Snipe Creek Lodge Kentucky Deer Hunt Reviews 

To the Snipe Creek Hunters:
Thank you guys/gals so much for the many beautiful thank you notes related to your Kentucky Deer Hunt at Snipe Creek Lodge.

The many expressions of gratitude is a beautiful reward for the constant 12 months of work, thoughts, effort and the insane amount of experience/stand hours that goes into every Ky. whitetail hunt offered.

A lot of you were rewarded with a magnificent Ky. whitetail. A lot more of you missed the chance/shot on the Ky. Big Buck. That is universal, don't feel too bad.

Most all of you were rewarded with much more:
1) Knowledge that will minimize stand mistakes which will enhance all your future hunts.
2) Food plot "secrets" that will certainly enhance your future whitetail hunting.
3) Lifelong memories with your Dad, son, buddies, wife, husband, etc.

Thanks so much!

Let me just start off by saying WOW!!!!  What a trip words cant describe what an experience I had at Snipe Creek Lodge.  Seeing over 55 deer more bucks than doe's having a world class 160 inch ten point eat beans in a soybean field in front of you at 200 yards and no need for binoculars to see every point on his head.  Following that up with at least two more bucks going in the high 130's to low 140's.  It's just magical getting to a place with complete strangers and walking away with some new awesome friends.  Carl took me in as soon as i got there.  Getting to help out see and listen to how we where gonna hunt it just was an awesome experience from day one.  The guides the food everything you could imagine was top notch.  I felt as if i was at my home away from home.  Every serious bow hunter knows that getting a big mature in range is hard and following up with the shot is even harder, but let me tell you Carl's staff and himself do whatever is possible to make the magic happen.  Even though i didn't walk away with a trophy deer I walked away with an experience of a lifetime and a whole lot better knowledge of hunting whitetails and some of the best guys i have had the privilege of knowing.  I could go on and on about Snipe Creek Lodge and how its the best out there but do all of yourselves a favor and check it out in person.  I promise you want go wrong I can definitely say with out a doubt that i will be back to experience one of the best trips that i have ever been on and just to hang out with all of the crew again.

Carl Doron's Snipe Creek Lodge is a White Tail hunters best kept secret. A Fall 2011 edition of BowHunting Magazine voted Kentucky to be the Number 1 state when it comes to White Tail Hunting. I have spent a lot of money and time traveling thousands of miles, hunting places like North Texas, all over Oklahoma, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida, and Kentucky. I recently discovered that all along I've had the perfect place 4.5 hours away in Western Kentucky called Snipe Creek Lodge. The knowledge and expertise that Carl has with hunting White Tail, and specifically Kentucky White Tail, is unbelievable. Western Kentucky is a very hard place to hunt with all the habitat, however, Carl has done so much leg work he truly has manipulated and patterned the deer. All I can say is listen to Carl, sit back, relax, and make a good shot.

My son and I just returned from a hunt in Kentucky with Snipe Creek Outfitters We chose wisely- we hunted with one of the "good"ones. Carl Doron runs this operation in a beautiful setting in an area called Land Between the Lakes. A true fair chase whitetail hunt with an organized outfitter that tells the absolute truth about his property, hunting conditions, what to expect. and opportunities that will be availble. Carl and his staff want you to be successful. He takes a great deal fof pride in his knowledge of the area and movement of deer. After much research, phone calls etc We chose this outfitter simply because we felt we could trust him. He proved us right. I would recommend him in a heartbeat and he stands head and shoulders over some of the past outfitters we have hunted with. Remember, Carl will offer you a reasonable opportunity to take a trophy whitetail-that is all an honest outfitter can do. Run as fast as you can from those that guarantee you a kill. This is fair chase hunting at its best! Yes, we will be back and no we did not harvest an animal-Carl put us in position but we made some rookie mistakes happens-even if you have been at this for 35 years!

Carl, first of all I wanted to take a moment to thank you for a great time at snipe creek. I had a great hunt but most of all I had great fellowship with my brother and friends. Brad is a top notch guide and a great person. I know you put a tremendous amount of time, money and effort into these grounds and hunts.
Again, thanks for a great hunt and a great time. Your a first class operation and I will be back. Clint and I are gonna put together a good group of guys for next years powder hunt. If you get a chance could you email me some of those pictures you took of my deer? I would be very thankful if you could.

Just wanted to say thank you for the gracious hospitality you and everyone showed me at the hunting property. Although I didn't come away with a deer this year The experience was very gratifying to say the least. Your attention to detail and the work that you have put into each of the properties is evident and was always like "Christmas morning"  once the sun came up on where I was to hunt for that day. I would also like to give a special thank you to Eddie, Brad, Logan, and of course To Dennis (coach) and Claire for all the work they did on each of the deliveries and pickups and the delicious food to come back to each and every night. Eddie and the others were always positive and gave feed back each and every time the brought me to the hunting location. I look forward to next year and will be counting the days till next seasons hunt with you and your staff. Thank you again for everything I see why your business is growing and why you have as many repeat customers as you do. Keep up the good work!!

