Some buddies went there last year. One killed a Blackbuck, one a ram. They were all a little miffed at him changing what could and couldn't be shot when they got there. But he has a history of that.

I hunted at the old ranch a couple years back with him and was not impressed with the honesty either. When we arrived to the ranch we learned several animals in our package were not even on the ranch.

Don’t know the guy and never hunted there.

Was he on here years ago or did I make that up?

Ive hunted with him 4 times I think. The last two times everyone there got skunked. At his place you paid if you killed one or not. After the 2nd time of 6 hunters hunting all weekend and not bringing in an animal I never went back.

Like so many others, he has gone to chasing the buck instead of bucks. I hunted once on the old place and had an absolute ball. New place twice, and not so much. He just opened up the new spot and told great tales of improvements to come the first year. Next year everything was the same as before, no improvements. Only changes were to the price structure.

Don't know that he was or is a member here but had a near cult following at one time. One of those love em or hate em kind of places.

I met him once while he was helping a buddy out on a deer only day lease. Seemed like a nice enough guy at the time.

I was supposed to go with y'all on that trip. Clint Chambers organized that trip. He was hauling hot shot loads for the company I worked for at the time. Work got in the way unfortunately.

I paid my deductible to hunt at KJO and once the schedule conflict occurred, Keith reimbursed my deductible, which he did not have to do. He was a hard man to get a hold of.

We had a good time. It got really windy. So much so that it blew the charcoal grill over, after we lit it.

I was just wondering. He was hot and heavy on here for years and then nothing at all! Just weird. He is a nice guy but he definitely knows how to play the game to turn the odds in his favor.

Keith was always good to us on our trips. We have killed some cool critters out there and I really enjoyed hanging out with him and wade. But, he has moved on to a different format, in a different setting, that I just cant afford at this time. I don't blame him at all for the price changes, its business. I wouldn't hesitate to hunt with him at his new place, if I had the $. But to each their own.

Axe006 and I were just eating lunch and he asked me the same question. We hunted with Keith twice...had fun with buddies but no success except cheap pasture sheep with hopes of killing an axis, aoudad or blackbuck (even though a trophy fee was added to blackbuck between booking and arriving on our second trip). Been to Diamond C several times since and will see Skylar again Labor Day weekend this year. Interested in other responses on this thread.

Went there once. Had a good time with the group I went with. I shot a pig. They forgot me at my stand til about 10pm. (It got dark close to 9 so I wasn't out there too long.) They picked everybody up and realized I was still out there when they got back to camp. Didnt have phone service. Wasn't impressed with Mr Johns. The cabin had a leak in the roof. Rained all weekend (not his fault) other than my pig, nobody shot anything. Mr Johns told us we could come back at no charge since we didn't see any animals. I called no less than 11 times and left multiple messages in an attempt to re book. Never got a call back.
