Hunter: William R. Wolfe



Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: Won't return!

I saw a few deer but my impression that the main thrust of this operation is to make money! According to Gary Michl "The guides are extremely well paid", this made me feel good when I have over $400 a day into this trip and am not seeing squat! My advice is ask more pointed questions and assume nothing! Like how many deer are killed with bows? How many of the heads and pictures used on your web site actually came from your property? Out of eleven hunters one guy harvested a nice buck, I saw two nice bucks on someone else's property as we rode into our stand locations. The weather was great frosty mornings, no wind but no bucks either. Maybe I just had a poor experience but it won't happen again at this outfitter!
