Overall Impression: POOR

I researched the web for a quality outfitter to harvest a nice buck. Must say web site is much more impressive than the number and quality of deer seen. After arriving we were given a piece of paper stating that YOU WANT SEE MANY DEER (yes you are reading this correctly). That first night of arrival we were told we will draw for stand locations and hunt that stand for 2 days and then redraw. This never happened. We drawed first night and then you were taken where they wanted to put you. They just moved you around to different stands that someone else hunted the day before. They also demanded for you to hunt dark to dark. If this is going to be mandatory they should include this on there web site. I hunted the first day dark to dark and seen no deer. I opted not to hunt dark to dark for the rest of hunt. Ended up not seeing any bucks. After the first couple of days we were told if we didnt hunt dark to dark we were DONE. Meaning they would not take us back for the evening hunt. One of the owners stated they were too busy farming than to run us back and forth to our stands. I have never been to a outfitter that you had to drive yourself to a stand location. It's very unfortunate that the hunt ended the way it did.
