December,22 - Cleveland,Tn
Just want to say thanks to Premier outfitters and to my guide Jay they where both the best .I was lucky enough to harvest a mature buck with a huge neck on the late season muzzle loader . Counting the days down until next years hunt ,Don Mccoy
7 long days with all day sits in Kentucky, on the last evening hunt, at the last hour, time and patience paid off! I had such a wonderful time in the deer woods for 7 days, but this is just icing on the cake. I've been hunting all of my life but I feel that I learned so much more about deer hunting on this trip.
Thank you to Premier Outfitters for the opportunity to learn more about my passion. Thank you to Jay for his knowledge and "unending" help to harvest a buck of a lifetime!
Top notch operation Would recommend to anyone that wanted to hunt Western Kentucky. Accommodations food and quality of animal exceeded all expectations!!
Absolutely an amazing hunt! Saw over 67 deer in 4.5 days and 4 shooters. I shot at and missed a 160 or better class deer. Others were out of range for compound bow. All in all, had an amazing time. Guides were top notch and food was absolutely amazing every day! Brian the cook packed us lunches to take out every morning! Mark the owner makes you feel right at home and if we needed anything he or the guides did not hesitate to help! Guys at camp were a great bunch! We all exchanged numbers to keep in touch to hunt together some more! Can't wait to go back for 2023 season!!
This marks the sixth year I have hunted with Premier Outfitters. Having hunted in many states over 60+ years I landed with an exceptional outfitter. Mark and his guides go above and beyond to make you feel like family, put you in the best position to harvest a quality buck and feed you well. I would not keep returning if I did not believe the experience to be superior. Yes, I am heading back next year!
Mark, I hope your trip home went well and that you and the family are ready for a great Thanksgiving. I just wanted to thank you again for your hospitality and thank you for running a top notch organization. I have been on many hunts and in many camps over 30 years and what you have is special.
I want to take the time to pass on to you my experience(s) from my recent hunt with Premier Outfitters---19-22 Nov 2022. From the moment we arrived at the lodge our experience was top notch. Phillis was thorough and wonderful. All lodge support was fantastic!
Walter Siebenthal (my hunting partner) and I both had Jay Heiserman as our guide. Jay was genuinely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. His attention to detail was amazing. His knowledge of the hunt area, deer activity, deer descriptions, etc., was a pleasure to behold and experience. It made our hunt! Every hunter in our group saw shooters. 2 took shots. And one, me, killed a huge 4 ½ year old buck. 230+ lbs! 11 points! It was by far the largest deer I have ever shot. None of this would have been possible without the patience and expertise of Jay!
I also had multiple opportunities to interact with and get to know Thad and Justin. They to were wonderful! Friendly, knowledgeable, communicative, and always willing to help! The 3 of them (Jay, Thad, and Justin) worked amazing together.
If we can have Jay as our guide again, Walter and I would like to come back in Nov 2023 and we are bringing another friend/hunter!
Thank you for a top-notch great hunting experience.
Hope to see you next November!

