"This place is one of a kind. Its really hard to explain how great this lodge is. This is my first wingshooting trip ive ever taken and i couldnt dream up a better hunt or a nicer lodge. From the minute we arrived the staff was very accomodating and helped us in any way possible. All the meals were top notch and the hunting even better. If anybody is looking for a place to hunt whether it be a first time or 50th time there is no way you would ever be dissapointed. A++++++++"

"The lodge and staff are outstanding to say the least! Fantastic meals, great people, beautiful lodge, comfortable and spacious guestrooms; I really don't know what would have made our stay better!
I also need to say, this was my first time hunting with GOOD dogs, never understood why anyone would want to own one until now. ;-)
Thanks for a GREAT time guys and gals!

"From the moment you walk into the lodge, you are treated like family. The lodge is real clean. The food is incredible. The entire staff we dealt with were extremely nice and wanted to make you feel at home. This was my second trip to Deer Creek in last 12 months. The hunts are great. If you are looking for upland or duck hunts you need to give Deer Creek a try."

"I have been to Deer Creek and to the Southern Georgia Plantations to hunt and hands down even taking the travel out of the scenario! The one on one personal service delivered by the staff at Deer Creek is what all operations should be measured by! The staff from the Chef, Hostess and Guides and Managers all are a class act. Try it at least once and be the Judge!"
