Overall Impression: poor

We hunted on a hog farm 35 miles from the "lodge". The stench was unreal. Dead hog carcasses littered the parking area. The farm was way over hunted. Our "guide" could not find my stand one morning so I got put in a poorly located 10 foot ladder stand after daylight. The next day my wife was out in a ladder stand that had no seat in it. I was placed about 50 yards from a public bicycle trail. I saw 17 bike riders that evening. We saw very few deer. The guides always saw deer but, we never got to hunt there. One guide said he shot a big 9 point behind the lodge the week before we got there. He also said if we had a climber he could show us where to set up to get a shot at a 5 point buck. My wife told him she did not come to Ill to shoot a 5 point buck!! The whole hunt turned out to be a joke but, our guide did not care if we were happy or not. Stay away from this out fit!!!
