Dannie and Adam,
Thank you for another amazing hunt for my gold medal Merino ram. You always exceed any and all expectations. Hunters take notice. I have achieved 2 silver medals, 2 gold medals, 3 top ten awards; and thanks to Adam and Dannie I completed my “Big horn” slam for another potential gold medal with R.O.E. I did this all with a recurve bow. Dannie has helped me grow as an archer and Adam has taken every footstep with me on the 17 yr. Quest. GOD bless you both.

Thank you; We love you. Vince and Mary Elam

Dannie,
Words cannot describe the gratitude in my heart for how much your son helped us and made us feel right at home. He gave us instructions on what to do and allowed us to hunt on our own. We had a Dall Sheep near us most of the hunt and even though the first hour was pretty wet we had a great time. Everything was top notch and I will be back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great time. Thank you for all the help with the booking process and answering all my questions. This memory is something I’ll cherish the rest of my life.

Yours truly,
Nathan Travis.

Dannie, Nina and Adam,
I come to the Double D for two reasons and will continue to do so. The quality of the game is unsurpassed. The camaraderie is unmatched. This is my biggest buck ever and far exceeds the ad description and picture.

Thanks again,
I’ll be back.

To Dannie and Adam,
Thank you so much for the great boars we got on our trip to Double D Ranch. My wife and I had a blast!! You guys were great every step of the way and were extremely patient and easy going. The care of the hogs after we harvested them was also top notch and Adam did a great job with the processing and packaging. I will definitely be coming back, within the year, most likely with a few more people to come experience the great time we had all over again! Thank you again!

Dannie and Adam,
Thank you again for another great hunt. Raymond took his 1st ram today and it was a bit rough to get on them for such a young kid. You guys were amazingly patient and did everything possible to get him his trophy. I can’t thank you enough. We will be back soon!!

Dannie, Adam, Nina,

Thank you for another fantastic hog hunt. There is a reason my wife Mary and I hunt at DD Ranch. For the better part of 16 years we hunt two and three times per year. The animals are second to none in trophy size, gourmet quality meat, and a true adventure in hunting. Hunters come challenge your self and test your equipment. Hunting at DD Ranch has taken our hunting skills with firearms and archery equipment to a whole other level. Adam you are a beast thanks for everything.

Absolutely beautiful deer and one of my best hunts ever. The rain and hail coupled with s muzzleloader only added to the excitement.

I’ve hunted all over the country and this hunt was better than almost all of them.

Next year, I still want to hunt the “perfect 10”.

Thanks again,
John

Dannie,

Wanted to thank you for the great time the Butler County Sportsmen group had. You guys worked your butts off and don’t think it wasn’t appreciated. Adam made our hunt special .. he is a great guy.
I tried the sausage and one of the ham steaks today, the meat is outstanding. Just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks, hope to see you again soon.

Thanks so much for a great hunt and experience this weekend. My son and I had a ball and are very happy with the two hogs we were able to take. You and Adam made it very fun, and we could tell you two were working hard for us. Carter Ray was able to get a good taste of just how mean and aggressive these boars can be. He will never forget after his close crossbow shot the hog turning towards him and chomping his teeth the whole time!! We will be back again next year for sure. Looks like this will be a annual trip for my son and I.
Thanks again and take care, see you next year…

I just wanted to tell you thank you for a good time, my boy is still telling everyone about his hog. You have a nice set up and we appreciate everything you guys did and especially the hog mount. We got it fixed and it’s already hanging on the wall. I will highly recommend your operation.

Thanks again. David L.

Dan and Nina,

Thank you again for another great weekend at the ranch. The boys and I had a blast like usual. Tyler can’t wait to get his dall back from the taxidermist and we have already started eating Wyatt’s and my hogs. So cool to be able to run around those hills with my boys like I did with dad and Dan when I was a kid. Can’t wait till next time! See you soon.

Dannie- I just wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude for the exceptional service by you and your staff. My son Brock and I had a fantastic time. The cabin was a fun way for us to start our hunt, the ranch was great and our guide Tim was excellent. Tim really was patient with Brock during the hunt which helped him stay calm during our stalk and ultimately led to him making a perfect shot on a huge hog. Your care of our game after the hunt exceeded my expectations as well.

