Deer Hunting

Question asked on Facebook:  What is the success rate at your facility?
Reply from Brian Gore: 2014 hunter at Butler Farms
The success rate for a free range, wild deer, and bow hunt is a hard question to answer.  The answer to that question really depends on the hunter with these kinds of hunts.  What is your success rate at killing a wild mature whitetail for your area in a five day hunt?  If that number is really high, then it will be high at Butler Farms.  I have hunted there at Butlers Farms for I think, 3 years now and they have the giants that Illinois is known for.  I know I can hunt a whole season here in Louisiana and not see the number of big bucks I see in the 5 days I’m there.
Because of the number of bucks I have seen has me with tag soup the last three years, as far as horns go, because I know and have personally seen the quality of bucks which has me holding out for the giant I have seen and want.  With only one buck tag and five days to hunt the ‘success rate” is in the eye of the beholder.  If one is to base his/her hunt location on the success rate of the outfitter, I would suggest a high fence or someplace that costs a lot money with thousands of acres and a guide.  The cost and price at Butler Farms are reasonable, the lodge is top notch and the hospitality is outstanding, The really cool thing  is-you have to scout, learn, find your own tree, hang your own stands, and outsmart the buck yourself.  To me that is what makes a hunt, a hunt.  You should try Butler Farms.


Question asked on Facebook:  How many total acres can be hunted?  How many hunters each year?
Reply from Brian Gore:  2014 hunter at Butler Farms
I have no idea of how many hunters Butler’s have per year.  However, what I can tell you is the hunters they have must be true hunters and true outdoors men.  I can say this because I have hunted several of their farms and have never, ever, seen any trash left from previous hunters, flagging left on any tree-from marking stand locations or any deer dead that were shot and not retrieved or where ground shrinkage changed someone’s mind or ownership. This says a lot to me.  I have hunted other farms in the past where all the above was observed/noted.
Please know that I am not promoted, paid, or affiliated by or for Butler Farms.  I am a paying hunter from Louisiana looking for a giant that I can hunt, kill and proudly hang on my wall with satisfaction that I outsmarted him.
