Would Recommend: never

Overall Impression: very poor

The first morning of our hunt in a "trophy, bow only area" opened with lead shot from goose hunters literally raining down on my partner's head. After sun up I noticed a dead four pointer laying 10 yards from my stand (as it turns out, the week prior to our arrival, a group of guides hunted this area with shotguns to "clean out" some of the does). Nearly every stand had cig. butts and candy wrappers in and around them. We saw very few animals, and neither of us even came close to having a shot in three full days of hunting. In my opinion the outfitter shuffles hunters through like cattle with no individual preparations being made for the arrival of individual hunters in regards to new stand placements/scouting. DON'T WAIST YOUR TIME AND MONEY LIKE I DID ON THIS HUNT! I found no satisfaction in talking to the owner about the problems I listed above either. He simply tried to explain most of them away.
