I was successful in taking my two longbeards on this hunt, but the outfitter was arrogant and overbearing. A hunter from Pennsylvania (police officer) had taken his "first" turkey ever, was delighted to have it, and was even going to have it mounted. It was a jake. The outfitter gathered all the hunters together and chastised and belittled this poor guy for taking a jake. I knew something was wrong when we arrived and he demanded his money up front, even before we unpacked, and then proceded to inform us that the kitchen was off limits to the hunters. The turkey hunt was advertised as a turkey, hog, and bobcat hunt. I didn't care about the hogs or bobcats, but the other hunters in camp had come to hunt hogs too. There were no hogs seen. When asked where the hogs were, the guides explained that they were there, but it was the wrong time of year to see them - yeah right! We saw one bobcat on the side of the road while driving back at night and he quickly stopped the truck and wanted us to shoot it. We didn't, and he chewed us out. Deer hunters beware, I only saw a few does while turkey hunting.
