Mike & Miss Carol,

    

    Our recent hog hunt at you place was one of the best hunting trips we ever have been on.   Your hospitality was far above anything we have ever experienced.   Also, taking 5 hogs in 2 days was an experience that will not be soon forgotten.

Keechi Creek Outfitters. In a word....WOW. 

First, let me tell you that I'm a native New Englander and a Naval Officer who has never lived or been stationed (until now) in a place that has a hog infestation like Texas. So yes, I understand that some people who are accustomed to these beasts would balk at paying a service for the chance to shoot one. I get it. But I had NEVER seen a wild hog and now that I was stationed in Texas, I wanted a chance to take one. More importantly, my daughter wanted to join me and go on her first hunt for big animals. Enough squirrels and woodchucks from back east, she said. It was time for a hog hunt!! I wanted to give her a great experience and Keechi Creek delivered.

Mike and Carol Barnett at Keechi Creek Outfitters run a CLASS ACT. If you want to see hogs and have an opportunity to take one or more, go to Keechi Creek. If you want to feel welcome and feel like family in a great camp, go to Keechi Creek. If you want to be guided by people who care about the quality of your experience, go to Keechi Creek!

Two points about Mike, Carol and their team at Keechi Creek Outfitters. First, they really like to see young people at their ranch. They feel very strongly that teaching a young person to hunt is an important part of life and Mike worked very hard to make sure that my 11 year old daughter had as many opportunities as possible. She didn't let him down! She took a 150 pound boar with her .243 on the second day. After her kill, I think Mike was just as thrilled as this proud Dad was! What a remarkable experience for us and my daughter has entered the world of hunting large animals thanks to Mike Barnett. Heck, she's already asking me when she can get a bow and a muzzle loader!

Second, if you are active duty, reserve, a veteran or retired, you won't find a more heartfelt fan than Mike Barnett. Period. He is genuinely supportive of his military and is grateful for the sacrifices that military folks make. As a guy who can't imagine doing anything else for a living, I was humbled to see Mike's amazing support for those of us who wear or have worn a uniform! He is a great guy, a fantastic guide and he runs a first rate operation. 

OK, by now you get the idea....I really enjoyed my experience. Look, if you are a native Texan and have grown up with feral swine all over the place, any ranch that hunts hogs is probably not the place for you. But if you haven't had the chance to hunt these beasts in the past, and particularly if you have a young person who wants to start hunting larger animals, Keechi Creek Outfitters IS the place for you. 

Oh, and Mike didn't ask me to post this. He didn't pay me or give me a free hunt if I wrote great stuff about him. The bottom line is that he offers a great hunt at a fair price and he genuinely cares about the folks who hunt with him. You will feel welcome in his camp and his lovely wife Carol is as kind and personable as they come. Go hunt with them, you won't be disappointed!! Me? I'm going back!! And believe me, my daughter won't let me go alone!!

Good luck,
Mark

Mike and Carol, i just wanted to say thanks for a great weekend. I certainly  
had fun hunting the hogs and more importantly getting to meet you folks. I  
also wanted to send a special thanks for Saturday night's crawfish boil. I  
never had an opportunity to have one like that and it was great, your  
hospitality went above and beyond. Don't hesitate to use me as a reference. Thanks again, Ben

Hello Mr. Mike!
I just want to say first thank you SO much for the awesome time at your 
place, it was a great time and Keith absolutely loved it as did I. Keith 
truly needed that time to relax and enjoy some hunting and get away from 
Dallas and out into some open space which we both love and appreciate. 
As for the hogs skull he would like it shipped to my place if possible.

