This was my first hunt through an outfitter. Vic is probably the most honest and down to earth person that I have ever met. The guide put us right in a funnel that deer were being seen. 3 hours into my hunt and I arrowed a nice 12 pter. Younger deer, but my biggest. Next day I hung a set in a location that looked good on the topo...low and behold a 160 class monarch was chasing a doe in the CRP field. Had I not already killed the 12 pt...uggghhhh!!! Saw deer every day...several with potential and the one monster. I see a lot of negative reviews for this outfitter, but I don't know why. Vic offers a first class hunt. If you are looking to get pampered and have a deer tied up so you can go shoot it...don't book with Vic. But if you are looking for an opportunity to hunt some great properties, deal with honest folks, and do some HUNTING! then you'll have a great time with Vic. I have already booked my hunt for this November with Vic...if we get a nice buck that will be a bonus, but we will have a killer time regardless.
