"I had never hunted before and my brother invited me to join him on a trip to Deer Creek Lodge. Our guide was fantastic and we were able to see plenty of quail, ducks, and pheasants. I felt extremely comfortable and was able to bag quite a few birds.
As for the food and other various amenities they were all wonderful....the food was especially notable. I hope to come back again soon."

"Deer Creek has consistently impressed me with their hunts, lodging, meals, and most of all the professional staff. From the moment you arrive you are treated not only as a client, but as a friend.
In the field you will get plenty of opportunities at birds and get to hone your shooting style as pheasant, quail, and chukar are flushed by the provided dogs.
I could not recommend Deer Creek Lodge enough to anyone wanting to have a top notch no limit upland shoot."
