Overall Impression: Poor

Third time hunting with this outfitter. First two times deer were moving on this outfitters limited property and I was successful. This year there was no deer movement on outfitter's one quarter section of hunting property and the outfitter, who also acted as the guide, just sat in his truck all week smoking cigarettes. This is an outfitter who will do absolutely nothing extra to insure hunters success. He acts as the guide to save money. He hunts the same stands year in and year out and is physically unable to do much more than sit in his truck and smoke. If you get lucky you may get a chance at a big deer--but it will be strictly luck as this outfitter will do nothing once he's got your money. Be prepared to sit and see nothing for a solid week and do not expect this outfitter to be anything but lazy. Did I mention that he chain smokes on the way to and from dropping you off at your stand? And that's if the snow isn't to deep for him to drive you in. On one day of the hunt I had to walk almost a mile through 2 feet of snow to get to my stand as this guy was unprepared to get me into the stand because of the conditions. It was walk in or sit in the truck with him smoking all day.I would stay away from this outfitter if you expect anything more than a cab ride to your stand. There will be no extra effort so do not expect it.
