Brian Helmer must be one of the last true boy scouts. I booked a hunt with him on his property he only charges $125 per day however unlike any other canned hunts I have been on he gives you free run of the place for 24 hours and he has many stands to choose from.
So me being a novice at hunting he showed me around the place and provided me with a wealth of knowledge. after waking me around for hours of tracking animals and engaging conversation he was so determined to have me get my prize and because I simply could not walk any further he was kind enough loan me a 4 wheeler to ride. He spent so much time teaching me about tracking animals from game trails to scrapings on the trees tracks in the fresh mud, he even showed me signs of a sow bedding down.
I had the best adventure of my hunting career!! Other outfitters simple drop you off in a stand a wish you luck. Not Brian you get a mini safari with him. He even said I could shoot a cull deer if I wanted. I know he was just doing his job but I feel like I hooked up with a friend I have not seen in years. In the end I did not get an animal although there where tracks every were. an I did see lots of deer. I did give him $240 the $125 for the hunt plus a generous tip he tried to give me my money back but I would not have it. To me I got off pretty cheap for that adventure and wonderful host. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good time. To me people are too wrapped up in the kill and forget about the adventure.
here is some of the video I got on the trip. If your wondering why I did not take the doe when she stepped out a fawn followed her.
