5 Star Outfitters,
Glen & I have hunted in a lot of interesting places and had great adventures every time. This week we celebrated our 7th anniversary by hunting with 5 Star Outfitters and Koby Howell. This is the most outstanding hunt we have ever experienced bar none & we hunted 5 ½ hours from our home – not thousands of air miles away!
The hunt was challenging and exceeded all of our expectations. The hunting lodge and the owners of the property we hunted were 5 Star all the way = the cabins were nicely decorated and private. The main lodge was so nice we are planning to use the design for our new home and mounts from many other hunts.
This hunt was on a high fenced property but there was nothing ordinary or easy about this hunt. The Piney Woods of East Texas make hunts more challenging. We stalked my fallow deer for a 1 ½ days before I had an opportunity to harvest him. We hunted other animals that were challenging also.
Thanks to Koby and our hosts we were fortunate to harvest really high quality animals in a challenging hunting adventure. 5 Star Outfitters are the Memory Makers of the hunting world...... they really strive to make your hunt a chance of a lifetime opportunity & are very successful in their efforts.!

Thanks so much for a great turkey hunt this week. You have a first class operation. It was the first time hunting in that part of the country for me.
An experience I'll never forgot. Again thanks for a great time. Look forward to coming back.
I wanted to thank you and your staff for a GREAT opening of whitetail deer season. I think I can speak for the other guys I was with that we had an incredible time. I have been to only a few lodges in the past but this was by far the best operated facility. The accommodations and food were top notch and I can't speak enough for your team of guides. They were all very knowledgeable and friendly. A great bunch of guys to be around. Even after a week I am still excited about the buck I shot. It was truly amazing to be part of this hunting group and guides. My hats off to all of you. Working with Greg was helpful and fun.
Just wanted to tell you again thanks for making Josie and my trip to Texas such a great time! I appreciate all the hard work you and Ray put into our hunt. Josie really had a fantastic time and did not want to come home. That was very exciting to me as you know not knowing exactly how she felt down deep inside.
I also want to compliment you on the great job you did encouraging her in big and small ways all weekend. Your comments on the range about how well she was shooting and that she was better than many adults; your comments to her after she got the cactus in her leg during our stalk about getting back at the Axis for you getting into the cactus that refocused her back on the Axis. There were a couple of others I can't remember right now but you have a gift from our Lord in relating to kids for sure. Reegan is blessed for sure!
It was wonderful not only meeting your girls but also really getting to spend so much time with them. I feel like I really got to know your family and that's special to me. You are blessed with 2 wonderful, special girls and they sure added to the fun for Josie and I over the weekend. Please tell them thanks for adding to our fun!
Thanks again and I hope to talk to you soon.

It has been a dream and desire of many years to do a Rio Grande Turkey hunt in Texas. My biggest challenge was to choose the best outfitter/guide that was capable of providing me the premier hunt that I desired. I chose 5 Star Outfitters...what a great decision! First class accommodations that far exceeded my expectations...and beautiful scenery that was awe inspiring.
My guide, Chris, was extraordinary and certainly deserving his world class Turkey calling status! I arrived at the lodge at 12 noon Monday and at 12:45 I had my first bird. I had not even had time to unpack!
Well, suffice it to say that by 9:30 am Wednesday when I took my fourth Rio, I was a happy man...I had just fulfilled a dream hunt of a lifetime!
Koby, you can be sure I will be back next year for another Rio hunt and the 190-200 class whitetail hunt is DEFINITELY in my near future!
Thank you for a wonderful hunt and a very enjoyable time...I haven't relaxed this much in years!