Carl, I really wanted to get back to you sooner but work was waiting for me when I returned from my hunt.  Ever since I returned the primary topic of conversation to everyone I come in contact with is my experience regarding my trip to Snipe Creek Outfitters.  I want to express my sincere appreciation and thanks to you, my guide and the wonderful ladies who provided a warm and welcoming experience in providing the lodging and meals.  The accommodations were great as well as the entire hunting experience.  If you remember I came out by myself and really appreciated the warm welcome and feeling of an at home experience throughout the entire hunt.  Services and accommodations were first class and I assure you that you will be hearing from me shortly to schedule a 2012 hunt with my sons and also some friends that I have referred to your site and have generated a lot of excitement.  Ultimately I want to thank you for your patience in answering all my questions leading up to the hunt and again I want you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.  Wishing you, your family and all your staff a wonderful and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hi Carl,
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my hunt at Snipe Creek Lodge. All the guys were great and everything you told me about hunting with Snipe Creek Lodge was true. You guys put a lot of time and commitment into making sure your hunters have a great experience and the best opportunity to harvest a great buck. Brad was my guide and what a great guy to spend time with. He put me on a good buck the first day and than allowed me to tag along with him trapping for Bob Cats, Coyotes, Beaver, Otter. What a great experience that was. I would encourage anyone who would like to learn how to trap to contact Brad and learn the art of trapping. I look forward to returning next year. Thanks again for the great experience.

I want to thank you for being such a wonderful host this past week. Our entire group thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at your camp. You made the trip a memorable experience for Travis, Alex and I as well as the rest of the gang. We left feeling as though we had made new friends. I want to extend our invitation to you if you ever find yourself in our neck of the woods to please cone and visit and stay with us.

The entire group was very fun, friendly and made it a great time for all. That is what I really look for in a hunting trip. This is a time I use to build memories with my sons, and that made this a successful trip regardless of the number of deer we brought home. The boys really enjoyed visiting your shop. They talked about it on the trip home.

Thank you again,
Louie Dean

Just wanted to let you know out of all the lodges I have been to I have never seen a more structured hunting plan that you produce all year long. The hunts are very beautiful and if a man wants to see deer you have got the place for it, I've never seen a herd of deer until I came to Snipe Creek! 20 deer at one time all on you, thats a lot of deer. Your guides are very experienced and also know the land very well. Your lodge, your guides, your food, your hunting places...Is #1 in my book and I will be back in 2010. Thanks, Timmy Lanham.

I just wanted to thank everyone for their hospitality! Jason was great he MADE THE HUNT ENJOYABLE. He took time in explaining the hunt to us and what I like the most he was giving us tips on how to be better hunters when we got back to Georgia.

After my last morning hunt he took the time to show me some actual examples of different sets in the woods. Some of them were just like back at home and I had my stands in the wrong locations. In fact, I am going to try some of his suggestions on set ups for the last week of December.

Hey Carl,

If you have an email for them please send it to me. I just wanted also to thank you for the wonderful hunting experience I had during the black powder season. Even though I wasn't able to harvest a Big Buck, the whole trip was great. You have a top notch operation and I look forward to booking a  trip in the future. And I am really looking forward to possibly be able to help you guide in the future. I will keep in touch.

Hi Carl,
Was thinking a lot about you but wanted to let things calm down some for you before I emailed. I am sure I can speak for the rest of the Michigan guys and say that we had an AMAZING time at Snipe Creek Lodge. You sure made us feel at home and provided a GREAT hunting experience for us. Your slogan "Expect to be Impressed" is right on the money!! Can't thank you enough for the "SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY". Hope you and your family had a nice thanksgivin! That's if you could sit still long enough!! :-) When you have a chance, can you please email me the other pics you took of me and Nick? I would greatly appreciate it. Saw my daughter get her first deer (doe). I think I was happier than she was. Hope she continues to hunt. Say hi to Chip, Luke and Jim when you see them.

Hey Carl,
just wanted to say thanks for the great time my brother and I had at your place. It is truly a whitetail paradise. You can tell that a lot of care is taken to set up each hunt. The camp was amazing and Jason was an awesome guide. I look forward to seeing you guys next fall.

Just wanted to drop a quick email to say thank you. My wife and I had a wonderful time, and you have quite the remarkable whitetail hunting operation. I wish I could have experienced the exhilaration of the kill, but none-the-less had a wonderful time witnessing the large bucks of Kentucky. I checked the website and saw the wonderful photos of the two bucks taken during our hunt. They are truly two magnificent animals. I spoke with my father and he wont be able to do a trip this year, but I would love to come back down, but I am not sure whether I will be able to afford it or not (with the baby on the way ya'know). I will try to figure something out, but I am not sure. We will have to talk.

Thank you again!

Hello Mr. Doron,
My name is Fernando Santiago, I've been looking for a place to hunt for the last few months, while browsing several websites I stumbled onto yours. I just wanted to commend you on the most down to earth, realistic, no bs website I have viewed. I'm very excited to get out there and lord willing, if all goes well here I should be calling you regarding a deposit sometime in November for next years season, thanks again for putting together something REAL.

Just want to let you know that Mike and myself had a great hunt with you. We appreciate the way your guides Bucky and Jason took the time to ensure all our needs were met and then some. For the hospitality you and your wife showed, not only to us but all those who were in camp. We really appreciate the extra day given to us it shows why you have a successful business. Mike and I will be planning a hunt with you in 2011. For in Sept. of 2010 Mike's son is getting married and my daughter in Nov of the same year. Things will be a little tight for both of us.

So thanks again for all,

Hey Carl!
How is it going? Just wanted to say "thank you!" Had a great time in camp and hunting. Everyone up there treated me as if I were family. As if I had lived up there all of my life. The hunts were great.

Tell all the guides I said "thanks". I will be back up there I can promise you that. Damn, I already miss Ann's cooking! And your enthusiasm kept me pumped. I just wish I could have stayed at least till Saturday! Tell everyone sorry I could not say Good bye and for leaving in short notice.

Thanks again Carl, you are one hell of a guy, and look forward to hunting some more with you in the future. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you again, I had a damn good time and please tell everyone I said THANK YOU again.
