I hunted with Tyler last year on Reelfoot. Leading up to the hunt he told me that we would be hunting a pit blind bordering a refuge. Sounded great to me. Said he would reserve a room for me at the Eagles Nest Resort. Sounded even better. I get to town late on Friday night and find out the resort is closed. I call him, he's dumbfounded. Call the lady that runs the place to come open up and get my room key. She's never heard of this yahoo. That's strike 1. Meet him the next morning. He's 30 mins late. Said we're going on the lake. I asked him about the pit. Somebody else is hunting it. That's strike 2. We get in a blind after waiting around for 45 mins at the boat ramp. Very little shooting. He has an 18 year old and a 16 year old "helping". They decide to switch blinds. We get in another blind and kill 4 ducks between 6 people. I'm fine with that. That's why it's called hunting not killing right? Strike 3 for me was when he refused to go get the birds on the water. Like it wasn't his job. Very unprofessional "guide". Will not be back with him. We left the blind at 12 because he had something else to do. Then he has the audacity to call me while I'm headed home and ask me about joining his lease next year for $1500. I don't think so. I'd stay away from him if I were you and warn all others to do the same

Yea, seems to be the theme everywhere. Really gives a bad name to all guides.

I got stood up at Reelfoot in Jan 2013, if you look on TNducks, you can read about it, but I disagree about giving all guides a bad name.

The guide that we ended up hunting with was very helpful and very accomadating as was everyone we met in Tiptonville and around Reelfoot.

We are returning again in Jan for 5 days hunting.

The guide I had sent deposits to still owes me $1350, and will not take my calls, after saying in Feb he was sending me my money back.

If Possumfoot on here is the same as TNducks he knows who I am referring to.

I wasn't saying that all guides suck. Just people like that give them a bad rep. I also do some small guiding with a guy in Arkansas.

I didn't think you were saying all are bad, I just don't want people to think all are bad. All we met at the landing last season were very upset about what had taken place and very helpful. It doesn't take but one bad apple to taint the basket in some people's mind and that is not the case at Reelfoot, I think the majority are great guys.
the guy we booked with had good recs from the people I called, but now I know who to call when I want to go, which I hope will be often.
