I haven’t been for a couple of years and man do I miss it. Danny is fantastic, he helped me get my first and second deer as a new hunter. He taught me a lot. This is the real deal, a slice of paradise and Danny is a fantastic guy. If you can book a spot and get down there, look after the place and give it care and respect. We are all so lucky to have places like this. Thanks Danny.

Arrived on a cold day, to a warm cabin and our trip was excellent despite the inclement weather, Danny is a good guide and makes sure every body in the party gets the true bush experience suiting their capabilities, My wife says that this was the best trip I have taken her on. Thank you for a memorable trip.

Heck where do I start, being met by the host with the fire going and a hot cuppa brilliant start. The knowledge of the bush, hunting and the local history was mind blowing. The scenery was second to none, and then to bag a couple of deer and have it dressed up "priceless" Cheers Danny your are a legend.....
