Would Recommend: absolutely not!

Overall Impression: terrible

I hunted during the RUT, i never raised my bow in 6 days of hunting. The guides could care less which way the wind is blowing when they put you in your stand.All of the stands were grossly OVERHUNTED! We had one hunter get in his stand, and after 15 or 20 minutes saw some blood on the ground,got down to check it out and found a blood trail and footprints, only to find out later that someone had killed a deer in that same stand the AFTERNOON before. This is nothing but a "production line operation" of taking your money, putting you out on a stand reguardless of wind direction or previous hunting pressure and sending you on your way. We too had one of the guides kill a deer which i think is wrong, and all of the guides also stated that they only do this so they can hunt during gun season, Stacey does not pay the guides any money, just hunting rights later in the season. The camp i was in had 14 hunters (they have 4 total camps with this many hunters EACH WEEK)and there were only 2 deer killed, and this was DURING THE RUT! Please look elsewhere if you want to kill a trophy deer and get your moneys worth. THe food also sucked!, i think they bought supper at the local supermarket deli, cold cereal for breakfast, and if you were lucky, bad sandwiches for lunch. HUNT HERE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU WANT TO THROW AWAY OVER 3,000 DOLLARS.
