Our trip to Apple Creek Whitetails was everything we had hoped for and more. We didn't plan to shoot a deer on the first day but we heard a shot and knew Kregg had probably got a buck. He shot a 8 pointer with 30 inch main beams. I saw numerous bucks but was sort of waiting to see pumpkin neck, he looked like he had swallowed a pumpkin, his neck was really big and so was the rest of his body. We saw a little sparring between some bucks but when my buck came in the clearing I knew this was one I would love to shoot. I asked Chad if it was a go and he said yes and I made a good shot and there was no tracking involved. The food and lodging was exceptional, we even got to take some of Chad's money playing Texas Hold-em.View Photo
Just wanted to send you a thank you note for the awesome trip that my brother, John, and I had last month at Apple Creek. It was our second trip to Apple Creek. You and your guides run a great place. It's clear that taking care of your customers is at the top of your list. The hunt, the accommodations, the food (Lory was great!), and the deer are all first class.
David was my guide again this year for the second time. That worked out well. He had a great stand picked out for me even before we arrived. He really worked hard to make sure we found my deer. Bill and Jerry helped as well; I really appreciated that. They jumped in to help even though they were not my guides.
And since I got my deer first this year, I was able to watch my brother hunt this time. Jerry chose stand locations where all three of us could hunt together - again...really a great way to treat your customers.
My brother and I are coming back next year for our third trip. Eleven months to go, and we're already looking forward to it. I'll be bringing my son with me this time - he can hardly wait.
Thanks again; we look forward to seeing you next year.
I would like to say that Apple Creek Whitetails is a first class operation. The experience that we had as a father and son trip along with 6 good friend was a hunt of a life time. I have hunted a lot of places in my years and Apple Creek is at the top of my list.
Jon ( my guide ) was very knowledgably and a great person. The whole staff was always positive and willing to do anything to make our trip a complete success. Anytime you ask anyone at Apple Creek about a certain deer you wish to shot. They would go pull him up and take you where he would hang out. the rest is up to the hunter. The 3 deer that I shot were unreal and totaled around 893 B & C points.
Let's not forget about the food. The food was very good and always plenty of it. Coming from LA that is a complement to the chief. We will be back next year for another unforgettable week with the BEST hunting lodge in the U.S...
God Bless and Take Care
Chad, thank you so much for the adventure and the meat. As expected, the top quality of Apple Creek's entire team held true from beginning to the very end as usual. Give our thanks to every staff member. It was even more special to see Sylvia again and meet with the baby. After Lory and her cooking, I'm now on a diet.
You guys did a terrific job packaging the meat. It was like Christmas in October yesterday, opening it up and hey even my Butcher was impressed. I can't wait to get the final product back & ready for consumption on Saturday.
Be well, good hunting and kick wild Bill for me. Can't say enough good things about him and you better make sure he got his tip! Yes I know how big his head already is, but all you guys are really great.
I really enjoyed Apple Creek and I hope I can come back. It is a great place and everyone went out of their way to make our experience memorable. My hunting buddy Charlie said on the way back that maybe we should re-book instead of going someplace new so that's the tentative plan for now.
I am planning on writing to Chad and John ( my guide) and would also like to write to Scott to thank them too!
I did not get Scott's last name and I was wondering if you could pass that on and his email address. I would really appreciate that!
Tell everyone hello and thanks again for a wonderful time!!!!
I know I told you already and said the same thing last year but we really can't express how amazing our trip was. My Dad and I had an awesome time and such a great hunt; he always wanted to hunt a whitetail in velvet and after my experience at Apple Creek last year I knew it was the place for him.
The food, hospitality, accommodation and entire hunting experience was first class and will be a cherished memory for both of us for years to come. Looking forward to seeing you all next fall.
I received the jacket today. Just wanted to relate to you what a wonderful time we had at Apple Creek this year. Cliff is still thanking me for taking him this year. When I tell my friends about our experience there and the five star accommodations they think I am exaggerating.
I have enjoyed reminiscing the experience since returning to the balmy south. Thanks for the experience!