Mike & Carol -- I had a great time not only hunting and wandering around your  
ranch but what was more fun was just hanging out with you guys. I had not  
eaten meat in 12 years only because you can't get it the way we had it on  
your ranch ..fresh .. hormone free etc . I talked to Jimmy and he told me  
what you charged us. Again thank you ,,, we will consider you guys fiends and  
 prominent donors of Honorvet. We will be back and hopefully soon.
thanks

Jordan, Carson, and I would like to thank you again for letting us hunt at  
Keechi Creek Outfitters.  We had a blast and those hogs were my son's first  
kill of any animal.  Your hospitality was second to none and made us feel at  
home.  We will be back and maybe I get get my wife Danica to shoot one next  
time.  We are looking forward to coming back hunt again. My boys said we  
needed to stay and camp next time we come.  Thanks for helping us make life  
long memories.

Thanks again,
Mark

Hi Mike and Carol,

I've been watching the weather since arriving home a couple of days ago
and it looks like you might be getting a bunch of rain!  Lucky for us
but no so luck for those Vermont Yankees :-)

Thanks again for the country hospitality but also professionalism you
both shared with our group while we were there.  I've been going through
desert withdrawal since getting back home and instinctively look for
banana pudding in the morning to mix with my cereal.

I look forward to another visit down the road some time.

All the best,  Scott

Dear Mike and Carol,

I just want to thank you again for the great hospitality and the wonderful experience we had last week.  Dan told my wife it was two of the best days of his life.  For me, the opportunity to be with my sons, grandsons and best friend was all it could have been.  Connor and Cash were in the office yesterday and kept telling everyone about their experience.  The stories get bigger and better with each telling. 

I will talk with you later about next year.  Very best to you and yours, Joe

===============================================================
Hi there I have been meaning to email you and Thank You and both for such a  
wonderful time!!  Philip and Ryan had a blast as well as Cash and I!!

Looking forward to another hunt sometime.

Take care!  Veronica

===============================================================
Just wanted to say thanks for a great hunt. In six hours, 500 lbs of hogs!  
Everyone was fully on board to see that Vero and I had a successful hunt.  
Once again, thanks for everything and you will definitely see us again.

Mike,
I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much my customer and I enjoyed you and Nelson's hospitality for our hog hunt this past Sunday. It really gave these northern boys a good taste of Texas and the hog hunting was fast paced. We felt relaxed and unpressured like I have on some other hunts. It certainly helped that we happened to be there in between two groups!
I would and will recommend your hunting lodge to several of my friends and I think Jeff is going to plan a hunt with his son in late summer.
Thanks again for a great time.

Regards,
Steven

Mike:

I wanted thank you for the great time my son and I had Mon aftn through Tue.  He could not wait to tell his Mom and sister all about it when we got home.  Also, I met the other Navy guy but forgot to get his email.  Could you pass that along?

Thanks
Gary

===============================================================
Mike. How are you? Hope you are well. Just wanted to say thank you for a  
wonderful and great weekend. I am definitely going to come back to visit you.  
Till then, take care. Philip

MIKE,
WE HAD A BLAST THIS YEAR.  JORDAN AND CARSON LOVES HUNTING DOWN THERE AND WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR.  THE BOYS ALSO LOVED HOW CODY WORKED FOR THEM AND TOLD THEM THINGS THEY NEEDED TO KNOW.  THEY THOUGHT STALKING WAS AWESOME, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND AN OLD MAN LIKE ME WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS.  THANKS FOR EVERYTHING.  JORDAN ALSO GOT RID OF HIS 243 FOR A 308.  WANTING SOMETHING A LITTLE BIGGER.

 

===============================================================
I want to thank you again for a great time. I was there with Rick Holt and my  
son got to shoot a hog. I just wanna say thank you again for visiting with us  
in the lodge telling us stories of experiences with other customers. My son  
loves hearing that stuff. I will be back soon to bring my daughter. Thansk  
again
Marc

Hi Mike,

 Many thanks for a great hog hunt at your ranch. I really appreciate all the assistance that you gave me to make the hunt successful.

 I found the yellow walkie-talkie in my jacket and will mail it back to you.

 The hog meat is excellent. We gave 40% of it to local friends and relatives. The rest, in the freezer, will last us a while.

 Please convey my regards to your lovely wife, Carol.
