We feel confident to say there are no other guides in the industry that are any better. They are Christian men of integrity who have been hunting all their life. They have hunted various places throughout the country and are avid hunters themselves since childhood. Being seasoned hunters enables them to know first hand what a great hunting experience really is all about. There is never any pressure from the guides for hunters to shoot, the hunt is the hunter’s hunt and the guide is there to assist in choosing the best hunt locations because of extensive preseason scouting and to assist in aging and scoring the bucks for quality management. If a mistake is made on scoring the burden is on Quest Haven not the hunter, meaning the hunter has security to know there will not be an upcharge if he harvests a bigger buck than he agreed to and if the buck is smaller he pays the lower price. In addition, no buck, no bill, the hunt is on Quest Haven. Retrieval of hunter’s buck, field dressing and caping are also a part of the services guides provide.
In addition to being experienced hunters many of our guides are also a part of our family, so they not only have a vested interest and pride in our family owned and operated business, but they have grown up around Whitetail deer all their life meaning they know the mannerisms, patterns and what to expect and look for when it comes to the species. All of these men are proficient at scoring and can assist hunters on judging a Whitetail Buck’s score and age on the hoof.
