Was this your first time hunting with us?  Yes

What did you enjoy the most about your stay?:  I felt that the staff went above and beyond to make my father and I feel welcome. The hospitality was some of the best I have experienced. The food was great.

What was your favorite part of the hunt? Riding the helicopter and shooting the hogs was very cool.

Review:  Don’t hesitate or you will miss the opportunity of a lifetime. There is nothing more liberating than flying above the South Texas countryside in a helicopter. This guide service provides the best and safest hunting opportunities that I have ever experienced. I must say, there is nothing like taking an animal from the air. How many people are a part of that club? Well, I sure am, and I hope you will be soon!

Do you have any comments for our staff, guides, pilot, or chef?  None…I hope the tips were aqppreciated.

Group Leader booking remarks:  The communication with Jill was the best. She returned emails and was helpful.

Review:  If you ever thought about helicopter hog hunting or hunting exotics in Texas… Do it. One of the best trips we have ever taken. By far one of my most favorite hunting experiences.

Do you have any comments for our staff, guides, pilot, or chef?  Again, we have only great things to say about every person we interacted with on our trip. We definitely want to return to Divided Find.

OMG we had a blast!!!! Ended up with 41 between the 4 of us so we were happy.

Spent most of our time there with Jim and he was awesome, even after asking him hundreds of questions all trip long LOL!

Jerry did an awesome job feeding us and meals were delicious.

Carson was an awesome pilot and was plenty helpful.

Dana was also great in helping anyway he could.

Overall, we couldn’t have been more satisfied with how everything went up until our flight home, couldn’t get to Dallas, then out of Dallas, but at that point we didn’t care LOL!

Thanks for all the great service and someday I hope to be back with my son once he’s old enough!!

Discovered the balloon/target practice run in the helicopter at the lodge just because we got there pretty early on arrival day. It worked out for us, but this opportunity should be mentioned during the arrangement time-frame. Perhaps it was, and I missed it, but it all worked out for us. Knowing what I know now, I probably would have been disappointed to have missed it.

The Lodge is really nice. Very well maintained. Liked rocking chairs in the middle of the grounds. Great place to digest a good meal, and top it off with a couple beers.

Meals were great. Mason did an awesome job. I like the attitude of “everything is here, help yourself. If you need help, ask us””. Jerry did the breakfasts, and they were great. Both Jerry and Mason are good guys, and friendly conversationalists..

What was your favorite part of the hunt? Seeing the first group of hogs! We heard the hunters the day before only got one Hog. So when within 10 minutes of start time we seen a herd of 8 and got 7 of them we were on cloud nine. And things only got better.

Review:  Per hour the most expensive hunt I’ve ever bin on AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!! I will be doing this again. Friendly staff, good well maintained equipment. Pilot and ground staff did a great job on orientation for first time helicopter hunters. It was safety first all the way. Great food, clean and comfortable accommodations. The only thing I would change is the time of year. I would go when there was less leaves on the trees and brush. Colby and I had a great time, Thankyou Guy”s

What did you enjoy the most about your stay? Helicopter hog hunting

What was your favorite part of the hunt? Unlike any other hunt!

Review: Really enjoyed our helicopter hog hunt. We thought that this would be a bucket-list item, but after going, we’ll definitely be back! Just went with the 2-hour option but will probably look for 3 or 4 hours next time. Jim is a great guy and fun to hang out with, and Carson did an incredible job piloting the bird!

Do you have any comments for our staff, guides, pilot, or chef? Keep up the good work!

Group Leader booking remarks: Pretty smooth and easy. It’s a little odd navigating the many company names and multiple contacts, but everything worked out fine.

Tim Loucks

What a team you have put together!

Starting with the fun, enthusiastic Amy and ALL the ranch dogs we were greeted warmly by the entire team and the adventure begins!
This was a great gift and on my bucket list for a helicopter hunt for a long time!
Can’t say enough about our Pilot Carson! He not only has a great personality but professional and informative and put us to ease in high winds! He is an ultimate professional and a great asset!
While on the ranch we enjoyed Bass and his fun personality and his education. He was a great guide and bullshitter and an excellent skinner!
Chef Jerry was beyond exceptional in food choices and presentation and personality as well.
We enjoyed the entire team, the management and ease of our stay! We definitely want to come back for another Heli Hunt and to hunt your other locations as well!

Bass is a really good guy! We had fun on the predator hunt with him and got good advice from him. He was very patient with my son and I during the predator hunt as well.

Dylan Is a superb pilot and a excellent hunting guide. He got us on the hogs and chased him into a position where we are able to shoot him. He is a very friendly pilot with great advice. It was a joy getting to meet both he and bass and Dana.

Quality of the hunt: 9

The helicopter hunting was fantastic! My son and I had a blast. We got 27 hogs which was what I had hoped for.. Paragraph the predator hunt was a bust. We shot no predators or even saw any predators. This is likely related to the time of year. We did have fun with Dylan and bass during the hunt and bass was nice enough to shoot to rattlesnakes to keep us safe.

Additional comments:

I have access to two ranches one in Colorado and one in northern New Mexico to shoot prairie dogs. We also have the opportunity to hunt elk in Colorado.