We had another great time at Apple Creek! After our hunt back in January, We thought we could never top that trip, but this trip was even better. We all killed two nice bucks each, and the accommodations were awesome just like last time. The Guides, the food, the facilities and hunting at Apple Creek are second to none. I am already excited about coming back next year. Keep up the good work and we will see you next year, if not before. Thanks,
Thank you for the update. Apple Creek continues to amaze me with customer service and loyalty. Hope you get him soon little Sam is going crazy.
Chad just wanted to let you know I think you have a great operation you are running and really enjoyed my stay there I have been in a lot of ranches and you and your staff are number one in my book just wanted to say thanks for a great time and Bill is one heck of a good guy but also the whole group of guys they get along really well from what I can see . Thanks again.View Photo
Chad & Crew, I had a super time hunting with you guys. I have hunted 3 different ranches before coming to Apple Creek and none of them came close to you in efficiency at running a deer ranch. The couple cooking and care-taking were super & very easy to be around. The guides were great! The videos are wonderful to view & relive the hunt. After I got my monster buck (303"!) the whole processing was the best that I have received anywhere. I hope to see you all Nov. 2012!View Photo
In December, 2011, my son and I had an exceptional hunting experience at Apple Creek Whitetails Ranch. The excitement and challenges of hunting were combined with the accommodations of a resort with a rustic atmosphere. The exceptionally prepared food, comfortable beds, and incredible hospitality made for a relaxing, satisfying experience. Of course, the highlight of the trip was the hunting. The experienced, personable guides led us through unforgettable challenges, and the videography was a special touch that allows us to relive the action of the hunt. Plus, being pictured in the brochure with my trophy buck is also quite a memento. Together with the hunting, we were also treated to awesome ice fishing. Apple Creek Whitetails Ranch provided us with an experience well beyond our expectations; it was not just a hunting trip; it was an adventure. Needless to say, we are looking forward to our next visit.View Photo
I have hunted all over the US, and Apple Creek Ranch is the most awesome place that we have ever been to. Apple Creeks staff, facilities and deer are all great (cooking was too)!! This has been my most enjoyable, memorable and successful hunt of my lifetime. I am coming back this year and can only hope it will be half as much fun as last season. Chad is a great host! I was guided by Vern and my friend was guided by Bill and they are great also!! Cant wait to go back !! Thanks, Jim C.View Photo
First off I'd like to thank the staff and my guide. I had a great time at your facility, the rooms were 2ND to none. I also liked that the cook would ask you what we liked to eat and looked it up and delivered, and not only delivered the cook rose to the equation and hit the recie right on the spot. The hunt was something that wasn't expected because I've never been on a high fence hunt before and wasn't quite sure how to feel. This hunt is as good as it gets when it come to high fence hunts. In my opinion its as hard as you want it to be and not as easy as one would think. Over all I was really impressed with the facility and the size of the woods I myself and my friends will be coming back.View Photo
Our second trip to APPLE CREEK was every bit as enjoyable as the first. This time we had 6 hunters and, of course, more guides to meet. All guides and every other crew member on campus did their usual top notch job. I really enjoyed the fact that the VET came to the locker room to preform the CWD operations. Watching him was a privilege not too many hunters get to see. The food was 5 star for sure.View Photo
We had a great time. I have never met a group of guys (your guides) that were so accommodating. I have 115 acres in southwest Wisconsin where we deer and turkey hunt, we have shot some really big deer there (over 160’s) , but the size of the racks at your place were awesome. The food was great, in fact our wives, after we got home, were sick of us bragging about how good the cooking was. The rooms were very nice and comfortable, they were like a high class motel. We were talking about bringing our wives this year...we will keep you posted. Thanks Again!View Photo
Just a quick note to thank you for the biggest buck I will ever shoot!! You people have been real good to Bill & Me; and it is appreciated very much...Say hello to all the "Gang"View Photo
To everyone at Apple Creek...when we were told our child had cancer, it forever changed our lives. I don't know how to say in words how your hunt has affected Austin. He is so proud of his buck and plans to have him mounted. Everything was spectacular, from the food to the amazing lodge, not to mention all of the wonderful people. You have shown us the old happy feelings that were only a memory. God Bless you for your generosity.View Photo
