Wanted to drop you a note to supply you with my email address and to thank you for a great experience.
I was truly impressed with every facet of your operation. Your professionalism, attention to detail, and customer focus made every minute of my stay perfect. Your staff is first rate, and their commitment and interpersonal skills reflect the first rate business you strive to maintain.
Bob Parkey has raved about your place for years, but the quality of the hunting and my treatment as a guest still exceeded all my expectations.
Thanks again for a great time. I'll be back.
Greg and Shorty
Dear Greg and Shorty,
I want to take a moment and thank you and your staff for the most amazing hunt that my son Boone and I have ever experienced! When we arrived at the airport, our party was met by your guides who greeted us with not only a great attitude but also enthusiasm.
I have to tell you that we were amazed at the whole operation of the preserve and how the hunts where managed. On the first day of hunting, during the morning hunt, it was so special to me that Boone harvested a whitetail of a lifetime scoring 194 3/8 and I saw every moment of it! For a father to witness his son accomplish such an incredible feat, words can't express what it means to me as well as the memories that I will cherish forever! Then, during my hunt on Saturday afternoon, I managed to harvest a beautiful whitetail scoring 217. Needless to say, these whitetail bucks exceeded our expectations and made lifelong memories for both of us. Life is merely a sum total of our experiences. What an experience we had at Wilderness Whitetails!
Enough can’t be written about your Guides. They were awesome from start to finish. They made everyone in our party feel right at home. Knowledgeable, dedicated, professional, friendly are just a few words that come to mind when describing your Guides. It is hard to find that kind of service.
The accommodations at the lodge were first class and the food was awesome every night. Good food, good fellowship and good friends: what more can you ask for? I think I can speak for the other guys in our party that they had an incredible time as well.
It is without any reservation that I highly recommend Wilderness Whitetails to anyone who wants to harvest that whitetail of a lifetime.
Kindest personal regards,
John R, DMD
Shorty and Greg, we arrived home about 1045, great flight and smooth. As you could probably tell we had a great time. The deer are most impressive, but to us country folks the best part was the people that we met. I understand why you have been successful. As we discussed last night we may consider coming for a velvet hunt, how would we best approach that, can you get back to me when closer? - Jim
Thank you, Shorty, for a fantastic hunt! Great people, great deer and a great time. Looking for to next year.
Shorty and Greg,
This was a picture I had of Jason and Lindsey. I did not know if you had it or not. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate both of you and Jason for making this hunt for my daughter a dream come true. We both had a super time and y'all run a first class operation. All your guides are great I'm sure but thank you for putting Jason with us. The shot Lindsey made was not easy and Jason did a super job talking her thru the shot. He helped her to stay calm after her first shot missed and thankfully the deer turned and gave her a better shot. I know this deer is bigger than what we expected and I am so thankful to both of you for allowing her to take it. She is the talk of the town here and she is so proud. I have sent out numerous responses about wilderness whitetails. Please give Jason my regards again for being such a super guide.
I wanted to send you the attached picture of Charlie's birthday cake. He wanted a cake with the Wilderness Whitetails logo on it (his favorite place). You will also see 4 hunters over to the side. Those represent Charlie both his Grandpa's and me.
The experiences that Charlie has had going to Wilderness Whitetails will last a life time. He was in the blind with his Grandpa Jerry when his Grandpa shot the biggest and last deer in his life. He was at the lodge with his Grandpa John when his Grandpa shot the biggest deer of his life. He was in the blind with me when I shot my biggest deer. Charlie has shot 3 himself with the biggest being 260 inches and he can't wait to get more. He enjoys the hunt but more than that he enjoys the experience that you and your staff provide.
I just want to thank you, Greg, your family and all the guys for making these trips we take up there each year so special. These trips bring me and my son closer to one another. I hope you all can take pride in knowing that what you do means so much to the people that come there.
Good morning. Just wanted to say Thank You very very much for the hunt of a lifetime. In no way, no other place, could any other trip be as great as the one last week. Your family and your staff go above and beyond the duty of making the stay and the hunt unforgettable.
John, Mike, Biggie, and Charlie are probably four of the best at their jobs as anyone in this country. After my family being in the farm equipment business for 46 years, I know and understand the importance of having good help. You and Greg are very lucky to have those guys there so you two can get away and enjoy time away together or with family. Your farm, business, and accommodations are perfect, and the deer are simply amazing.
Thank you again for the hospitality and experience, and I will definitely see you guys again next year.
