Cherokee Run Testimonials

Thanks to Tom Naumann and Cherokee Run Hunting Lodge in Chesterfield, SC!! This was our fourth trip down in the last two years. This time around we went for an early season hunt and my 15 year old son harvested his first deer...a bruiser we've nicknamed Buckzilla! Huge bodied, over 200 lbs, mature 10 pointer. Tom helped teach him to skin and cape and carred him through all aspects of the post-harvest procedures. Mr. Naumann provides comforable accomodations with all the basic amenities of home. It's everything good about hunting and tradition in families.

Tom and his Team at Cherokee Run are absolutely phenomenal and I highly
recommend them if you are looking for a fun and rewarding hunting
experience. The atmosphere they create at Cherokee Run is first rate
and they make you feel like family and right at home. They were willing
and able to accommodate my hunting dates due to my demanding work and
overseas travel schedule. I had a great time on both occasions I hunted
at Cherokee Run. If you get the chance, go and hunt with Tom and his
Team.

Hunting with Tom Naumann at Cherokee Run was truly a memorable experience. The accommodations were comfortable and the hospitality of Tom and his staff were second to none. As for the hunting at Cherokee Run, there wasn't a day that game didn't pass by my stand. Deer, Turkey's and Wild Hogs were at an abundance around my stand and it seemed to be the same way for everyone as we all exchanged hunting experiences in the evening hours. The amount and quality of game seen while at Cherokee Run seemed to be a reflection of the time and dedication put forth by Tom and his staff. I would definitely recommend Cherokee Run for any one interested in a "fair chase" hunt with and abundance of free ranging game. I plan on making Cherokee Run and annual outing and I'm sure if you give them a try you will do the same.

I would highly recommend a trip to Cherokee Run. Tom Naumann and his family are great to deal with and he is the only hunting lodge owner that has ever kept in contact with me after the hunt. I enjoy the occasional updates and when I talk about him I call him my friend Tom. The lodge is very comfortable with enough room for large groups and it would be a great place to bring your kids to bond with them during a hunt. They have a great practice range next to the lodge along with stocked fishing ponds which have some really good fish in them. They have some great hunting locations and the stands are very comfortable. Our guide was very friendly and helpful and went out of his way to stop and pick up disc for my camcorder while I was hunting. We look forward to returning as soon as possible.

For me, the hunt was an awesome experience. Simply going into a new
environment (much different than the Midwest) and seeing different
habitat, and different kinds of wild game was a great experience to
look forward to each time we went out on stand. Also, because the
purpose of this trip for me was about more than just a hunt, I felt
the Lord certainly directed us to Cherokee Run. If honesty and
integrity are important qualities to you, then you need to certainly
consider contacting Tom Naumann and booking a hunt that will be a fun
and memorable experience. I am already planning my next hunt at
Cherokee Run with my second eldest son for this coming spring.
