"In the modern sporting world it is not often 'the good old days' can be experienced today. Jim Faulstich provides an experience of refreshing simplicity in which nothing is lacking but the frills. Accommodations are comfortably understated while the true superlatives are deservedly earned by the hunt. Amazing numbers of exclusively wild, God's birds, hunted with good friends and better dogs in abundant habitat intelligently and attentively managed herald the earnest commitment of the proprietor to resource development and conservation. I have hunted all over the world and can honestly say that the quality of both the pheasants and the experience are of an integrity which I have not experienced elsewhere. It has insured my return from the beginning, year after year, as one of the charter members of this special club so privileged to share this remarkable sporting odyssey into a bygone era."
