    Call Curt Wilkerson in Lawton. (580)355-7505

    I never hunted geese with him but he put us on the cranes one day. I know he does kill alot of geese too.

    I hunted with Curt on a Goose hunt, let me just say, you get what you pay for ($85.00)... I dont plan to go back. Some of the things i didnt like would be, Overcrowded hunts, not very classy, 1 caller, shooting Way the hell out there to.. and just other little things that bugged me. Once you go, you wont ask yourself how he charges 85.00.. You sure get what you pay for.

    My 2 Cents on Curts Guide Service.

    guess I had a different experience. Only three in our party and we shot cranes 20 yards over our heads. Know what you're getting into up front.

    Hehe, there were about 12-13 in our party, all laying downhill on the other side of a barb wire fence shooting through it 50+ yards.

    If you don't mind hunting in Kansas talk to Mike Niles in Great Bend. They have some excellant hunting there and Mikes a great guy. I also heard a rumor there is a Crane call in the works somewhere - ask Mike about the details. They will have the call for folks to blow at the Great Bend Outdoor Show on June 13, 14 and 15. Alot of contests that weekend and close enough to drive to. Its just west of Wichita KS about 45 miles. Mike Niles 620-792-3274.

    Since my last post sparked such controversy, drive down to Texas and book with Bay Prairie. The last time I was there I hunted with a young man named Brian Kutasch and an old salt named Billy Hodges who are both great guides.

    I guarantee you will see more geese and cranes there than anywhere else in the country.

    I'm going back on the refuge hunt this December if any of you Okies want to tag along.

    Curts was the biggest waste of money that I have spent...With only 2 hunters in our group , he invited his close and personal friends...We had birds walking on the groung on our side of the spread and he would not call the shot...BUT when they flew on his NON PAYING friends side he called it....Sorry but unless I wanted to shoot his head off I could NOT SHOOT....They got 3 birds , which they gave to us...Then acted like he wanted a TIP!!!!!!!!Screw THAT!@#$%.....Don't WASTE YOUR MONEY....Scout and check the shows....BTW SAM POWELL( WHO SUCKS ) ENDORSES curts ...Probably one of the free shooters...

    Cheezy:eek:

    Total Cost 85 fee, hotel 55, gas & tolls 30 & food 30 ( could have purchased a case of shells)
