I had a great time at HCL and am looking forward to making it a yearly tradition! The facilities are awesome, and the food was great. The guides all make everyone feel right at home. I highly recommend HCL for anyone from a first time hunter to a seasoned pro!

Awesome place, friendly people, and excellent hunts with great Guides, First class lodge!
I had my second hunt at Hurricane Creek Dec 6-9 and it was even better than my first. I shot a nice 11 point and had a great time. The guides are great and the food is fantastic. I have already booked another hunt for next year. Big thank you to Dee and the crew for going the extra mile to give me some great memories!
Hurricane Creek Lodge is one of the greatest places I’ve ever had the privilege to visit. The accommodations are immaculate, the food is delicious and the deer hunting is second to none. Dee Murphy and his expert guides make you feel right at home from the second you pull through the gate. There is no attention to detail that is overlooked at Hurricane Creek. Dee and his guides helped me harvest my best buck not only once, but twice in consecutive years. I would highly recommend this superb operation to anyone looking for the trip of a lifetime. Thank you Dee!
I had a great time at Hurricane Creek Lodge in North Alabama on this Iron Bowl weekend. The folks’ hospitality made the place memorable and fun-filled! I had many opportunities to watch different deer come into the food plots, waiting on the perfect one. On the evening of day two I saw this deer, but unfortunately he never came into range. After the morning of day three, I was told they saw the same deer bedded down. We decided to go check and see if he was still there, low and behold he was. It took me a few times to get the perfect angle, but once I did, I nailed him! I want to give a big shoutout to my guide, Tyler and this extremely impressive lodge. Thank y’all for this opportunity, I will definitely be back!
Afternoon hunt took us to a ground blind that was surrounded by deer not long before dark. Tyler, my guide was absolutely awesome. The deer had us pinned down for about two hours. So many deer around us we simply couldn’t move. Finally we took a chance after seeing the buck I wanted and repositioned ourselves inside the ground blind without getting busted. The buck I wanted had already walked off by the time I got positioned to shoot. Five minutes later with very little daylight left he came back, and that’s the end of this story, now a memory I will share forever.
My hats off to Hurricane Creek Lodge in Vina, Alabama, Dee truly runs an awesome hunting lodge. Great food, awesome facilities, guides that bust their butts to make your hunt a great success, and plenty of trophy class bucks!!! Enjoyed my trip! ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!
Dee runs a top notch facility!!! HCL was an outstanding experience for myself and my wife!!! Very family friendly atmosphere!!! Great GM and guides!!! Will do all they can to put you on the deer of your dreams!! Believe me, they have em!!! Beautiful place, wonderful people and unbelievable dining!!! Booked a trip for next season before I left… IT’S THAT AWESOME!!!!!
Huge deer!!!! I highly recommend a hunt with them if you are looking for a monster!
Hands down our favorite place to go . We have been hunting with these guys for several years and think of them as family and they treat you like you were theirs . Todd, Dee and their staff will not disappoint you and you will have a memory that will last a lifetime!
Last year on my deer hunt in 2016 I decided to come back in April 2017 to turkey hunt. In all my years of hunting I had never bag a turkey. Well Dee you and your guides made it happen. I took a nice bird, about a 22 pound bird with a 9 inch beard. My wife came on the hunt to get in a little rest and that made it so much better for her to be there with me. We saw Toms every day . Thanks again for a great hunt and I will see you this up coming deer season.

Best place you could ever ask for, awesome deer and great people!
I had a fantastic time at Hurricane Creek. They tailored a hunt for my disabilities and I took a fat doe and would have had another if I hadn’t missed. lol. The guides are great and the food is out of the world. I honestly did not want to leave. I was pleased, I booked a hunt for 2018 before I left.
Top notch facilities. Down to earth people from the guides, cooks and GM. Highly recommend visiting won’t find a better place. Planning our next adventure @HCL as we speak.. We hunted the open range I personally didn’t see a deer but wife and kids did. We will try our luck in the trophy area next. Can’t wait to revisit this fine establishment. Thanks a lot HCL.
Great facility! The staff and owners are phenomenal!
I have had a wonderful time here. People and management were terrific. Beautiful place to hunt and get away. Hope to go again soon.
My family and I started going to HCL in 2010. Not only are the deer awesome, but the owners and staff are also great!! Not to mention the excellent food. The first year we went they welcomed us with open arms. We have been back every year except one (and dearly missed them then). We have developed a friendship that feels like family. They really know how to take care of you and will go above and beyond. We always look forward to going back every year. My kids love it as much as we do. HCL will not disappoint you at all!!
My hunt was over the Thanksgiving holidays and I can truly say this is the best hunt I have ever been on. My son and granddaughter were also on the same hunt. Not only did I bag a nice buck but she did also. Mine was a nice 7 point and hers was a big 9 point. The action is there if you want it. The lodge was great and the staff met ever need. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. I have already gave my deposit for the 2017 hunting season. I also am going back in April for a 2 day turkey hunt. Thanks again staff and all that made this such a great experience. See you in April.

Sitting on a tree stand right now as I am leaving after this mornings hunt. This has been awesome! First class ranch with first class people who are very knowledgeable. The terrain is amazing. The deer…never seen horns like that! Dee and his crew will do everything it takes to help you get the Buck your looking for. I got mine yesterday. Be prepared to eat and eat well. Hunt here and you won’t be sorry.
Top notch operation and wonderful people! Great hunting, great guides, wonderful food, beautiful lodge and property! Thanks for always taking care of my boys!

QUALITY!!! AMAZING FACILITIES!!GREAT STAFF!! BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS.
I just want to say thanks for the great hunt!! I shall never forget this hunt – it was most exciting!! You and your staff are first class in my book. Over supper last night, I discussed with family how diligent you and the rest of the gang were to recover the deer I shot. As I was telling them, it dawned on me that you guys didn’t have to go to such lengths but you did. You could have said “Oh well, we tried.” Instead, you were determined and for that, I say thanks and I look forward to many, many more hunts! I’m sold on the Hurricane Creek experience and despite the fact that I work in the same city in which Dream Ranch is located, I will be an avid promoter of HCL!
Thanks again and I’m already looking forward to next year…can’t wait!!!!
I love going to Hurricane Creek every year we had an awesome time this and the crew goes above and beyond to make sure you get the deer you want. Todd , Dee and all the guys do a great job to make sure that you have a good time the whole time. You have to check out.
Had a great weekend, and went home with EXACTLY what I came looking for! With such a huge property, it took a lot of searching and stalking, but Josh and Jason worked tirelessly to put me in position to take my shot. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable, and the facility was just great. Good people, good food, and great hunting. I can hardly wait till next year to come hunt again! Thanks guys!
