Would Recommend: Never!

Overall Impression: Very Poor

For starters I hunted the last week in October the 2004 season. It was a full moon that week and I don't like hunting a full moon however I was advised by Ryan to hunt that week other than the 3rd week in Nov b/c he was booked the first two weeks on Nov and the pressure would be low at this time. This was a bowhunting only outfitter but after I got there and asked a few questions I found out that the deer on his website was killed by family members in shotgun season on the property that is bowhunting only. I told Ryan before I got there that I didn't want to hunt a farm with standing corn and I got there to hunt the only farm with standing corn. The guide I had didn't know the weather either. When the weather man said a north wind he thought the wind was blowing into the North so for the first couple of days this guy put me on the wrong wind until I convinced him he was wrong. What few deer I did see they acted like they where really spooky. The other guy that was hunting the farm with me didn't see but 1 deer a yearling doe and went home 2 days early b/c he had enough. I would not hunt there again under no circumstances, and as for the owner Ryan if you like giving your money to a snotty nosed brat then sign up with him.
