    Our group of 10 will meet at one of his camps, for our fifth year, day after tomorrow. Last year our group killed 67 birds, we've averaged 2+ plus birds per day over 5 years, and that's with 4 guys pushing 70, whose priority is not slogging thru cattalils or walking tall CRP. Accomodations are not fancy, but very serviceable. Big great room with big TV, lots of recliners, big kitchen, big gear room, big barn I can pull truck and dogs into. Plenty of ground, farmed for wild birds with excellent habitat. You get there, say hello to your host, and from then on its you and the dogs. About perfect for our group, don't give a rats behind what bird numbers are, we're gonna make what is there... fly.

    Consider this a rave review.

    I'll also be up there hunting public in 2 weeks, looking for a big rock with blood on it, next to a fence post, next to a corn field.

    Chip is Uguides #1 fan. Maybe you should wait a week on your rave review.

    Hey, if you book a trip to a warm getaway where it is 80 and sunny 96% if the time, we realize that there is that 4% of the time when the weather may be bad...not the travel agents fault!!! UGUIDE delivers what he promises...good habitat, namely...there are these years where mother nature has her way! You will have a good time...

    Yes it exists ----of this I AM sure----as 25 hunters from six states found out his season. I say no a lot but not always.

    I find it hard to believe everybody charges to let a guy hunt.I hunt by myself, and I get on some good farms. You dont have to spend thousands of dollars, or hunt public land, to get excellent hunting.However, you do have to do a lot of scouting.

The trouble at that point isn't so much convincing a land owner you're a nice guy & responsible hunter. The trouble is finding out who owns the land & actually making contact with that person. Any more, I don't have time for it. My time is better spent driving straight to one of the many public areas I'm familiar with, letting Buzz out, & finding a couple roosters. If I had the work week free, I could devote time to driving around playing detective & obtaining permission. But such is not the case. Have to work on that.
    Agree 100%... finding the person to talk to just to see if you have the chance to hunt can take hours....

    I spend my time scouting landowners in the bar at night and the cafe in the morning, not during the hours I should be holding a gun.

    That's my deal...I'm sure I could get permission, but I only have a few days to hunt. I can't burn them up knocking on doors trying to figure out which guy owns that piece down at the corner. Thought about a trip out in the summer to try and shore up some permission? Just not sure it's worth it.

    Back in Sept i counted unguided pheasant count for 2016 at 3262 birds
    This year is at 1755 birds taken.He did have 8 camps in 2016 and 6 camps in 2017 so that makes a differance.
    All this proves is you can't screw with mother nature no matter what kind
    of habitat you have
