Overall Impression: EXTREAMLY dissippointed

This was my third hunt with Alberta Whitetail Connection. My first two hunts I had harvested a fairly nice buck but weather conditions were different. This time when me and my friend Glen arrived it was snowing and continued to snow all week. Don Tyschuck the owner and guide was poorly prepared for this weather and had no means to get us to our stands through the snow so we had to hike almost a mile in knee deep snow carring all of our equipment to reach our stand. Don uses the same stands every year and did not have a back up plan in case the game was not moving. We sat the stand for 66 hours ...6 days for 11 hours a day and between Glen and myself we saw a total of 5 deer during the week. The owner never offered any suggestions other then to be patient however when we would hike into our stands we were seeing little if any fresh tracks in the snow. I asked him a number of times to move to s different stand but he would just say be patient. I finally on Friday took a pop up bilnd blind in with me and hunted from it. We would liked to have thought Don would have offered to push the bush or something other then to set in his truck all day drinking coffee, smkoing and listening to sports radio. I will never hunt with this outfiiter again, not because we did not harvest a buck but because of his lack of effort.
