    I talked to David Price on the phone last week, and after nearly a year, he finally admitted to lying to me and my small hunting group, which had faithfully leased spots from him as loyal and trustworthy lessees for the last 5 or 6 years.

    The confession came as part of a 2nd phone conversation, ~15 minutes after we had hung up from the first conversation where I had asked him how he and his Club members and guide service had done last season while hunting the very spot that he had told us we could no longer lease because he had lost it to a landowner who no longer wanted the spot hunted. During this first phone call, I shared with him the fact that we knew his Club members and Guide service had hunted the property, and shared with him the names of the mutual acquaintances (which he knew we both had :scratch) that had provided us with the proof. Frankly, I was dumbfounded after we hung up from the first call, as he knew that I knew that he was STILL creating lies to cover up his initial lie. The fact that he had called me back to confess that he was lying helped to restore some of my ever-ebbing faith in humanity. ;)

    What actually stings the most is a face-to-face conversation I had with him in late August of last year. After I had asked if he had gotten in touch with the landowner (per my request) to give us permission to dismantle the blind we had just built the season before, he looked me in the eye and told me that he felt bad about losing the spot, and that he had lost the landowner’s number, but would try to contact them via email. (He text me a few days later to say that the landowner had gotten back to him via email stating that they had leased the property to a friend, and that we couldn’t remove anything.) So, while he was literally lying to my face, we were standing with a landowner in Cambridge (2 hours from home) agreeing to lease yet another spot from David Price that required yet another blind re-build. :doh

    Therefore, the moral of this autobiographical tale is two-fold: Buyers beware, as David Price is a liar…and Sellers beware, as Tad Easter may be an idiot, but he loves building blinds. :nutz

    Tad, you must have missed the 3-4 pages of issues with that cat just with people from this board. He has been scamming guys for years and years and years. Ask the dudzinski boy he was "guiding" for price on club stuff for years.

    I think these guys get the only pleasure out of life, by lying to everyone and thinking that is smart business practice. I think it becomes an addiction.

    For real. . The search feature is your friend.

    This *** only tells lies when his mouth moves. His only concern is getting paid and getting you to pay for his way. Frequently those that work for him are the same way OR he's lied to them too. Punk comes to mind.

    There is an endless pool of suckers willing to lease junk at the landowner's price + 100%.

    Don't feel like a fool, you ain't a real Chesapeake waterfowler until you've paid an arm and a leg for an awesome looking spot that produced two mergansers and a hen bufflehead.

    I am comforted by return of angst, disdain and hatred on the 'fuge.
    Carry on.

    Tad anytime you lease from a guide on the Eastern Shore you have to remember he is also your competition.
    I'm trying this guy next year. He sells cars and doesn't hunt.

    Hunting clubs and sub leases always tend to have these issues. I rather just knock on doors and ask for permission or lease straight from the farmer. No middle man and no bs. Even public land can even be decent hunting.
