Pure Adrenaline Outfitters, Four Oaks, NC
Completed a hunt end of May 2016. Was placed in a stand at 5:00PM with feeder 50-yards away and told not to walk around as I would leave human scent. Stayed in the stand from 5:00PM until 6:30AM. Not a single hog came by and no tracks, not even old tracks. After sun up, walked over to the feeder, and it was EMPTY. No corn spread on the ground either. Called the "guide" who dropped me off and was told "they have people who fill the feeders during the day". He said "call the owner and let him know, I only take hunters to the stand". Called the owner, and was told "they should have filled up the feeder during the day, maybe they forgot". I said "things happen how about giving me another day to hunt with a full feeder at no charge". He said "no hunt is guaranteed, if you want to hunt again, it will be another $375.00". He would not budge. I understand Hunting is Hunting and nothing is guaranteed, however when a "guide" places you in front of an empty feeder and leaves never to return (had to walk 45-minutes back to the camp in the morning) this is a poorly managed hunting operation. Spoke with some locals at the country store/gas station and was told "that happens to every hunter. Sorry you were ripped off, we hear similar stories all the time. By the way, most the photos on their Web site are not from their property and the ones that are from their property are several years old". Save yourself $600.00 (hunting fee, out of state license, fuel, travel expenses,...) and find a reputable wild hog hunting place.
