Conklin's Lodge Patten Me

I recently had my first and last hunt with Conklin's Lodge. I talked with the outfitter for several months before booking, and apon arrival found most claims were lies. From day one the outfitter bashed, belittled and cused out most of the clients in camp, stating many times that if we didn't like the way he ran his operation, we could leave. Outfitter was extrememly rude, repeatedly calling clients dumb for not bringing seat cushions, using scent eliminator, and bringing backpacks. Guides failed to find 2 bears that had gone less than 50 yards on repeated occassions. Hunter was bashed for not being able to shoot and told that he had missed even though he had hit both bears. Of 14 hunters, only 5 saw bear, with most baits were not being hit. Outfitter refused to move hunters to new bait sites until the last day. New bait sites were also inactive. Outfitter blamed the hunters for not sitting still and peeing out of treestands as to the reason we weren't seeing bears. Meals were less than desireable with the same meal given every evening, cold ham and cheese sandwiches. Don't waste your money! Do alittle more research than I did and find a better outfitter.
