  53. If I was lucky enough to win I would take my 76 year old dad who taught me how to hunt on a hunt of a lifetime. Thanks for the chance to win.

  54. It’s a fantastic idea of giving away a hunt like this. If I win something like this I would like to take my father on this hunt. He retired this past year and this would be a bucket list hunt for the old man. He is not able to hunt as hard as he use to, so it’s tough to get him back where we hunt in ANF. Our whole lives have been National Forest hunting. Beautiful place to hunt but hard on the knees at his age. My brother and I would love to see him with a wallhanger in his life time. Either way it’s nice to see an outfitter give away hunts like this. Cheers

  55. I’d give a limb to win this hunt for my fiance and his dad. His dad is getting older and hunting in Louisiana at our lease is becoming tiresome for him. It is a very rugged terrain and having only a little piece of land amongst tens of thousands of acres makes it very difficult to harvest. It becomes quite frustrating when you go weeks and months without even seeing a deer, unfortunately most are nocturnal by the time season rolls around. My fiance was raised hunting by his dad, it is a passion they share. As his dad gets older he worries that he will get out of the sport. I wish so badly to win this hunt so that they could have an amazing opportunity to find that thrill again, together.

  56. I would love to win this hunt for my dad and myself I don’t know a guy that is more deserving for a hunt like this he has always put others before himself and always getting youth involved in hunting. The older I get we don’t get to hunt as often together as I would like to due to work. I believe this would be the hunt of a lifetime for us both!!

  57. I hope I win. Im only 13 years old. If I win i want to take my grandpa.I love deer hunting. I have killed three does bout never a buck.If i win i hope i kill a buck.I will hunt with my 30-6 or my bow or a mussle loader.

  58. I watch y’all’s hunting shows every year I would love to win and bring my son I’d be so happy thanks. and God bless

  59. I put my husband in for the free hunt him and my son both love to be in the outdoors doing something all the….my husband is a correctional officer and he works really hard to keep us all safe and i would love to see him win this trip just to show that i really love him and he is just not a hero that i forgotten about

  60. Thanks for the opportunity to make a dream of an old man come true and may god bless you all for making someone’s dreams come true if not my!!

  61. I could comment a lot about my last 67 years of life health,loss of family,job in LE. I know we all go thur these things but most of it we can’t change. Its the road of life. I’m truly blessed for each day of life that our creator has given us and these wonderful animals that we hunt and the lands they live.

  65. I have experienced the awesome hunts in Pike and Calhoun counties over the years. 3 children later as tiime has slowed for major hunting trips this would be a phenomenal hunt to take my 10 year old son on just for the experience. He has heard so many stories of this promised hunting land over the years. I would love to share a special hunt if won with the most important person in my life, my one and only son.

  66. I enjoyed seeing the deer that were taken. My sons and I never seem to have enough time to hunt, fish or trap. They are always on the go and dad time seems to be slipping away. I knew this time would come some day , just not this soon. This hunt would be a great chance to steal back a little time. Thanks for the chance.

  69. It’s truly amazing that your company and employees are giving away a free hunt for a chance at a once in a lifetime booner. I know a lot of time and effort gets put into what you guys do and and to give a free opportunity for a lucky hunter is what this sport is about. More outfitters need to follow this great idea and change somebody’s hunting career. Good luck to everyone and may the winner shoot straight and harvest a true Illinois giant!!!!
