I'll give you this, its a different kind of hunt. Niether of us know if its the easiest in the country, but a great buck is a sure thing. So far, each of the 10 hunts have lasted 1 day. Each hunter has killed the buck they wanted. This year, niether hunter will kill a 6 point, and its doubtful you'll see the pavement in the distance. OF the 10 hunts, only two have been killed on the East side. One was kill right on the top. 7 were killed on the West side.
Exclusive? Sure, there are only two hunters, one at a time. Both are exclusive with no compitition. Does one have a head start? Yes, but has that mattered? 1st year, the auction guy killed a 39 inch 239 buck, the state hunter had to settled for a 37 inch 245 buck. Do you fill bad for him.
The 2nd year, the Auction guy killed a 36 inch 270 buck, the state hunter killed a 33 inch 255 buck. Without Doyles help, that hunter would have most likely killed 30 Inch 190 class buck. Thats the best buck they saw on their own. They were not prepared for that hunt, what so ever.
Only the 3rd year of the hunt, was the auction hunters buck significantly bigger than the state hunters. And most on here liked the state hunters buck better
The 4th year, Denny got his 40 incher, and the state hunter, a lady, killed the biggest deer on the island thanks to Doyle. Without him, she most likely would have killed the 1st descent buck they saw.
Last year, both bucks were about 231 inches, both mid 30's.
There have been 5 state hunters kill deer out there. Same island, same tame deer, same exclusive easy hunt. But in 5 years, you have yet to critisize, or make fun of the state hunter. That would make most believe that your issue isn't with the hunt itself, just the guy that guides the 1st hunter.
