Customer Reviews

"We just finished our second year hunting at SLHR and we couldn’t be happier with the experience yet again. Cole and Carla’s hospitality and generosity are just a few reasons why we will choose to come back year after year. The hunting experience is mixed well with the guidance of Cole and tailored to the needs of each individual hunter. Rest assured that any shot on a hog will result in Cole’s relentlessness in tracking the animal to the end of the earth if need be! Carla was there after each hunt to greet us with a home cooked meal that left our bellies full and happy! The two of them together run an amazing operation that will leave you with not only adrenaline-filled hunting experiences but unforgettable memories with friends as well!" 

"Wow! If you have ever considered trying a hog hunt, just reach out to these fine people. Carla is the perfect hostess and Cole is a very hard working guide and a wealth of hog knowledge. Both of them go above and beyond to make every trip successful. I had opportunities while in the stand and while using their thermal scoped rifle. Got a good eating size sow with the thermal and it was like playing a hog killing video game.  I was originally concerned about this being a “canned” hunt with animals in a cage, but it is far from it. You will see hogs, but you have to do your part. I will be planning another trip when our meat runs out."

"7 of us drove down from Utah to come hunt with SLHR. After being down here for 4 days we can all say "It was worth the drive". Cole, Carla and the boys have been amazing host and guides. We have been well taken care of and have been in hogs everyday.  5 stars all around. We look forward to many more years to come."

"Only one thing I can say is WOW! The cabin is absolutely fantastic and meets expectations, very clean and very well maintained. Cole and Carla made us feel right at home and had great food the entire time. Had a great hunt. We killed two hogs with Cole and his dogs and both were an adrenaline rush to say the least! Really enjoyed hunting with Cole's sidekick Marcus as well and the boys were very polite. This outfit was very incredible and professional from the get go. Can't wait to come back!"

"Absolutely unforgettable memories! Thank you so much for an amazing experience! From hunting to noodling, we couldn't have ask for a more fun time! Carla & Carla were more than welcoming & the meals were impeccable.  We not only came to the ranch with our close friends but feel as if we've made more close friends upon leaving.  We hope to be back soon!"

"Excellent time! Came as a stranger, leaving as family.  Thank you for the excellent hunt, great food and unbelievable hospitality. Carla & Carla are 1st  class all the way around."

 "To start, the hospitality & generosity is unlike anything we have ever experienced.  Cole & Carla went above and beyond to make sure our hunting experience was top notch. Every time Carla cooked up one of her amazing meals, we ended up in food coma heaven!  The meatloaf changed our lives! <3 Cole is relentless when it comes to tracking hogs.  He has no quit in him! He was always ready & willing to put us on the hogs.  Both Cole & Carla make you feel welcome and like you've known them for years.  At the end of each night hunt, we all sat down for dinner and shared hunting stories of the day along with our past hunting stories.  Those are the types of memories you never forget.  We are already counting the days until we get to come back!!"
