"Dodge Outfitter Of The Year - 2004"
Chestnut Hunting Lodge - Taylorsville, NC
Article from the North American Hunting Club Magazine
August 2005

When NAHC life member David Sapp of Kettering, Ohio decided he wanted to go on a wild boar hunt last fall, he could've chosen to save a little money by hunting with an outfitter close to home, but instead he chose to travel to North Carolina to hunt with Jerry Rushing of Chestnut Hunting Lodge.
"Although there are several outfitters closer to home, I chose to hunt with Chestnut Hunting Lodge because of its good reputation and willingness to help hunters harvest a boar," Sapp said. "Chestnut Hunting Lodge is definitely #1 in my book and will get many repeat visits from me!"
