Nothing Larry said was true. We signed a year-round lease with him. We were supposed to have the rights to all legal game as stated by TPWD. On numerous occasions we caught him with other hunters on the property. He let another outfitter come in with his clients to shoot some axis deer. Under no circumstances would I believe anything Larry or his family says. They vandalized some or our hunting equipment when they held a family party at the camp grounds. The drinking got out of control and they tried to start a four wheeler with a screw driver. He told us we couldn't hunt the extended doe season because it was a special season, but once we reviewed the contract that he set forth and signed he reconsidered and promised he would not bring in the group of hunters he had scheduled to bring in. Needless to say, the last weekend of doe season he brought in 15 hunters that drove all over the ranch shooting at every doe they saw. This was very dangerous as we were hunting in our stands and they had no idea where we were. Someone could have been killed easily by a stray bullet.
