me and my 2 brothers went there this past weekend,there was a total of 8 hunters and over a 2 day,1 morning and afternoon hunt not 1 hog was seen,shot at or anything.the other 5 hunters had reserved the lodge for themselves and thats what was promised to them.then we showed up to there suprise.worked out fine as that goes we all got along great.the "guides" didnt know anything to help us out with pointers for hog hunting.we are all avid deer hunters but all of our first hog hunts.example:ask one guide when the last time property was hunted 3 weeks ago.ask the other guide same question he says last weekend.all around a bunch of BS.and then when you confront them about being lied too."oh were a christian company we dont lie"quote on quote.DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME NOR MONEY.ALSO HAD 8 THATS RIGHT 8 HUNTERS IN AN AREA NO BIGGER THAN 75 ACRES THOUGH THEY CLAIM 350
Thanks for the heads up. Sorry about your luck. Were you able to retrieve some of your funds?

I use Cypress Creek hunting lodge in Estill,SC The owner Danny is a great guy! Has 10,000 acres.
He called me the other day and told me that he put out 4 hunters and every one of them saw at least 30 hogs "EACH"!
Im going on the 5th of March!!!!

"A hunt based on only trophies taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be...time to commune with your inner soul as you share the outdoors with the birds, animals, and fish that live there." - Fred Bear
I just hunted at Cherokee with 9 men (Feb 6-9 2014). 2 guys shot hogs, 100lbs sow and a 156lbs boar. 2 other guys missed pigs (but saw groups of 6 and 8) and another guy didn't take a shot at a hog that was moving. Another two guys had hogs that they heard grunting but couldn't see them. So out of the 9 guys that went, all but 2 saw or heard anything. Tom Naumann is a great guy who strives to give each visitor the best experience possible with hunting fair chase wild hogs. He doesn't have penned animals and only offers fair chase free range hunts. Just like deer hunting in your favorite woods, there are many times you go out and see nothing. Not everyone on every hunt is going to see animals. I'd go back and hunt with Tom and his staff again!
