Overall Impression: It Sucked !!!

I arrived in camp after a long drive at the designated arrival time only to be told that my room was not ready or cleaned yet and my sheets were being washed.After a couple of hours of waiting it was finally ready,they said,however upon entering the room the floors were dirty and the previous hunters trash was still in the waste can.The owner had let most of the food run out and had to make a run to town to get more,which was low quality compared to other camps I have been to.The first night was like being at a frat house party with people running up and down the halls outside the rooms screaming and practicing turkey calls until 2 a.m. The first morning out hunting we had at daylight several toms gobble but the guide would not call to them after they flew down, and when he did he would call so low that I could only slightly hear him behind me.So I began calling on my own and had a Tom respond hot,but the guide told me not to call anymore ,it would spook the gobbler !! I then saw the Tom at 30 yards coming around some brush where it would have presented a shot at 20 yards in a opening and my guide stands up and begans glassing the other end of a corn field !!!! Needless to say the bird was gone. The next day was worse as we set up again , my guide falls asleep only waking up when I tried calling to remind me not to call and spook the birds then he goes back to sleep!!!When ask about his experience, this was his first year guiding here for turkeys.When we got back to camp(MISSOURI ONLY ALLOWS TURKEY HUTING UNTIL 1 P.M.) I packed up and came home instead of hunting the third day with this guide that has less experience that I do.Not sure about the deer hunts this outfitter offers, but be carful which turkey guide you get and bring your own cooler of food!!!
