Has anyone hunted The Wilderness Pa hunting preserve for Whitetail, and if so, how was it.

I've been there for boar and rams. I have seen his breeder bucks up close and personal. He has some beautiful animals and great place in general. But expect to spend a whole lot of money for a nice buck. You can do fully guided hunts that aren't preserves, for the same price. But hey, if you have the money to spend, and want that monster on the wall, then go for it.

It is a preserve hunt and they are all fish in a barrel
situations, even the bigger ones. Some of the animals act
tame and some run at the first sight of a person. It's a
nice lodge and good staff that work there! If you just want
something different to put on your wall then you may have a
good time with a bow but rifle it would be too easy.
I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

Andy is a heck of a nice guy, Theres nothing wrong with hunting in a pen, thats why them deer are born, to get shot and make happy hunters. That where the one i raise go to.

Great lodge and great people. To be honest I could never pay the $ for a whitetail, but if you have no problem with that then go b/c you will have a great time!

$550 for a European hog (advertised as Russian) that isnt 200 pounds soak and wet is way to much money IMO.

So, don't go. Not a problem with me if you don't.
Most of my money was spent on hunting and fishing. The rest was just wasted.
