Thanks again for a great trip. The hunting, food, facilities and hospitality at The Timbers all exceeded my expectations.
With regard to the hunting, although I filled my tag in a little over 24 hours, we saw 36 elk during that period, including one monster bull. Not too shabby.
The food was varied, plentiful, well prepared and delicious. I especially liked the large country breakfasts after the morning hunt and the family-style evening meals, particularly the regional cuisine.
The lodge is large, tastefully appointed and comfortable. I enjoyed the roaring fires and the Sunday football games on the large screen TV, complete with chicken wings and beer. My room had everything I needed and more. I slept better than I do at home.
With regard to the hospitality, Bill told me shortly after I arrived that The Timbers is a family operation. I would add that guests are treated like family there in the true Southern style.
Save room for me next year.
