We booked a hunt in Iowa with Brad Herrman and Herrman's Monster Guides. When we arrived at Dudes Iowa we called Brad so he could come and meet us. He told us the location of the trailer we were to stay in and told us where the key was and that he would be there to meet us the next day. The next day he called and said to meet him in a town 25 miles away and he would show us where to hunt. We met Brad and his brother and they took us to two farms and told us we had over 300acs on each one and we could hunt anywhere we wanted. He had two ground blinds on each farm that looked like he just sat them up in the middle of a field. He told us that we would see nice quality bucks and that we were to pass on any 150 class bucks because we were sure to see bigger ones. He also told us if we weren't seeing good bucks to call him and he would place us on another farm or put drives on for us. So we paid him in cash which he requested and he and his brother went on there way. Needless to say we never saw any big bucks. We told Brad that the trailer we were staying in had no propane for cooking and it also had a water leak that needed fixed. He assured us he would be over the next day and fix the leak and bring propane. That never happened. We tried calling him to place us on another farm and to get us propane but he shut his cell phone off and we could not get a hold of him all week. He just took the money and ran. It was so bad we ended up hunting public land. Guides like this should not be allowed to guide. It was the worst hunt I've ever been on and I would not recommend this guide service to my worst enemy. Please if there is anything you can do, this operation needs to be shut down. Thanks, Charlie
