A NOTE FROM BOBBY STOKER
The only thing better than hunting and fishing is going with friends. And that is exactly what I have planned for late October, 2016. I would like to invite you and a buddy to join me for a three-day getaway to one of North America's top rated hunting destinations, located in Sebree, Kentucky. We will stay at the renowned Deer Creek Lodge, where the combination bird hunting is the best around, and the bass fishing is second to none! To top it off your travel, lodging and hunting expenses are included! I look forward to seeing you there!
