Would Recommend: Absolutely not!

Overall Impression: very disappointed!

I booked a gun hunt after several conversations with Kevin.I was told he had 80% opportunity on 135" class deer. I also asked on several occasions if he had ladder stands as I am not comfortable hunting out of lock ons. I was assured he had over 85 ladder stands and it would be no problem. I arrive for my hunt and am put up in a 100 year old dirty farmhouse with 1 toilet that I have to share with 9 other guys. You cannot drink or brush your teeth with the water because it is so full of iron. The shower is completely disgusting and you stink more when you come out of the shower than when you go in due to the water. You have cereal for breakfast have to pack your own lunch and the evening meal is brought in my a local vendor but is always cold until it gets to you. Now for the hunting.. first off all of the guides hunt ! If fact, I had to drop Kevin , the owner, off at his stand on the way to my stand on the opening morning !!! I was stuck in a shooting house in the middle of a field for the first two days. The largest buck I saw was about 110" I then had to ask to be moved on the third day and was placed approx. 100 yards from another hunter and never saw a deer the entire day. Hunters stay away , this guy is a crook and according to his "guides" who talk way too much he is also a poacher!