Dear Apple creek, I wanted to take a minute and express my thanks for giving me the hunting trip of a lifetime. Your staff made my stay a memorable experience that I will never forget. Since coming home I have found myself searching your website and dreaming of the monster bucks and great home cooking. Thank you for making me feel like I was part of the family I hope to be back soon.View Photo
I am sending this letter to you to say "Thank You" for a wonderful experience, in only four days. My guide Chad and all of your staff treated me so personally with their care and time. The trophy buck that I left with was the best every; scoring close to 200 points! You will see me again next year. My son in interested in a Father/Son experience...so for now, thank you all.View Photo
Wanted to thank you again for a GREAT HUNT and a great time. My grandson Brennan can't quit talking about it. All of his friends Dad's call me to ask where did you go to get Deer like THAT!View Photo
Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the incredible trip. We had an awesome time and took the best bucks of our lives. Your entire staff was exceptional and we could not have asked for more. My guide worked harder for me than any guide on any trip that I've ever been on. Your ranch is top notch and your deer herd is amazing. Everyone is blown away when they look at pictures of our bucks. Thanks again, hope to see you next season. Kevin T. PS: The bag and tag scents work great! I have already placed two orders for them.View Photo
Thanks again for a great hunt this past week. My brother and I had a great time. Your guides, staff, and accommodations were awesome. We're getting ready to book again for next year!View Photo
We had a great time last weekend at the Ranch. The people and the hunt were more than we could have expected. Thanks for the hospitality and look forward to seeing you again.View Photo
I wanted to send you a note to thank you and the entire Apple Creek staff for an amazing whitetail hunting trip. I selected Apple Creek for a whitetail hunt of a lifetime, what received was far more than we could have ever imagined. What we received was an EXPERIENCE of a lifetime! It was amazing to watch my father, who turns 70 this year, feel so relaxed and at ease that he knocked down the biggest buck of his life with his archery equipment! It was a direct result of Apple Creek's entire operation, along with a combination of professionalism and true friendship that allowed a father/Son whitetail experience of a lifetime. We will see you again!View Photo
From the moment we arrived until we said goodbye everything was first class. I have hunted a lot of places but have never seen anything like Apple Creek...Truly an amazing place...while there we were treated like kings. Please express my thanks to everyone who made our trip a success. Thanks again for a wonderful trip.View Photo
I hunt all over the world and hunt all year round; Applecreek has become my favorite place to go. I rarely visit the same place twice, we just rebooked Applecreek for the third year in a row and plan on coming back every year. What separates you from the rest is that every aspect of your operation is five-star, the customer service, the food, the guides, staff, facilities, eagerness to improve, handicap accessibility, fishing, photography opportunities, pricing, and on and on. When we get back home to the South and show those pictures, no one can believe what they are seeing. I feel proud to recommend such a first-class place. Your guides are beyond exceptional and are the best. There is never a time for the whole weekend that they are not there for the customer's every need. They have become friends, good friends of our group. They stay interested and enthusiastic for each and every hunt, even though I know they do this everyday. They have the passion that is hard to find in any line of work with employees. They go out of their way to provide a uniquely special time for every person in the group whether they are shooting a small deer, big deer, handicapped, or just observing. Thank you again for your great service, great deer, and I'll keep bringing the great friends and clients!!View Photo
I wanted take the time to thank everybody involved with our hunt over the weekend. It was tremendous, we could not have been treated any better or made to feel more welcome by everybody. Apple Creek is a first class operation with first class people.View Photo
Apple Creek Whitetails has such an Aloha Spirit of making you feel right at home! They have the Ritz Carlton touch with wonderful service, hospitality and trophy bucks! Another wonderful year with the entire staff. Thank you for making us feel so special and catering to our every needs! You are the best! A Hui Hou!View Photo