I just returned from the first gun hunt with Premier Outfitters, and I wanted to drop you a note to tell you how awesome a time I had hunting with Clint, Jay, and Micah. Those guys are top notch, and I really cannot give them enough kudos for the way they ran the deer camp. Clint was my guide, and he did a superb job in placing me on the right stand and providing the right information for me. Day one of the hunt I did have a verified shooter come within 25 yards, but I passed as I was looking for a specific buck. Although I did not get a buck, the overall experience was truly a blast! The environment and atmosphere in the “north” camp was fantastic, as was the food and camaraderie of the staff and other hunters. This was my second hunt with your outfit, and I have to say, this one was even better than the first and the first one was great! I have been on several guided deer hunts with several different outfitters and without a doubt, this one was the best that I have ever been on. I may not be able to book again for ’23 as I have a couple of other hunts working but I am certainly looking at 2024 and if I do, I certainly want to go back and hunt with Clint.
Thanks for having such a great outfit and hope you have a great holiday season.
Good morning Mark, thanks again for having Nick and I, and sharing Kentucky’s incredible deer and landscape. This was a great reset for both of us with memories that will last forever. I think you know but this was our first experience hunting with an outfitter and it exceeded our expectations. You have done an outstanding job putting all of it together. I see now that there is a crazy amount of time and management that goes into running your business, and I’m happy we picked Premier Outfitters. The folks you have hired are top notch good people and fun to share experiences with.
Very nice job !!!
I put the check in the mail for ext year.
Mark, I really don’t know what to say the guides the operation and the management is top notch I can’t say enough and thank you doesn’t mean anything I very much appreciate the opportunity sir really do I was lucky enough to punch my tag on my biggest buck to date and I wouldn’t have done it without you. 2 year wait for an hour in the stand snow cold Could ask for a better hunt. Thank you sir
December muzzleloader 2021
Just finished up the late muzzleloader hunt at Premier Outfitters and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a Midwest whitetail hunt. We didn’t have the best weather with probably 4” of rain the first two days but still saw lots of deer everyday including tons of doe’s and some good bucks. The late season can be tough with bucks run down from the rut and weather being a big factor but the guys do their homework and will put you on deer if you meet them halfway by hunting hard & listening to their advice. Caleb and Jay were awesome guides and super fun just to talk deer with. We most certainly would come back and hunt with these guys again!
Fall 2021 (Rifle Rut) - Mayville, NY
Mark & Eric, I want to thank you for the great hunt and awesome memories. 2021 was my first year ever doing a guided hunt. I could not have picked a better team!! Eric put me in a great spot and I was fortunate enough to shoot my biggest deer on the first day. Deer were plentiful and saw another shooter days later. I cannot express enough gratitude for being able to get a clean shot on a trophy deer. Then being able to shoot two additional does for my freezer. Your operation is top notch. Brian's food was awesome and I really enjoyed spending the down time with Eric, Hal and Kyle. I will defiantly be back for another hunt. God Bless and thank you again.

Hello Mark and Shea

This was my third hunt at Premier. On every hunt , they have done everything possible to make my hunt enjoyable. Mark,Caleb,Dallyn,Clint,Thad, Jay and Phyllis are all great. They work hard to make you feel welcome and have an enjoyable successful hunt. I consider them friends and can't wait to take my son turkey hunting this spring and then be back opening day of Bow Season chasing a Big Mature Buck!
Rut bow hunt
Mark Clifford and his staff work tirelessly to put you on a mature buck . Marks staff is very knowledgeable and will do all they can to make sure you are comfortable in identifying a mature buck before you go to the stand . The accommodations are second to none and the southern style meals are the prefect end to a long day in the stand . I have hunted with many outfitters so I can say with confidence that Premier Outfitters is the best you will not be disappointed .

Rut Bow Hunt
I just want to say that I have been to many places hunting whitetail deer in the country and this was far the most professional hunt that I have been on. I passed on 3 shooters early and had the opportunity on my last day but could not get my buck stopped for a shot. I would like to thank mark and also my guide Kyle for an amazing hunt I surely will be back soon.

Rut bow hunt
Wow what a trip we had! Gonna remember this one for ever. And yes your staff works tirelessly for all the hunters in camp. I got to see what went on behind the scenes after the guides drop the hunters off, needless to say they don’t just go back to camp and sit around. They are working from the time the hunters are dropped off till there picked back up. My hats are off to them. Yes sir we have made family friends with all of you and we plan on making many more memories in the future. Thanks to all at premier for a great job!
The hunt was great, and I obviously couldn’t be happier with the deer I took home. You guys do a really nice job. The preparation is apparent and the guides seemed to be just as vested (if not more) as the hunters in putting deer on the ground. I have a few hunts planned already for the next couple years but will be coming back and bringing some more people with me. I’d like to try the rut down there. but like the early season hunt too much!!
We had an absolute blast, the camp and food was great, your guides offered us help with anything we needed, and we harvested two
great bucks! Our trip literally could not have been any better! It is clear that you all take a lot of pride in what you do and have no
issue with putting in a lot of hard work.
Mom and I definitely want to save our spots for the 2021 hunt. Please let me know what you need from me to do that.
I’m sure as you have read many other reviews this place is legit and absolutely amazing! If your looking for the hands down best place to go on your next hunt this is the place. Mark and his crew will do everything in their power to put you on some truly nice bucks. It wasn’t uncommon for me to see 15-20 deer in a full days sit. Their guides work their butts off from the time before you get till you leave to make sure your taken care of. I would definitely recommend Premier Outfitters... so much so I booked a hunt for next year before I left!

