“The people at Sanctuary are some of the most genuine people that you could meet. They want to make sure you’re having a good time. Everything from the food, the deer, and the accommodations, will blow you away. From coming out west the landscape here (in Michigan) is incredible. It’s nothing like I expected. The type of trees, the oak trees, and the overall topography is fantastic. They’re hitting a home run in every aspect. Out west there is just nothing like this. The deer that are on this land are amazing, the action is fast and furious and it’s all day long. There are great bucks here, you see them, you get opportunities, and I just don’t know how you could top this. For our time here to work out the way it did, I can’t thank Sanctuary enough. We’ve built so many memories, and that’s really what it’s all about. We have been at Sanctuary for 3 days and I feel like I’ve known these people my whole life.”



“Everyone at Sanctuary is so great. Before we left the ranch, they asked us things like, “What do you guys like to drink?”, or “What kinds of things do you want in your bungalow?” to make our next stay at Sanctuary even greater. Their service is not standard; they truly want to accommodate to you. Sanctuary is also a great place for women. I had a great time with the girls—we talked, we hung out, and it was fun. The hunt itself felt quick. The deer came in, and I could only see his back end. There were a handful of beautiful bucks that came in as well, but our guide Trevor knew exactly what to look for and helped me through the situation. After I harvested the buck, I couldn’t even look because I had so much adrenaline. I even started to cry. I just didn’t know what to do with myself at the time, it was so exciting. When I first saw how big the buck was up close I couldn’t believe it.”
