Overall Impression: rip-off con-artist at work

This hunt was a rip-off plain and simple. In my opinion the outfitter and guide make a great scam team. If after reading this you still want to book with Charlie, you had better get his rules in writing and have them notarized, because he changes them. His "guide" takes you to your ground blind (all blinds were ground blinds), spreads a little corn and then comes back to gets you. He was extremely late in doing that for two of the morning hunts. Apparently no one had shot anything at this "ranch" this year because while cleaning a very immature 8 point with a 13" spread that one guy had shot, he had to dump some old toys and junk out of an old cooler to use as a catch tub. There was an argument about this 8 pointer being too small and not mature even though the horns were outside the ears. It was just a whole bunch of little things that weren't right that made this hunt a nightmare. One hunter ask the guide to spread more corn as the deer would come out, eat what was there and leave. What guide in his right mind wouldn't do that, unless he didn't want to spend any more money then absolutely necessary. You hunters out there know that it is all the little things that when done right, make for a great hunt. I honestly believe that Charlie and his guide paid no attention to the little things as their minds were only on one big thing; Our money.
