    Been visiting Vern’s for a few years now would recommend to all who are after a real west coast hunting experience. Provided you don’t sit in the hut expecting them to walk up onto the deck theres Plenty of animals around, last time I visited we got three animals in three hours never had a problem and always had a great time.

    Had an amazing time here with my partner. Filled the freezer and caught some very nice trout. The Hut is well situated to relax after a day hunting and fishing with amazing views up the valley. Plenty of deer seen only shot one as all we needed but could have easily shot a lot more. Highly recommended easy hunting country. Will be back 100%
