Overall Impression: POOR

Me and a buddy purchased a hunt from Dan on ebay. We were told that there would be 4 of us in camp for hunts outside the fence. There was about 10. I had spoken with other hunters previous to my hunt and was giving the bad news, that it was bogus. So before we even got there our hunt was basically ruined and our money was wasted. Everything that I was told from the previous hunters turned out to be true. Dan can talk crap with the best of them and make you a believer. Even the hunters inside the fence were scammed. He had advertised 150 class bucks for these guys and, believe me, the 150's were there but he wouldn't let the hunters take any. One night a fistfight almost broke out between outfitter and hunters...it was crazy. He also lied about which counties we would be hunting. So anyways, back to my hunt...the first morning I DID see a quality buck and 2 does. I saw 1 more doe the rest of the hunt. My buddy saw about 5 or 6 small bucks, but no wallhangers the whole week. We were fortunate TO SEE WHAT WE HAD, because I think half the hunters had already cut their hunts short and left for home,because they weren't seeing anything. Dan did offer us a free hunt the following year. No thanks. I by no means endorse this outfitter.
