Would Recommend: Absolutely not

Overall Impression: Extremely disappointing

I've hunted quite a few places down south and Bent Creek was by far the worst. Guides and staff had little to no interaction with hunters (until it was time to pay our balance). They never shared any information about where we would be hunting, famaliarized us with the geographic location, or gave us any tips for the particular stands or blinds we would be stationed in. They were chauffeurs, not guides. It was also obvious that the stands and blinds were not being rotated and they were being used day after day. This was evident by the garbage and shell cases left in and around every stand and blind i occupied. One hunter in my group lost his drivers license one afternoon and a hunter from another group found it in the blind he was in the next afternoon. During my 3 day hunt i saw 1 button buck, 4 does, and one buck with 3 points on one side an 1 spike on the other. I don't rate an outfitter by success alone, but the lack of game we saw combined with the unprofessional attitudes of guides and staff made my experience at Bent Creek extremely disappointing.
