Overall, good hunt and just a great place to get away whether you bring a trophy home or not.

Reviewer Comments: David and Chad are two peas in a pod. I had a hell of a time. It was everything and more than I expected. Chad made sure we were taken care of. I took a nice 9pt. I am looking forward to hunting there in 2008.

Reviewer Comments: I have hunted at Double D Ranch for two years and both years I was very pleased with my hunt. This past hunt was the best hunt that I have ever been on. The owner David Donaldson, and guide Chad Faulkner, put me on the biggest buck that I have ever taken. They both had spotted this deer several times and after 4 days on the stand he emerged from the woods into a cut corn field chasing a doe. I was lucky enough to get a shot off and dropped him in his tracks. It was a 10 pointer with a 24 inch inside spread that scored 143.

Alberta Hunting Information

Alberta is a large, diverse province with rolling prairies, farmland, river bottoms, Boreal forests, and large expanses of the northern Rocky Mountains. Many species of big game, waterfowl, upland game and predators inhabit Alberta. Long known for monster whitetails, Alberta also is home to big mule deer, pronghorn antelope, elk, black bear, cougar, Canada moose, and bighorn sheep. In fact, 7 of the 10 largest bighorn sheep in Boone and Crockett record book are from Alberta. In addition to big game, Alberta offers some top notch bird hunting. Serious waterfowlers know about the large flocks of ducks and geese that call Alberta home or migrate through.

Manitoba Hunting Information

Manitoba is known as a top destination for avid waterfowl hunters. Huge flocks of ducks and geese can be found from the Arctic coast of Hudson Bay to the prairie potholes on the southern border of this Canadian province. There is no legal requirement for non-resident waterfowl hunters to use a guide, but many are available and a high percentage of non-Canadian hunters utilize them. In addition black bear, Canada moose and whitetails are hunted throughout the province.

New Mexico Hunting Information

New Mexico is one of the top destinations for trophy Elk and Antelope hunting. Draw odds can be tough depending on the unit but landowner tags are also available for those who don't draw. Mule Deer are plentiful but generally of average size. Only a couple of units and reservations consistently produce big muleys.
