Overall Impression: fair

Hunted for muleys in Nov 2004. Steve was adamant about not shooting that 22" buck in the first two days, but even that never appeared. Saw one good whitetail, on day 4, but it was shot at by other hunters and chased off before we could set up. Guides were local and very familiar with the area, but the muleys just weren't there. The food was below par. Three other hunters there at the same time all took small bucks (all below 120"). Nothing you'd need a service to harvest. The major problem seemed to be interference from others, even though we were always on private land. Eliminate that and the hunt may be successful. The guides certainly tried their best under the circumstances.
