Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: Very disappointing

On arrival no one was there to meet us at the owners residence. We noticed a strong oder and found a dead doe rotting in a cardboard box behind the house. The first day of the hunt our \\\"guides\\\" arrived after sun-up. They then couldn\\\'t find our stands. We didn\\\'t get on stand until after 8:30 am. I didn\\\'t see deer for 2 days. I then discovered cigarette butts tucked under the bark of the tree I was hunting out of. So much for scent control on this bow hunt. We were put up in a drafty old farmhouse with no water pressure in the shower. Meals consisted of no breakfast. Chili for lunch everyday. Whatever was on special at the local diner for a box lunch supper. The guides were all under 25 yrs. old and did little, other than pick us up and drop us off. And needless to say, nobody connected on a deer, not even a doe. This area obviously has some huge bucks. Find another guide in the area to put you on them though. These fellas are amateurs to say the least.
