I've been twice. Mike and Jim-Bob will show you a good hunt.
Look for the hogs about mid-morning it the south west corner. There is a good stand off trees they like to hold up in. If there not there, Then go to the south east corner.

There not "world class". The later in the season you go, the more educated they are. Practice your shots out to 40 or 50 yards.

Sweetwater creek is great. A bunch of us go about 4 to 5 times a year. Jim Bob and Micheal are just wonderful. Great lodges and lots of animals. If you dont shoot something then you better practice hunting cause its pretty darn easy. I would recomend it to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been doing alot of stuff with these guys , For the last 5 years, Both Mike and His Dad are top rated people .We hunt quite a bit in the off season , I can tell you about the place it is first class all the way , However it is not like hunting most highfence places , You have to hunt and you have to hard you can't shoot anything in the lodge watching tv . The only reason you won't shoot anything is that you choose not to shoot . We usually process the animals for there customers so we get see what comes in 90 % of them that come on are great looking .

Most of us never even got a shot at an animal.

Buffalos aren't hard to hunt. They are in a seperate pasture with only Buffalos and a few Elk that can't be hunted.

Exotic pastures are seperate.

They got the game, think about how many hunters run through there and hunt accordingly. Here's a few I've taken there.

Great place....Jim Bob and Michael will show you a great time. It is a place you have to HUNT.....the critters have some room to roam

Just got back from Sweetwater. Once again, a great hunt. We saw hundreds of animals every day. Saw some great axis in velvet, they will be nice bucks in April.

I hope to go back in October some time. March isn't exactly the easiest time to hunt animals that have been pursued since September. Don't let the complainers sway your opinion. If you want to HUNT, Sweetwater is a good place.

I & a few of my friends have been to Sweetwater 6 times. Always had a great time & we hunt hard. Our last trip was a year ago Sept. I beleive & saw very few animals & no one had a shot at anything. We were surprised.
Jim Bob & Michael are great & the facilities are great too-we just decided not to go back-two of my friends did at the beginning of last season & again, saw very little game.
Buffalo is in a seperate area.
Let us know if you go & how you do.
