What Hunters Have To Say About Us

"André, let me thank you for a great hunt. I really enjoyed hunting with you. It's always good to hunt with someone that knows what they're doing. I hope we can share a camp again someday."
If you are a serious bow hunter and have never tried spot and stalk mule deer you should give it a try. André and the crew at Willow Creek will DEFINETLY put you on deer. I saw plenty of game, had multiple opportunities, and cannot wait to return! André I want to thank you for the great hunt we had with you. It was unbelievable how many deer we saw and how close you got us to them. Can't wait to get my trophy back from the taxidermist, and look forward to hunting with you in the future.
"I was impressed by the quality and age of bucks we found. What made the hunt challenging for me was the field judging and comparison of so many nice animals, and attempting to choose a great deer over a very good deer, I had never hunted mule deer before. My guide Kelly was great in that he kept me patient and helped me make a good decision. We are returning because I want to see all those deer I passed with another year on the antlers!"
I have been hunting with André since 2008, he was recommended to me by another guide in Alberta. What better reference than from the competition. Well I was not sorry at all. On my first hunt with Willow Creek Outfitters, we spotted a real nice 5x5 and crawled and waited for 7 hours within 30 yards for the buck to give me a shot, when he did get up he walked away with no shot until he turned and walked towards us broadside at 28yds. One arrow and four jumps later he was down. In subsequent years I have seen mule deer and whitetails all over the place. I can only say that I would not want André hunting me! Good people and a great hunts.
André, I had a great time on the hunt and from a hunter’s perspective, you have a great operation. The efforts that you put forth were outstanding. I have been on several guided hunts over the years, and of the places I have been I would rank Willow Creek Outfitters at the top of the list.
I have hunted with Willow Creek Outfitters three times, harvesting a 164" and 186" mule deer, a 148" whitetail, and a blocky 6ft.-3" black bear! Now that's hunting! At Willow Creek Outfitters I've discovered quality deer management that limits resident hunting, producing lots of big deer, diligent pre-season scouting on thousands of acres of private land, and hard working, experienced guides.

"André, Jill and I enjoyed the hunt and hope to have the opportunity to hunt with you again. Thanks again for a very professional hunt, your hospitality, and good company.
I have hunted with the Willow Creek Outfitters many times and have experienced nothing but excellence. I have been on three archery mule deer hunts, three rifle bear hunts as well as two mule deer hunt during rifle season. I have taken three nice mule deer bucks. During the three hunts Andre and I have stalked numerous large bucks that he has taken me within 30 to 40 yards. On the two bear hunts I have harvested one very nice black bear, missed a large boar and seen plenty of game. André not only is the best guide I have ever been with, he is a hunter, he is a good person, knows what he is doing and works extremely hard on your behalf. Prior to Willow Creek Outfitters I have been with many other outfitters, none of which can hold a candle to this operation. The terrain is beautiful and the animals are in abundance. Since I have met André I have taken five other hunters with me and they all had the time of their life. I highly recommend Willow Creek Outfitters
When I am searching for an outfitter there are a few things that I look for. An area that has an abundance of game an produces trophy animals. An outfitter that has strong knowledge of the area and is willing to go to great lengths to help me harvest my animal. Willow Creek Outfitters excels at all of these. Hunting with Andre at Willow Creek Outfitters is an experience that I would recommend to anyone looking for an absolute great time.
