Review Information

Hunter: Dave Dykstra



Would Recommend: no

Overall Impression: Very disappointing

For $1700.00 It was a very low budget outfit. We stayed in a ramshackle farmhouse with no water pressure, which made showering tough. Important since this was an archery hunt. Meals consisted of no breakfast. Chili for lunch everyday. Whatever the local diner had on special for a box supper. The guides dropped us off and picked us up ...sometimes. Saw no deer for the first 2 days. I then discovered old cigarette butts under the bark of the tree I was in. The stands we hunted out of had already been hunted hard in the weeks prior to my hunt. The guides are inexperienced and lazy. The farmers whos land I hunted told us he would never lease to these guys again. He caught one of the guides stealing gas from his pump. The first day of the hunt we didn\'t get out until after light because the guides were late and nobody knew where their stands were. There was also a dead doe carcass rotting in a cardboard box behind the owners house. Don\\\'t waste your hard earned dollars on these guys. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have concerning Rodhouse Rut-n-Strut.
