Overall Impression: A complete waste of time and money

DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!! This experience was a complete waste of time and money. I was lied to from the beginning. First, my partner and I were told we would be housed in a private area and were not. We were in a run down old cabin with three other hunters whom we did not know and we shared the same bathroom and kitchen. Through shear luck we got along. Second, we where guaranteed to have an active bait sight, mine and my buddy's bait was never hit in the five days we were there. My sight was so close to a state highway that I could turn around and see cars passing. On one night I saw and heard a lady walking her dog! I told the supposed guide and his response was the bear are used to hearing and seeing people which any hunter knows is a bunch of crap. While we are discussing the guide. His skill was walk you to a sight that is supposed to be active and that was the end of is guiding skills. I was also told they where a low volume guide service but during the last week there was nearly 30 hunters there and no bears taken. This whole experience was a nightmare. I paid hard earned money and a weeks worth of vacation for this!!! There are several complaints lodged against this outfitter. If you want to help prevent you fellow sportsman and women from being victims of this guy please write a letter of complaint to: Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife 284 State Street 41 State House Station Augusta, ME 04333-0041 ATTN: Mary Ann
