Took me a long time to post this but noticed on OHio Valley Guide Service's web page it has had 45,000 visitors and want to make sure no one else gets caught with this outfit. Was called several days before a bowhunt which was fully paid that "Curt" the owner would not be at hunt for first few days due to an "emergency" sportsmen's show he had to attend in PA. But Curt assured me I would be taken care of by one of his guides. Well one of his guides met me at a McDonald's in Ohio and it was Curt's father who I figure was at least 70 years old driving a dodge neon. The "camp" was supposedly booked with other hunters. Needless to say I was the only one in camp. Almost forgot to mention the "camp" The camp was a job trailer that was also shared with 2-3 immigrant non english speaking workers who would come back at 1:00am from who knows where making all kinds of racket. I was basically given a four wheeler, a very old man for a guide who met me on the first day, a job trailer to sleep in and that was it. Curt showed up from his emergency sportsmen's show and wanted to know why I was leaving a few days early. I have been on a lot of hunts and some were not that good at all. But this one has me mad enough five years later to make sure no one else gets burned. Stay away from Ohio Valley Guide Service. If you want give me your $1500 and I will have my 83 year old grandmother guide you for some really big bucks here in Massachusetts. Ohio Valley Guide Servce Wellston, OH Tel.# 740-384-5289
