My name is Mark Staley, from Wilmar, Arkansas. I would like to tell you about my Whitetail bow hunt in Pike County Illinois with Xtreme Hunts and My guide Tony May .
I was looking to go on my first guided hunt and I met Tony May at the Arkansas Big Buck Classic, I spoke with several outfitters and as soon as I left Tony’s booth, I told my wife , Tony was the guy I was going to book my hunt with! After booking , Tony kept in touch and took care of applying for Permits and license. He also sent multiple trail cam pictures. After arriving, I was made to feel at home. The camp was nice, clean, and safe! I hunted late October 2016 for 5 days, the weather was warmer than normal, but Tony put me on deer everyday! Tony worked equally as hard for the other 2 bow hunters in camp as well! I saw 3 shooter bucks during my hunt, just never got a shot opportunity! All the stands were nice and safe, also in good locations! The stands were well marked and easy to find, Tony would take you to the stand if you weren’t sure on the location. Tony would bring lunch to the field if you decided to hunt all day and always had a backup plan if something wasn’t right at a stand location (wind, farming, etc). I would have loved to tag out, but I have no complaints, Tony did everything possible to get me a shot! I could have killed tons of does and small bucks ! But, you don’t go to Pike County Illinois to kill a small bucks ! One of the stands I hunted , I had eyes on deer almost every minute of the day ! If you are looking for a outfitter, give Tony May and Xtreme Hunts a call ! I rebooked for another hunt in 2018. I would be happy to talk to anyone about my hunt.
