Hall of Shame

FCS had bad experiences with the below outfitters/guides and will not rehire or recommend them.  These experiences including lack of game/false representations of the amount and type of game that is being seen, lack of scouting/effort, and/or misrepresentation of lodging and/or food.  Included is the event that we did with them and their location.

  • Blue Roan Bend Outfitters (goose and duck hunt – lack of game; near Eagle Lake)
  • Brett Manry (hog hunt – lack of game – sent several pictures of hogs, our six hunters only saw one hog and it was on a neighbor’s property; near Cherokee)
  • Dove Heaven/Double H Outfitters/Justin (dove hunt – not enough game for the number of hunters they had and they put 30 hunters 100 yards from us that shot most of the dove that were heading our way; near San Antonio)
  • Elm Creek Outfitters (an affiliate of theirs) (dove hunt – lack of game; near Hutto)
  • Haun Ranch (deer and hog hunt) – did not tell us until after we arrived that does were by permit only and only two of  our hunters could take one; near Victoria)
  • Heart of Texas Guided Hunt/Texas Thermal Hog Hunts (hog hunt – lack of game, poor quality/worn out thermal sights, and deceptive trade practices on lodging and food; near Hubbard)
  • Pinoak Ranch (duck hunt – lack of game; near Tehuacana)
  • Simmons Waterfowl Service (duck hunt – lack of game and his idea of concealment is laughable (sitting on straw bales in the open); near Fort Worth)
  • Triple Play Outfitters (dove hunt – lack of game; near New Braunfels)

Members – if you have an outfitter from an FCS trip that you’d like Randy Rowley to consider adding to either of these lists, send an email to him at randywrowley@gmail.com.  It would be helpful if you would also submit details of the encounter.
