Overall Impression: Below average

Booked a hunt w/ Bob at local Sportsman's show. Very inexpensive hunt, so didn't expect much... more of a meat hunt / getaway.He claimed to have 6000 acres leased w/ over 70 treestands. We got there and met his 1 "guide" for the 6 of us and 5 others in camp. Very nice guy, but not to up on bowhunting. They told us to bring climbers if we wanted to adjust. Well, long story short, he said here are your general areas, go find a spot that looks good w/ your climbers. Period. End of story. We made the best of what we had to work with. Saw some deer, mostly does, out of bow range. A couple of small bucks w/in rifle range. Most spots would be great for gun hunting, but not bow. Bob, the owner, never got off the couch to even speak with us (literally). He just layed there and didn't do a thing.We had 6 guys in camp. One shot a spike, another wounded a spike and another missed a doe. I saw deer every time out, just out of bow range.Nice woods and nice place they put us up in, but definately not what it was supposed to be.It it weren't for the laziness of the owner and the false impression we were given, i'd be back. I have no problem w/ self guided, but not when it is supposed to be guided.Overall poor experience w/ the outfitter himself.Nice area and lots of small deer. Not a trophy hunt.
