Overall Impression: Low Budget Operation

My "Guides" name was LEO and he was the biggest loser scumbag I have ever met. Absolutely not a bowhunter! First night in camp he tells us he doesn't hunt deer sign, pay attention to scent control, or worry about wind direction. This man is not a guide. He is only interested in hunting for himself and could give a rats behind about providing a service to his customers. Wouldn't tell any of us what deer were in the area, where the bedding areas were, what to expect in each area. He only wanted you to tell him what you saw and when you saw it, so that he could then hunt that deer. This camp has been in operation for 17 years and they still haven't hung even a towel rack on the wall in the bathroom. Even a hook to hang your towel would be nice. Beds were constructed 2 x 4 lumber with no mattress. I think after seventeen years they could have hit a few garage sales and picked up something you could actually sleep on. You were allowed to hang one stand and were expected to stay in it for 6 days! Any real bowhunter knows that is a recipe for defeat. Never Again!
