Schraders Outfitters

I have been looking a leasing a piece of land on the Eastern Shore. I have been talking to Ken Schrader. Any body have any thoughts on this outfitter. Any help would be appreciated.

When I was looking at booking a hunt down there, he was recommended to me from someone that hunts the eastern shore regularly. He had nothing but good things to say about his entire operation.

He runs a really nice Sporting Clays operation. Schrader's Bridgetown Manor.

Re: Schraders Outfitters

Big Ken,
You did not have to wait long. One of the fellow hunters in our party wrote something a while back but I was also on the same hunt. Would not recommend this outfitter unless he has really changed his operation.
Tree stands within 50 yards of an interstate.
Deer hunting among geese hunters with shot raining down on us.
Properties that were obviously over hunted.

There are other outfitters down that way. I would not go back to Schraders.

Gotta say....when I was looking at an archery deer hunt in Md I found what I thought to be better guides and better operations. JMHO

Re: Schraders Outfitters

Share as in the other places I looked at and spoke to and felt better about ? Is that what you're asking ? Sure...
Quaker neck, upper chesapeake, deer haven and hopkins. Spoke to them all, had the right answers to the questions I was asking, seemed honest and hard working. In the end I didnt go because I put in for the Georgia gator tag and I was sure I was gonna get drawn since I had enough preference points and I also booked a Maine bear hunt so wifey said no go to a third guided hunt this year. Anything else just ask, I'll tell

Re: Schraders Outfitters

I did a "so-called" trophy hunt late muzzleloader at Shraders where it was supposed to be trophy managed and you could not take a buck under 125". Well for the first day and a half - 4 guys saw zero deer let alone a good buck. In 3 days we did finally see a couple small bucks and took a couple does but that was after the 2 guides set up drives and went on neighboring property to try to push some deer to us. This was supposedly a very lightly hunted property. We hunted muzzleloader end of Dec. They had a new JD Gator there that they said was new in September and never left that property - well it had over 600 hours use on it so figure it out that is 150hrs average per month or almost 40 hours of run time a week for 4 months so if it wasn't hunted hard - someone was constantly running that gator around the place. He then went away from guided deer hunts and was trying to start some sort of lease club where he was subletting farms for the season and such to groups. I see he still does some of that but is back in the guided deer hunts again so it must not have worked out as he planned. I don't know about his bird hunts or such but I would never go back and deer hunt with him again. Has to be other, better places.
