Overall Impression: Waste of Time/Money

We (4 hunters) were pawned off from Mike Tussey to another outfitter and from him to another. This was only made apparent only after we arrived in Florida. Mr Tussey pawned us off to David Mills, and from Mr Mills we were placed in the care of Lucky Inman of Peace River Adventures. Bear in mind this was a very expensive hunt for a unique turkey. The hunt: Hunted a Property that had no game outside the high Fence, and very little other than some pitiful exotics and a dangerous overpopulation of wild hogs and Asian Water Buffalo inside the fence. 1 of our group was purued by the Buffalo for the better part of a morning, and everywhere you went there were wild hogs. 1 hunter out of four saw a gobbler closer than 200 yds. and managed to kill it. 1 other gobbler was seen by the entire group in 3 hard days of hunting. The Guides 2 of the three guides were hired the night we arrived and had no more experience on the property than we did. The one that had been there before guided his hunter to the only kill on the last day. The guides did the best the could but we were still 1 guide short of what was promised. Outfitters brother-in-law was constantly driving his truck through the property (1300 acres for 4 hunters) while we were hunting. Cabin had only 1 bed, 1 fold out sofa, 1 cot and a couch for four hunters. Generator (yes in Florida!!) ran out of gas twice. Well water stunk of Sulphur so bad it was unfit for bathing, much less drinking. I have no problem with accomodations such as these when I am given advance notice, but we paid for something completely different. Mr. Tussey has failed to return my calls since our hunt. An osceola hunt should be a unique experience. If you want good hunting and truthful representation, then go somewhere else!!!
