Re: Workin' man's guide Service of Ohio
I don't think they are in business anymore but my experience was so-so at best.
Let me say, I didn't expect one of those places like Lee & Tiffany stay at so my expectations for lodging weren't high. That said when we arrived we stayed in an old trailor that was a bit beat up. For breakfast he bought Hostess doughnuts and cereal to keep in the kitchen.
He would pick us up in his S10 Blazer (4 guys with bows is tight!) and drop us off at pre-setup treestands. Mostly over a pile of corn. What I noticed about the stands I was in, is they were not very strategically placed. As I sat in the stands I saw far better places for the stands. My guess is they were good the first year he started doing it and so he put them in the same tree every year. Over all it was an ok experience, didn't see a lot of deer. Friend of mine shot an 8 point that the owner claimed he couldn't recover because it was on another persons property. This was after only 35 minutes of following a good blood trail(on the first day he told us the owners of that property lived in Florida and it was ok for him to go there, so that wasn't the issue). Not very ethical to leave a deer.
The last day his 10 year old son took me on a quad to a spot that at first he couldn't find. When I got there I said those look like far shots and he said "the deer will come out on the bottom, put your pin 5 inches high and then shoot"
Needless to say it wasn't a great experience but for my very first out of state/outfitter hunt I was satisfied. Went with 2 great friends so it was worth it.
