Is it Shane Montgomery?

Re: Montgomery Outdoor Adventures in Ohio

I hunted with Shane when he ran Working Man's Guide Service. I had fun but ONLY because I was there with friends and it was our first out of state hunt.

The stand locations were poor at best, the deer sightings were about the same. Only hunted 4 days, the only buck I saw was a small 6 point.

Friend hit a decent 8 (decent by PA standards, small by OH standards) but couldn't find it, long story short Shane and team put about five minutes of effort into helping trying to find it and came back to say "It went on posted property and we can't go there the owners are hunting" Two things, one funny how on day one you told us they live in Florida and aren't in town until shotgun season and two my buddy has now lost a complete day of hunting because you didn't take him with you nor did you follow up with him.

We didn't pay much and some would say we got what we paid for but come on man.

No joke the last day his kid took me to a new set. I got there and it was a beautiful bowl that I could see a nice beat trail at the bottom. Here was my exchange with the kid:

Me: Where are the deer typically moving
Kid: They run that trail along the bottom all the time
Me: Ok where is the other stand?
Kid: What other stand it is this one right here
Me: How am I supposed to shoot down into this bowl from here
Kid: No problem, put the pin three inches high and you'll be fine!

No joke! No deer!

Maybe he has changed (nice guy don't get me wrong), maybe his set up is different, maybe he has different access to land but I couldn't recommend him.

Re: Montgomery Outdoor Adventures in Ohio

We stopped at his booth and talk to him today. My dad is not Internet savvy whatsoever so I'm doing some checking out for him. I didn't get the greatest of vibes from him and personally probably would not go there. The booth that he was at was called Montgomery's outdoor adventures. So is he running his own thing now? Or is it still this working man's guide service? Does anybody know?

Re: Montgomery Outdoor Adventures in Ohio

I hunted with him last month. I thought he was great. Him and his son Kyle worked hard to put us on deer and he did but nothing to shoot. If you are looking for a guide to hold your hand and lead you to the stand every day then go someplace else and pay allot more. He knows his deer,they did exactly what he said they would do and he told us the truth.I would go back in a minute

Re: Montgomery Outdoor Adventures in Ohio

The draw to it is the price. We can figure out our own meals and what not. I was a little confused between the Working Mans guide service stuff and Montgomerys Outdoor Adventures. I'm glad to hear you had a good time. Anything else you can think to add please do. We were talking to a lot of Ohio outfitters today and it feels like unless you have some references to talk to, you're always taking a gamble.

Re: Montgomery Outdoor Adventures in Ohio

Privateowned I have hunted Montana,Maine,Canada,Maryland,New Mexico and Ohio.Good mostly and a couple of bad. Montgomery is allot different. He takes you out and shows you the stands and gives you his honest opinion as of what to do. They don't hold your hand.For example we hit poor hunting weather with wind and rain he told us we are wasting our time on any early morning hunting and told us when he thought the deer would move. He was right on.There was 2 of us and we stayed in a 65 foot mobile home which we thought was great. It was neat and clean and as good as any place I ever stayed. It is some of the finest deer woods I have ever hunted and the deer are big.He has a 16 inch limit on the bucks. We saw plenty of deer but nothing at 16.If you decide to go PM me and I will give you my phone number and fill you in.
