Since 2003 I have hunted with Woosley twice and killed nice deer on both hunts, however these kills are likely the exception to the average experience with his operation. The properties he hunts are prime whitetail real estate but, his lack of effort in scouting, stand preparation and overall ability for guiding whitetail deer hunts in that region is readily apparent. His strategy is to deploy large groups of hunters to permanent wood stands and move them to a new property each day of the hunt with the hope that one will score. He charges extra for baited hunts that consist of him dumping a freezer bag of corn at the stand you are hunting a few days before. A keen hunter found his stash of bait bags hidden behind the back seat of one of his vans during a trip from the woods and alerted the others. There is no doubt in my mind that his outfit comes up with the trophy bucks he advertises on his brochure each year, but the way that he chooses to guide hunters is not consistent with what one would expect with a "guided" hunt. It is more like paying to "pot" hunt good property for a week knowing that little scouting, preparation or other field work has been done.

Outfitter Response: We hunted with them they suck it was the worst place we ever hunted they drop you off give you a number on your stand and say later I wood not hunt with them
