I met ANDY in ERIE,P.A. at an outdoor show. Where we talked over the piticulars etc. unfortionatly i was booked with anOTHER outfitter. I ALSO HAD HUNTED THE SURROUNDING AREA PREVEIOUSLY WITH OTHER OUTFITTERS. DO TO AN UNTIMELY PASSING OF MY HUNTING PARTNER I PANICKED AND BOOKED WITH ^%*$# OUTFITTING. THEN I SAW THIS OUTFITTER REVIEW WEB. SITE. I WANTED TO PUKE...AS I SAID I HAD HUNTED PIKE CO. FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS. ALL BY THE WAY WERE ALL GOOD HUNTS. I GOT IN TOUCH WITH YOUNG ANDY AND HE SAID HE COULD MAKE IT HAPPEN. AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT I WAS WORKING IN ILL. I CALLED AND ASKED IF I COULD SEE WHAT THE LAND HAD TO HOLD. ANDY WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO SHOW ME AROUND.HE DIDN'T HAVE TO BUT HE DID. I SAW PLENTY OF BIG BUCKS. I WAS NO STRANGER TO PIKE CO. HE HAD WHAT HE SAID. ANYWAY I RANG HIS PHONE OFF THE WALL WANTING TO KNOW WHAT HE WAS SEEING. HE WOULD LAUGH AND SAY THRE WILL BE BIGGINS LEFT FOR THE SECOND GUN SEASON. I FORGOT TO SAY I HAD ONLY HUNTED THE FIRST GUN SEASON. AND USUALLY SAW 10 TO 20 BUCKS A DAY WITH GOOD SUCCESS. THE BIG DAY FINNALY ARRIVES WITH THE WEATHER ABOUT TO GO INTO A DEEP FREEZE AND HIGH WINDS TA BOOT. THE HUNT CAME OFF WITH A LAST MINUTE KILL OF A DECENT BUCK. I HUNTED DAYLIGHT TO DARK. I SAW PLENTY OF DEER THE BIG BOYS DIDN'T MOVE MUCH IN 2FT OF SNOW BUT THEY DID EVENTUALLY. ANDY AND HIS WIFE RUN A SMALL OPERATION,CLEAN,&GOOD FOOD. HE DOESN'T OVER HUNT THE LAND HAS GOOD TREE STANDS ETC. ALSO HE WILL GO OUT OF HIS WAY FOR YOU. AND TRUST ME THIS HUNT WAS VERY COLD AND WINDY THE OTHERS I WAS IN CAMP WITH ALL GREAT GUYS (HOW OFTEN DOES THAT HAPPEN) WERE IMPRESSED AS WELL. THE WEATHER WAS TERRIBLE AND WE HUNTED HARD. YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR PART AS A HUNTER ALSO STAY THE COURSE HUNT ALL DAY!!!! MY BEST DEER MOVEMENT WAS 9AM TILL 2PM IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A GOOD HUNT AND RELIBLE PERSONELL I WILL RECCOMEND ANDY.
