Hunters roost and Lodge-John Bostic

First of all, this was my first trip to Illinois. There was serveral things that really bothered me, but the one thing that really stood out was the fact that John and two of his guides were hunting when we were. One evening John came in and was really upset, he stated that he had a shot opportunity at a 160 class deer but had a misfire. One of the hunters that i was hunting with was on his third hunt with John and i could not understand why he was not put in a position to harvest such an trophy. They should have been focused on paid clients, but instead were trying to make a name for themselves.

Overall Impression: excellent

Reviewer Comments: Had bad weather and still saw a lot of deer. I killed a nice buck and then filled my doe tag. John has lived and hunted in the area his whole life and is very knowledgeable about the deer and works very hard to give you a chance at the buck of a lifetime. It's a hands on operation and John and his wife Judy treat you like family and you won't eat better anywhere. I plan on going back as long as they will have me.
