"I hunted at a different deer ranch and from the moment we got there it was clear that it was all about the dollar. Too commercial! At Greg and Shorty's it's no different than going to your own hunting camp where you have a say in what happens. The other place was miserable. We wanted to leave early but couldn't get a flight out. It was the worse hunt I have ever been on"
"As an outdoor writer, I've taken a lot of deer at high fence ranches. Wilderness Whitetails is the only one I ever "hunted" The terrain makes hunting difficult and the deer are far from the park-like animals I've seen at other facilities. In fact, I consider myself lucky that I took a deer at Wilderness Whitetails as not all that visit do so. Wilderness Whitetails is fair-chase hunting behind a fence."
“A childhood friend of mine, who is now a cardiologist, is a very avid hunter, as am I. We have been hunting together since we were kids. My friend went to the Safari Club show, where he met Greg and Shorty Flees of Wilderness Whitetails. When he came back he said, "I think I have found a home run!" He told me about Wilderness Whitetails and all of the work and knowledge these guys had put into the Whitetail hunting industry.
"Having heard of the Flees name, I told him to book us a hunt. The Flees reputation has all been understated. From my first hunt with the Flees family, it has been nothing but the upmost of memorable experiences. Last year I had the privilege and pleasure, with my friend to take our families on a vacation-hunting trip during Thanksgiving weekend. My daughter killed the dream buck of her lifetime. My son killed the buck of his lifetime. My friend and his entire family, his son-in-law and I all bagged trophy Whitetails. So to describe my Wilderness Whitetails experience -- it was not only a memorable experience, it was definitely the hunt of my lifetime. I do not see how there could be anything better.”
“I took both my boys with me and one of their buddies. Wilderness Whitetails is a first class operation! I don’t even look other places anymore because I have such a great relationship with Greg and Shorty that I have no interest going anywhere else. Sure there are cheaper hunts out there but you get what you pay for. We shot five deer this year. We all got the one we wanted...including three typicals and two non-typicals. My son shot the biggest one with his bow...274” with a bow!
"The hospitality at Wilderness is just awesome! They are family orientated so you feel totally at home. The food is fabulous. The people are awesome...Shorty and Greg, their Mom, Carol, the guides. It’s real hunting. We hunt the weekends. We hunted all weekend right up to the end of the last day."
"Greg and Shorty are very very professional...but down to earth. They are always responsive to any questions. There is no substitute for experience. There are always big hugs from all of them. They make you feel comfortable from Carol to Greg to Shorty.”
"I highly recommend Wilderness Whitetails to any serious Whitetail hunter. It’s a first class experience from every viewpoint. Whether it is the great accommodations and great food or the gorgeous property itself. The deer are beyond belief! It is ‘Whitetail Heaven’ with the perfect Whitetail environment that makes this a challenging hunt for that special dream Whitetail."
"With a little patience a hunter has the opportunity to harvest that once in a lifetime buck. The buck I took is the largest I have taken in over 30 years of hunting the elusive Whitetail. I will make it back!"
"Everyone knows that Wilderness Whitetails is absolutely the premier whitetail hunting destination in the world. What most people don’t know is how meticulous the Flees brothers, Carol and all the guides are about ensuring an unrivaled family outdoor hunting experience. Having a family run operation that not only promotes the family experience, but lives it, separates Wilderness Whitetails from all the rest."
"My son and I have been hunting together at Wilderness Whitetails for the last 5 years since he was 7 year old. I knew I had found our lifelong deer hunting camp when my son wrote his 2nd grade “favorite memory” paper about our trip to Wilderness Whitetails and the people he met and his hunting experience. That paper sits in our hunting photo album with more pride than any trophy I’ve ever taken. Since then, he speaks of all the guides, Greg, Shorty and Carol as if they were his own family"
"Another unbelievable hunt and incredible time! Thanks Greg and Shorty for continuing to put me on the biggest deer I’ve ever seen. There is nowhere else in the world I’d rather hunt and I can’t wait from my son and I to come back next year and experience the ultimate in whitetail hunting that the country has to offer. Everything about the hunt is a league of it’s own."
“The best whitetail hunting anywhere in the world. You have to experience it to believe it.”