I highly recommend Double D and Brock and I look forward in returning.

Best, Tony Perkins

I thoroughly enjoyed Sundays White tailed deer hunt, and our insightful conversation! “You are my kind of people, and I say “people” because Nina and your staff are included and were great! Adam’s leadership as a guide was helpful and educational, and the results were spectacular! I’ve dreamed of putting a Buck like this on the wall for 30 years!

I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome hunt and the great ram you were able to get me. Adam and Tim did a great job guiding me. The Corsican ram I was able to harvest was exactly what I was hoping to get with his full curl. I will definitely be planning a future hunt.

Date: October 22, 2015

This was my second hunt at the ranch and once again it was top notch service from Dannie, Adam, Tim and Josh! I got a awesome trophy elk and it took them all a lot of work to take care of the animal. I know Jack from Hatton Taxidermy does not work at the ranch but he is just as great to work with and spends all the time you need to figure out the best mount you can get. The camaraderie was great as well. As I said before I will definitely recommend this ranch to my friends and I look forward to my next trip there. Thank you again for a great time and a memorable hunt.

Just want to say my husband and I enjoyed our hunts with you all earlier this summer. He has his boar skull all bleached and the tusks are awesome. He is in the process now of pickling and prepping my Spanish Goat hide for mounting. We are already talking about coming back late next spring or early summer. He occasionally checks your picture gallery to see if his pic with his boar is there. He is pretty proud of it. And to think he went clear to Texas to get one half the size…. Again thanks. Yuns do a wonderful job and we have highly recommended you all to many people.

I just wanted to drop a quick thank you note Dannie, Adam and Josh. I was just there on a Fallow hunt. Adam dropped me off in a spot he thought would be good and two and a half hours I bagged a beautiful chocolate Fallow. Dannie was there in no time to pick my deer up. The ranch is gorgeous with steep hills and deep ravines and plenty of animals to watch. After the hunt Dannie and Adam spent time talking with us sharing their knowledge and stories. It felt like good friends catching up in a way even though that was the first time I met them. It was a very relaxing atmosphere. Josh was excellent as well as he spent time making sure how you wanted the deer processed and was very friendly as well. Even showed us some of his wood carving he does. The service was great overall. I look forward to coming back and hunting there again. I will definitely recommend your ranch to my friends. Thank you again for a great time and a great hunt.

Dannie, Besides having a great time and meeting lots of nice people.My guide Tim did an outstanding job and Josh who processed my hog did the best job at packaging I’ve ever had done,. The real plus is the meat is excellent. I’m looking forward to returning next year.

Dannie,

We had a great time. My boys can’t stop talking about the experience. Your staff was great, both your son and Tim. I appreciate how they worked with my boys, and let them go in all out! It was also a pleasure to meet you. You run a great operation. I am sure your community is proud to have you as a partner. We will be back!

Hi Dannie,

I just wanted to thank you and your wife as well as your other guides for a great time this past weekend. I know how busy you must stay and I also know how hard it can be sometimes to put on so many different hats to make sure everyone stays happy (which is impossible all the time). I just wanted you to know that I really appreciate what you do and anytime a 15 year old tells a parent how much they enjoyed hanging out and hunting with you and the others, that says a lot. In this day and age most teenagers don’t want to be around adults! You are much more than just a businessman or guide service. Just thought you should know and since I am a Doctor in Psychology I think I may know a thing or two about people, (maybe not as much as my brother of course, just ask him)!! Lol. I hope to hunt with you again someday. If there is ever anything I can do for you up this way, give me a shout!

Thanks again,

Bill Kimberlin (and Bailey, Jay Sr.)


Date: March 11, 2015

Hi Dan,
I want to thank you and Adam for today’s hunt.
Also a big thank you to Josh for the butchering. You are truly blessed with two wonderful sons. Let Adam know that I plan on spending less time on bench shooting and work more with using tress. God bless his patience.
Again, thank you and I’m already trying to let my wife return soon for a larger hog.

Sorry this has taken so long to get back to you, but life gets busy. Kyle and I wanted to tell you how thankful we were to go hunting with you all. You made us feel right at home.

