Family Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Ben and his family do a nice job of making everybody feel more like hunting buddies than clients. The accommodations are clean, spacious, and comfortable. The meals are like eating at your Mom’s house. I’ve been hunting with Ben and his team for about five years and I really appreciate the consistency he provides in and out of the field. I will continue to book with Ben and his family.

I have hunted with Timberland Outfitters several times. They always go out of their way to try and make the hunt the best they possibly can for their hunters. They lodge is a perfect "home base" for any hunts in the area. It is a Beautiful lodge with all the amenities that you need. Its nice to be able to return to such a nice place after spending all day in the elements hunting. I would recommend this out fitter to anyone out there.

My biggest concern are big whitetails and this place has them. I seen a lot of big bucks and killed one of my biggest bucks on this property. I had a great time hunting and the lodge is great. I was able to rest comfortable wash my clothes and have all the comforts of home which was a plus. Good times and Big bucks I can't wait to go back.

Top Producer with incredible lodge

  • 5 of 5

The hunting at Bens place is unbelievable. I've hunted all over the mid west and he's the outfitter that produces yearly.

The lodge is beautiful and the food is fantastic. The lodge has a beautiful farm feel with a gorgeous view of sunrise and sunsets. The rooms and baths are extremely clean.
