I went with Corey and two other guys on this hunt in the fall of 2015 and I witnessed what Corey has described above. Although I was successful on this hunt, I was let down in many of the same ways as Corey. When we returned to the lodge at night and voiced our concerns about deer sightings, stand set locations and stand safety, it fell on deaf ears. I personally witnessed the staff gripe about other clients behind their backs and even about the owner, Paul Korn, stating, "He never pays us for anything and can't buy us the equipment we need." I checked out several of the marked "food plots" on the property maps we had been given and was shocked to see bare dirt plots with failed or faltering plantings. None of these locations were attracting deer. We finally located a farm that the staff seemingly knew nothing about and had not walked yet. There were no stands set up in the remote portions of this property and I used a climber to hunt this area. After locating a great funnel and tons of buck sign, I was able to connect on a nice buck at the last minute. I was fine putting in the work myself to get it done on this hunt, but if that’s not what you’re looking for then this place is not for you. They do kill a lot of bucks on those properties, but they run a ton of hunters through there too. I was left with the impression that they didn't want us to kill bucks so they could sell more hunts for the bucks they had pics of. We hunted close to camp, so maybe things are different on some of the remote properties. I would not hunt from their stand sets. Mike
