Hunter Comments
I do not recommend this outfitter

Gary is a very nice guy - but it is NOT his show. There is some other guy that owns the land and cabin. As to the beautiful cabin on the website - you will not sleep in the master bedroom with the hot tub depicted. That is where Gary sleeps. Though Gary is pleasant enough, do not be fooled by the website you will not enjoy many of the amenities depicted because Gary does. Yep, you've got it - Gary stays with you and your crew the ENTIRE time. You will all bunk in a room upstairs. As to the "Happy Acres" - they are not so happy. We saw NOTHING in 5 days morning and evening hunts. Actually that's not true - we saw friends of the owner walking along paths within 100 yards of the tree stands out for a stroll. More than once. Gary apoligized profusely for this, and said he would bring it to the owner's attention. We told him that we wanted a portion of the money back as at least half of the hunting days were ruined. We did not get a single dollar back. And as for the review about Gary's wife bringing in steaks for dinner - that will never happen unless you are this Caponi fella apparently. Last, your stay will begin with Gary showing you some very old digital photos of hogs that were once there on the large TV in the living area.
