Craig M. Lemke, 49


C&L Hunts Outfitter and Guide Service started years ago as a dream that Craig Lemke and his father Larry Lemke had. The Lemke family has a long history of hunting and Craig was taught everything his grandfather Al Lemke and his father Larry Lemke knew about hunting. Craig surpassed them both.

Early in 2009, Craig had a couple of bouts with some sickness that ultimately was diagnosed as Small Cell Lung Cancer. He went into treatment and just when things seemed to be looking positive, he had an appendectomy. It was downhill from there. He died on the 17th of October, 2009.

Craig's wife Whitney and his father Larry promised Craig they would do everything possible to live out Craig's dream. One of Craig and Whitney's good friends was a guide for C&L Hunts. Harold (Junior) J. Harris Jr took the outfitter test and was the certified outfitter to continue the business as Craig had envisioned it. In recognition of that, the name of the business was changed to CHL Hunts, LLC. Larry was certified as an outfitter for the 2012/2013 hunting year and the name was changed to L&C Hunts, LLC. L&C Hunts, LLC will continue to operate with the same outstanding guides that Craig had for years. You can be assured that you will receive a top notch hunt. We dedicate our future to Craig and the outstanding service that he provided to his clients.
