"I want to thank all of you for making our hunt the success that it was. I couldnt imagine going any other place. Your hospitality and cooking made us feel at home. I feel like I owe you. Driving down to your place all I heard was " are we there yet ?", on the way home it was " when are we going back ?". We look forward to returning. I sent some pics as well for you to use as you wish.
Thanks again Brandon, Alycia and Mike Burks"
"Just wanted to send a special Thank You to all of the tall pines family for making Joshua's 1st hunting experience such a great one.He enjoyed hunting more than he ever thought he would,and he is so proud of his hog. As for me getting to hunt with one of my sons has filled an empty spot in my life, I've waited a long time for that wonderful experience.The hunting was worth every penny, but hearing my son explain how amazed he was that a family (that did not know us)could welcome us into their home an treat us with so much hospitality was priceless. Thanks again for the great hunting memory, and a sincere thank you for showing my son the true meaning of "good people".

In Memory of Gregg White June 7, 1964 - September 30, 2012
Paul Gregory (Gregg) White passed away on September 30, 2012 in Katy, TX. He was born on June 7, 1964 in Louisville, Kentucky to Ethel and George White. Gregg was an avid outdoors person all of his life. His personal joy was fishing and hunting with his friends, family and business acquaintances, often times with their young children. After a trip he was always most proud of his outdoor cooking and sharing with others. Gregg was a General Manager of Supreme Electrical Service of Houston, TX. His enthusiasm for life was contagious. He lived life to the fullest, sharing that life with Kimberly and their beloved dogs, Bullet and BeBe.
Til we meet again... We love you, Keith, Sheri, Madelyn & Kole