I have visited many whitetail outfitters across several states. I can confidently say Premier Outfitters is the best of the best. From the moment you walk in the door you are treated like family. The entire Premier team go above and beyond to make your hunt a pleasurable one. The food and accommodations are excellent. Our guide Clint went above and beyond to put us on trophy whitetail. Each member of my group saw shooter bucks. I was fortunate enough to harvest a 154” 9 point the first sit. I believe out of the 12 hunters in camp there was 7 or 8 bucks taken. Excellent four days of rut activity! Fair chase hunting is never a guarantee, but Mark and his team work hard to make your hunt a success. I will definitely be going back! Many thanks Premier Outfitters!!
It was a great hunt, stand setups were well thought out and placed. Had lots of deer and turkeys within bow range just not the one I was looking for. Lodge and food were good if you went hungry it was your own fault. Overall this was a great hunt I've been home 12 hours and we booked a November hunt for next year.
Ben Negus AL
First class outfitter with great lodging and guides.. Mark runs a top notch outfitter and I would recommend premier to anyone looking for a place to go deer or turkey hunting.. group of 7 of us killed 13 birds in 2 1/2 days and had couple missed opportunities that would have tagged out all of us.
Jesse Arndt WI
This was the second velvet hunt consecutive years for my wife and I and we couldn’t be more happy . Mark Cliffard and his guides work there tails off for every hunter in camp . The guides had pics of the shooter buck we would be hunting and they weren’t lying because we shot those exact deer . The attention to detail is second to none on each and every stand location. Premier outfitters is the real deal . I’ll be back again and again.
Troy Biddle IL
Premier Outfitters offers a truly great hunting experience.Seasoned hunters understand how difficult early September transitional hunts can be and my guide and Premier Outfitters put in the time to allow us to capitalize on the current trophy buck patterns that were going to change any day. They had a plan and we worked the plan. Things worked out very well. Our group is already booked again for next year.
Justin Bowles NC
Best outfitter Ive ever been to! Would recommend to anyone, treated like family and they truly care about their clients!
Bob Schuman PA.
This was my second year hunting with Priemer Outfitters and will not be my last. Upon arrival at camp the staff make you feel like family, you will soon realize the wealth of knowledge from the owner Mark Clifford and his team of guides. I cannot say enough good things about the lodge and camp cook. If you are looking for a great whitetail hunt Priemer Outfitters is the place to be. I am already booked for next year and counting the days till I’m back in one of there we’ll placed stands. Thanks again Mark Clifford!
Shane Shires N.C
This was my second hunt at premier. I sought them out to have a chance at huge mature Midwest whitetails .I live where high scoring bucks are slim to none. Mark and his guys put me on them both trips .Unfortunately I missed on my first hunt and made a bad shot on my second hunt. On this hunt I saw 3 Mature bucks ,a 8, 9 and 10pt.The big 8 presented a shot and I took it. But, I missed my mark and made a bad shot. Marks guys have exceeding my expectations both times and even though I left empty handed, my fault, I have enjoyed everything about the hunt. I consider these guys my friends and Lord willing, I will continue to hunt with them year after year. I will be returning in November to try and break my "curse" and again in turkey season with my son for a hunt. These guys are top notch all the way! I seen a ton of deer , passed on some beautiful 3.5 year olds and got opportunities on MATURE bucks. If you want to hunt western Kentucky, do yourself a favor and book with Premier Outfitters! The name says it all!!!
Premier Outfitters of Western Kentucky is a top notch outfitter with high quality whitetail bucks. I have hunted all of the country and I circle this hunt every year on my calendar. Mark and Kyle and Premier have been so good to me . I have taken a 150" + buck in back to back years. I highly recommend anyone who is wanting to hunt Kentucky to make this place your number one choice!
Early season archery
Best place I have ever hunted Mark does a wonderful job at Premier and his guides Kyle and Caleb are world class they have a passion for people to harvest mature white tails I promise you won’t find anybody who works harder than them at putting you in the best places I will be back for years to come!
