Derrick reports that the hunting was not difficult, because hunters could drive into the hunting areas and walk in from the road. Once an animal was down, he says the folks who ran the camp were willing to come retrieve it if the hunter needed assistance. As for costs, Derrick says he paid only $1,000 for four days of hunting and accommodations, plus another $220 for licenses.
He does warn of several problems, however. First, he says many of the bulls had already dropped their antlers by the date of his hunt. Despite that, he says he was able to take a good "mountable" bull. Another problem was the behavior of some of the hunters in the field.

He also reports seeing a number of wounded animals that had not been followed up. All of this occurred despite a heavy presence of law enforcement officers patrolling the area. In spite of these unpleasant aspects, Derrick recommends the hunt for its low cost, for the exposure it provides to an abundance of animals and for the friendliness of the people running the camp.