All I can say is " UNBELIEVABLE". You have to see these deer with your own eyes, they are massive. I contacted Shorty for a hunt a for my father. My dad and I have been hunting together since I have been a little guy. He has taken me out on hunts so I wanted todo something special for him. I asked.my dad what would it take for a buck to be caped and mounted on the wall. He said a 150" would be what he would mount. I surprised him with a hunt at WILDERNESS WHITETAILS. I must say that WILDERNESS WHITETAILS is in its own category. No one any where in the world can compare to them! They are the best people and guides we have ever met. We both got our deer on the first day and they were mire than what we were expecting to shoot. We are both still smiling from ear to ear. We both are booking our hunt for next year already. I want to thank SHORTY, GREGG, JASON, JOE, MIKE AND RANDY for everything they did for us! You guys are great people and helped us with w
hat ever we needed. If anyone wants one of the greatests times of their lives, then book yourself a hunt at WILDERNESS WHITETAILS. You will not be disappointed! My dad and I will never forget this experience. I cant say thank you enough guys. You are one of a kind people too. Thanks again and we will be seeing you next year!
Sincerely, Garey and Dennis

“The hunting experience at Wilderness Whitetails was hands down incredible. Not only do they have phenomenal white-tailed deer, their facilities and guides are outstanding. I recently visited Wilderness Whitetails with my father, husband, brother in law, and father in law. We were all able to enjoy a hunt of a lifetime. The multi-generational hunting experience made it even more memorable and unique. Hunting doesn't get much better than at Wilderness Whitetails. The overall experience was like no other, the food, hospitality, scenery and deer are incomparable.”
"Just a short word to you on my hunt at Wilderness Whitetails. "Incredible". Loved everything about it. The food was great, excellent guides and the snow was a great addition to a Florida boys hunt. Thank you for everything and we are making plans to possibly come back in September of 2015. Again, thank you."
"I have been hunting whitetails for all of my adult life. I have been fortunate enough to have been afforded the opportunities to hunt throughout the southern US. As the majority of my hunting experience was free range and without guide services, I really thought I knew what to expect when I arrived at Wilderness Whitetails. Taking the time to read any material I could find regarding Wilderness Whitetails, really had me believing I knew what to expect. I must say from the moment we arrived at the airport, our expectations were exceeded. Greg and Shorty and their entire staff made sure there was nothing that we wanted. The accommodations, food and friendly atmosphere provided by the guides are first class. John, Mike and Ralph (our guides) worked tirelessly to insure that our hunting experience exceeded our expectations. The comradery of the guides made us feel as though we had been friends for our entire lives. The hunting experience itself far exceeded our expectations. I am confident that I could never match the experience that I was able to have at Wilderness Whitetails. A true dream hunt. See you guys next year!!!!!"
"I have been hunting whitetails for about 30 years but had never been on a guided hunt, so I did not know what to expect. My experience at Wilderness Whitetails totally exceeded anything I could have imagined. The lodging and food were definitely 5 star quality. The guides went above and beyond to find the class and type of racks we were looking for. The owners Greg, Shorty and their mom stopped by the lodge several times daily to ask if there was anything we needed. This is definitely a first class operation and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I will be back!!"
"Thanks again for another incredible hunting adventure at Wilderness Whitetails. Having taken the grand slam of North American sheep and going on uncountable hunts throughout the North American continent I feel that I'm more than qualified to say that Wilderness Whitetails is the best hunting experience of all.
This is truly a whitetail hunting adventure beyond all expectations. Your deer are getting better and older each year. Having taken a 9 and 7 year old the last two seasons I can say without reservation that this was an unequaled experience. These older bucks can be as crafty as any that I have taken, and I have taken a bunch.
Having just returned home, I find myself already dreaming of the next hunting adventure at Wilderness.
Don't change a thing. You're in hunting monster whitetails."
"Thanks for the photos. We want to thank you, Greg, Tom, Curt, John, Mike, Randy, Ralph, your mom and the rest of the staff for making our stay one of the best hunts we have ever been on. The lodge and your property are great, but you and your staff really made our hunt very memorable. Thanks again."
"Thanks for the photos and the information on the Wildlife Gallery. I had a great time and a wonderful hunting experience. Your lodge and property are amazing and your friendly, family-like hospitality and staff make it seem like hunting with friends. I truly enjoyed myself!"
"My group had a great time. Seven hunters and seven incredible deer! My son, dad and I will have memories of this that we will cherish forever. We received five-star treatment as guest but the treatment that you and all the guys provide make us feel like family. You are the premier whitetail hunting destination in the United States. Not only for the unbelievable deer but also because you and your employees go above and beyond on all that you do to make the trip and experience of a lifetime. Thank you Greg and Shorty and let all your guys know that they were all wonderful hosts. We can't wait for next year!"
"Sometimes at other places you almost want to go back to your cabin and get away from people. At Wilderness the guys all came over to our lodge and watched the video of us hunting our deer which means a lot… especially for a 14 year old boy to go there and take a huge whitetail. He's comfortable with the Flee's family. I am sooo satisfied I am coming back again. Great people and great animals."
"Greg and Shorty put on a good hunt...and then to go out and harvest the buck of a lifetime with them, it is just the greatest. With Wilderness Whitetails, it's all about hospitality. It's just unbelievable. I was brought up in the south, where it was all about hospitality. Greg and Shorty put a whole different meaning to the word hospitality. We were served what was considered to be a five-star meal at every sitting. The entire staff at Wilderness Whitetails are down to earth, kind-hearted people"
