Well--where to start??? I am very new to hunting and need "lots" of help and guidance (aka PATIENTS) when taking me out...lol
I hooked up on a very short notice hunt outside Sonora, TX for 3 days with Mike and his team....It was set up as 1 guide and me for the 3 days to hunt Axis Does.....There were about 5 other individuals there for Bucks as well. Four of the 5 got their kills by the early part of the second day. Having not seen any Axis Does during that period, Mike put all available guides with the 2 of us to help stalk and push Does to us, luck for the 5th person (still missed my opportunity).
That is where I have to really give credit to the full compliment of Mike's Team....the second half of the second day I personally had all 3 guides AND Mike take me out alone. STILL --NADA But they would not give up in helping me find my opportunity. They made it a point to get up early (all of them) and take me out on my last morning, they spent so much time to help and get me in the back locations (areas that were very obviously not typically seen) to try and improve my chances....IT WORKED (the chance that is). They got me 3 different opportunities, my lack of experience, THEIR patients, helped me to learn things I had not known and improved at each of the 3 opportunities and understand my MISS...The hunt was supposed to end after the morning events, BUT again, their strong desire for me to be successful, offered to take me on a late afternoon, early evening hunt if I wanted to do so--having a long drive ahead of me (I drove just over 9 hrs for the hunt--from Arizona), I turned the offer down--but just the fact they offered is outstanding.
Let me just leave with this...THANKS MIKE AND THE TEAM!!! I had a fantastic time over the 3-days and, in Arnold's famous words, I'll be back!!
