Would Recommend: No not for gun hunting

Overall Impression: Pretty dissapointed for the money spent

Must say, I did not harvest an animal, but this is not the reason for the poor review. All 6 hunters in camp agreed before weeks end that we all felt like we did not recieve our moneys worth of "an outfitter hunting experience." I, and the others I spoke to, felt like we were more of a burden than of clients. We were up in the morning, taken to a stand,(driven right to it with a truck or ATV/ kind of strange hunting for smart older bucks) and picked up for lunch if wanted, or evening for dinner, then TV before bed. An actual attempt to make something happen for the hunters didnt happen till the last day of the hunt, and by that time most were so disappointed that we were not interested. The pre hunt, advertised gun stands with rest, but we got bow stands with no rest. It also stated food plots, but I only hunted one day over a corn feed area, and then another day by a feeder which had not been ran for at least six months by the looks of the rust on it. I have always been taught that food plots were like green fall vegitation such as biologic or Tecamate, but nothing here. Well like I said, if you have lots of money and a world class experience does NOT matter to you, than this is a place for you, "big bucks if you can see them", but if you are someone like me who wants value in what you spend, then this place is not for you. No world class experience here, sorry to say. Oh, only 2 bucks taken in the one week gun season by 8 hunters. (You know I go on deep sea fishing trips all the time, and even if you dont catch anything, they at least try as hard as possible to get you on fish. This wasnt so here with deer)