Thank you,

Dan and Nina,

I just want to thank you guys for another great weekend! It was an absolute blast. It was a lot fun spending the weekend with all of you and hunting. It sure was fun all of us setting around the big table in the lodge and having a great dinner and to hear everyone laughing and having fun. Josh’s girls and Felix were very entertaining! It was a great night. The fallow buck and doe I got were great animals as usual. Never disappointed in the animals I have hunted at the ranch, they are the best quality of anything around. I cant believe its been almost 20 years already going up that hill, seems like just yesterday I made my first trip with Dan up that hill. Thanks so much for the great memories, they just keep getting better and better. You guys are great and mean the world to me and my family. Thank you so much for everything, I really don’t know how I could ever thank you guys!

Dannie,

I would like to extend a Huge Thank You to you and the Family. This past weekend was again another Excellent time at the Double D Ranch. One of the more exciting Hunts that I have experienced due to Mr. Axis Buck a bit on the Wild Side to say the least, but You and the Family treated every one this past weekend the same you did when I started coming down over 6 Years ago. Every Year is as exciting or more exciting and I always head back home with good memories and stories to tell. This year I was able to obtain a great memory for the wall too, which will be as great as a conversation piece as the many other memories on the wall that are only and or have only been possible due to the operation you have and the way you run it. And many good tasting meals ahead.

Thanks Again, Talk with you all soon…

Dannie and family,
Thank you for a great hunt last weekend. The communication between you and Adam on the stalk of that BIG Russian Boar was awesome. The Butcher (sorry forgot his name) was very nice enjoyed watching him work. Ask him if his wife made those scotch eggs? Let me say that the meat from that pig is the best pork I have ever had.

Thanks

Thanks again and oh, yes – the hunting bug has bit us and we will be back again.

Hi Dannie & Nina,

I wanted to thank you for the amazing experience. Our guide was wonderfully patient and extremely knowledgeable. It was very important to me that this be a good experience for my 11 year son, as this will shape the way he feels about hunting. I had never hunted before and since it is usually considered a “guy thing”, I was nervous. Adam helped me to feel right at home in the woods. We have been telling everyone that will listen that you run such an ethical outfit and your prices are amazing. We look forward to returning for our next adventure!

God bless,
Aimee McGowan

Danni, Nina and crew-

Just thought I’d drop you a line and send a couple of pics of this weeks hunt. I, being partially handicapped in mobility, really appreciate the extra mile you and your son Adam and his friend Tim went so I would have a successful hunt. As always, the stay at Double D for me and my wife, was excellent. Hope to see you at the picnic or this fall.

Yours truly-

Hi Dannie, Nina, and Adam,

As usual the seven hunters that I sent down this weekend had an excellent hunt. While I couldn’t go this time because of health reasons, I sure do feel like I was there from the excitement and furvor that they are sharing and reliving to me their “wild boar hunt.” This was the 16th or 17th year that I have scheduled a hunt with you and you have continued to surpass all other years when I didn’t think that possible. The animals were bigger, meaner, and hardier than ever and along with a few breathtaking charges that my repeat customers told me that they got more than their moneys worth.

God Bless,
Bill Norton


 

Date: 16 April 2012

Dannie,

Thanks for an excellent hunt! Your family, guides, lodging and equipment are as good as it gets. The boar I took was a monster and all the other game I saw has me thinking I should get another freezer. I have never had my kill professionally processed, packaged, labeled and ready to go so quickly! From the minute I rolled in until I left, I was completely impressed.

Thanks again,
Chris Tirey


 

Date: 14 April 2012

We all had a great time, this was the first time we were able to all get together for a hunt since my accident. You guys are great hosts your accommodations were very comfortable and your outdoor set up made for a great time to hang out and get to know the other hunters and swap a few stories. You and your family are great and enjoyed meeting you all. Gavin and I are already thinking of planning an axis hunt as soon as we can. Your guides and son are some good ol boys and enjoyed being with them and them putting up with a hobbling fat guy.

The kids and I just wanted to thank you for a great weekend. check out Gavins video he did a good job putting it together.

Thanks again

Thanks for a great weekend of boar hunting. The five of us thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the trip.

Having experienced the ranch for the first time, I’m now looking forward to returning to harvest several animals: 1) Water Buffalo 2) Axis 3) Monster Russian Boar.
Additionally, your tip to take Rt 35 vice Map Quest saved 1.5 hours of travel time…
