Hey Guys,
I have hunted out of High Plains Drift Inn since ’06, with warm beds, hot showers and home cooked meals. In 5 years have taken 2 bulls with a bow. The first year I hunted rifle then was led into archery at RV’s place, and now I hardly squeeze a trigger unless its on the release of my bow. It’s a heck of a story if you meet me in person but no room here. Coming from a cattle ranching family, I didn’t think there was any better meat than beef, until I had elk. I am a meat hunter, so you wont see pictures of me with big antlers here(yet) but my picture is in their gallery. If you want to LEARN how to hunt elk, this is the place!! Not to mention its on public land. Where else can you hunt elk on public land for 5 days, have at least 2 hot, home cooked meals, hot showers and a clean warm bed every night for under $2000. Elk hunting eluded me for years because I thought you couldn’t do it for less than $6000. Thanks RV for teaching me how to hunt elk.

RV and Family,

I just wanted to say thanks for everything, we all had a great time even thou we didn’t get the elk. Once again the food was out standing and the hospitality was second to none. Its always nice to come to a place that treats you like your family Thanks for that. Hope you all fill your tags and in rifle season they don’t kill to many we need some for next year. Hope all your holidays are nice and its not to cold or snowy. Talk to you next year.

Thanks Again,

Mark, Wayne, Drew and John

P.S. RV if you need someone to do the Oaks Pa. show Wayne and I are willing to man the booth.

I talked with RV this morning and I will follow-up with him again after the 3rd rifle season ends. Attached is a picture of me and the tree that fell on me during the 2nd rifle season this year. I told RV, I would send him the picture. Tell him that I said the caption needs to be “I’m a little tougher than I look”. He’ll understand.
I really enjoyed the time I spent out there with you guys, hunting and getting know RV, the boys, and the ladies at the ranch. I had a great time up until the tree fell on me. Please also send my “hello” to Lisa, Amy, Elijah, Yancy, and others who were out at the ranch when I was there.
 Thanks for all your hospitality and for being the great people that you are. I look forward to visiting you guys again.
