We shot ducks and geese at Klamath refuge with Mr. Rowe. He did show up promptly and to be fair, it did freeze overnight, which made the hunting challenging. This is NOT a review about the hunting success, since that is always subject to issues that are often beyond the guide's control.
However, Mr. Rowe was not very friendly, seemed more interested in getting us out and back as quickly as possible and getting paid in full. We had two experienced hunters and one novice with us and Mr. Rowe was just not very friendly and actually ridiculed a mistake by the novice hunter (dropped some shells in the boat, making a loud noise that scared some geese away). Overall, just not a positive experience. Other guide services we have used were more congenial, more encouraging, teaching and providing local hunting tips (we were visiting from California).
We hardly shot any birds, but again, that's not all Mr. Rowe's fault. But when we left the hunt, I was hoping that we would get some sort of consideration, something like "Come on back up and get 10% off your next hunt since this one was not that good for you" - something to leave us with a positive taste in our mouth. Didn't happen.
Would not recommend. There's plenty of better services available...without the attitude.
