---To the staff at Chariton Valley Outfitters,
I have been fortunate enough to hunt the whitetail deer from Canada, thoughout the Midwest and accross the Southeast. In my opinion the area and land that you manage and your outfitting business are some of the best the whitetail world as to offer. While hunting with C.V.O I had a great adventure, killed a buck and the food and lodging were excellent.
During the past gun season your operation had a 75-80% kill ratio on mature bucks, such success speaks for itself. Thank you for the great hunt.
I look forward to hunting with you again soon and would recommend your outfitting services to anyone wishing to hunt the giant whitetails of the Midwest.

Just a quick note in regards to the Iowa muzzleloader hunt I just returned from. Although I was not successful in harvesting a deer, it was one of the most enjoyable hunting experiences I have ever had. From the time I walked in the door till the time I left I was treated like family. Both guides (Curly and Scott) were attentive to all my hunting needs and put me in great looking spots where I did see a lot of deer. The farms I hunted on looked top notch, were full of deer sign, and I think if the weather would have been more cooperative the outcome would have been different. The food was absolutely outstanding as Shalita and Lavona prepared wonderful home cooked meals every night. Best of all was the conversations with everyone after the hunt, especially with Marvin. Marvin has a way with people and made me feel like I was truly part of the family.
A big thank you to Marvin, Shalita, Curly, Scott, Lavona, and the rest of the Chariton Valley Outfitter Crew for making me feel so welcome and making my hunt a memorable experience I will never forget. I can't wait to get back.
