We had a fantastic time at Western Oregon Outfitters. They are first class! We were treated like family with fantastic food, great guides, and a beautiful lodge. Our guide, Mike was top notch. He went above and beyond to get us a nice buck, and even added a fun fall turkey hunt we will never forget! We had a blast! We would recommend WOO to anyone who asks and we are hoping to return for a Columbia Whitetail soon.
I’ve booked two trips with David and his crew at Western Oregon Outfitters. The first was a two day turkey trip in May of 2010. It was late in the season and we hunted hard, but I had two turkeys in the cooler when I started my trip home. The guide, Daniel, knew the properties and the birds and he consistently put me in positions to be successful. It was really late in the season, and the second day required that we really put in the effort to kill a turkey. Daniel did not give up and he pulled every trick out of his bag so that I killed a nice tom about 45 minutes before sundown. My second trip was a cast-and-blast with one day chasing turkeys and another fishing for spring Chinook salmon. I had a nice tom down by 7:00 on the first morning a pretty hefty Springer in the boat by 7:00 the next day. This was an awesome trip and I plan to do this again soon. If you book a trip with Western Oregon Outfitters, you should expect to be pampered and be just a little fatter when you head home. The guides are top notch, the facility is first class, and the food will make you want to stay just a little bit longer. This will be an experience that you will remember with a smile for a long time. I am willing to personally speak to anyone to vouch for David and his guides. Please ask David for my contact information if you have any questions about booking with him.
My wife and I purchased an auction hunt for Rio Grande Turkey for two from Western Oregon Outfitters at the 2012 Safari Club International Conference in Las Vegas. This would be our first 'guided' turkey hunt. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by our hosts and invited to sit down for an awesome meal. The hunting lodge accommodations were nothing less than 5 star. The rooms were large and extremely comfortable. There was plenty of space for all of our gear. The meals were excellent and were a highlight of the day. We made new friends easily and enjoyed our dinner discussions every evening. The quality of the hunting terrain is top notch. Our guides were excellent as were the properties we hunted. Overall it was an outstanding experience and we enjoyed it immensely.
I have hunted with w.o.o. several times over the last three years, my daughter has killed two beautiful blacktail bucks including her first ever buck which earned her a spot in the Oregon record books. Dave and Kelley run an amazing operation! The lodge is awesome, the food is second to none, and the guides are as professional as they come! They make you feel at home the second you arrive and treat you like you are part of the family. For anyone who is looking for a quality hunting experience, I highly recommend w.o.o. You will not be disappointed.
My son Josh and I had our first turkey hunt with you right after you became owner of Western Oregon Outfitters. The hunting was excellent, as we each shot three bearded toms in three days! The accommodations and food were first rate, and we would love to come back in the future and stay in the new lodge. Cheers
In the hunting world it is not often that you find an outfitter who has the passion for hunting and the pure enjoyment of his guests. Western Oregon Outfitters certainly fulfills the experience on both accounts.
Two great hunts with Dave and Kelley!! Superior people. Great food and lodging. Guides were super great Daniel and Chris!! Daniel and I even won a trophy for the season! Will return to Hunt again ...
I rebooked after my first hunt with David and Kelly. They have a magical place in a gorgeous environ. And we are now good friends.
I really enjoyed my two hunts with you guys in 2010 & 2011. You run a first class operation. The lodge is very comfortable with bedrooms which make me feel like I am home. It was great fun sitting in the living room drinking draft beers and watching the World Series with you. Your lucky Giants! Watch out this year for my Cincinnati Reds. When you secure the Roosevelt Elk property I might just have to come this October to watch the Reds win the World Series. I really appreciated all the hard work Kelley spent in the kitchen preparing the fabulous meals. I looked forward every evening to the big plater of salad she would prepare, cob one night, garden the next. The meals are healthy and plenty, resturant quality and hard to not gain a few pounds. Your 2,000 acre property at the lodge is beautiful landscape to hunt the Columbia Blacktail. Very hilly and mountainous. It really works well the way the land has roadways throughout with access with your (4) seat Polaris's. I saw a lot of BT's on my five day hunt. I am proud of my (8) pointer with that (245) yard shot up the canyon. The land owner tag you secured for me for the Columbia Whitetail was a fabulous piece of property. We saw all kinds of CW & CB on my hunt. But it was not until that third day, mid morning that we came across that huge Columbia Whitetail. A real trophy for me, Ranked (34) all time in Oregon scoring 101 3/8" B.C. Thanks to my guide Daniel. I just love Oregon. In my eyes one of the most beautiful states. Roseburg is a hunting and fishing paradise. I will be back soon. I want to hunt a Roosevelt Elk and extend my stay to do a little fishing in the Umpqua. I want another crack at a big Blacktail. An Elk, Steelhead and a mammoth Salmon all on one trip, that is what happens in dreams but at your home it is a reality. I travelled to Oregon a stranger but left a friend.
We were first time turkey hunters and we had a blast! Our accommodations, food, guide, and staff were superb. What a thrill listening to the turkeys gobbling and watching them approach our blind struttin' their stuff. Our guide was professional, fun, and his passion for turkey hunting rubbed off on us. Can't wait to do it again!
