He does not always get to blinds at daylight. Under the right conditions he goes out later, which is very effective. It takes a little patience. Those who follow his advice do well. It was incredible the day after you left.

I have come across many myself, but this guys is not one of them…at least for me. And, I have only fired two shots there in 5 trips. I photo other people's hunts. On the flip side, I have seen lots of people who expect too much from a guide. Weather is their worst enemy. They can look horrible one day and look great the next..often depends totally on the weather. Guides are people, too. This guy works harder than any guide I have ever known. He has leases land over a 60 mile stretch and can hunt in three zones. It takes some effort on everyone's part to get to spots. I guess that doesn't agree with some folks. But the effort is worth it; I'm telling you the truth. Obviously every style of hunting does not agree with every individual. But, for hunters to bash one another…I don't get it. Good luck to all of you. Oh…this guy gets calls very often from farmers wanting him to lease their lands, because they have had so much trouble with fly-by-night-opeerators. To each his own.
