Went on a hunt with an outfitter by the name of LodgePole Creek. We had loads of snow and very difficult hunting conditions. We seen some shooter deer (mulley and Whitetail), but many were on property that was not huntable (posted ground).
The reason I am writing this is to prevent anyone from getting ripped off like we did.
The outfitter told us that there were 15 different food plots planted, with stands and shooting houses around them. This is not true. One shooting house not facing any food plot.
The outfitter was supposed to feed us. This did not happen. Breakfast 2 days (one day we were 3 mintues late and he told us we couldn't eat) Lunch (maybe) stale sliced bread and old lunch meat. There was bologna and ham that was very slimmy and looked bad to me. Dinner 4 nights, one serving each, one night he sent over 2 half medium cheese pizzas. Never offered us anything to drink, soda or otherwise. At the one dinner at his house he gave us one gallon of tap water without ice.
We arrived on Monday night (hunt started Tuesday) he told us his committment to us started on Tuesday and we were on our own for food Monday night. We were supposed to start hunting at 5 am on Tuesday, but he was called away to drive a bus and we didn't start driving the 25 miles to the ranch until 6:20 am.
We payed good money for this hunt 2450.00 each and there were 5 of us. Mother nature dropped alot of snow on SD, but his hospitality toward us was what made the hunt horrible. I wanted everyone to know that hunting with LodgePole Creek Outfitters isn't a smart idea. He will take your money and give you nothing in return.
