Brad Herrmann is the biggest lier and con man I have ever had the misforture of dealing with. He put me and another man from Minnisota on ground that he didn't have any connection with. After he was paid, he was gone. We paid top dollor for a guided hunt. There were no stand on this property and it was pounded by the locals who never ever heard of Brad. This guy would not ever return of phone calls. Mr Herrmann is nothing but a coward and a sleazy lier. Do Not Hunt with this GUY or I garantee you will be sorry. HerrMann's Monster Con Man is more like it. Pat Layden Wilkes-Barre Pa.

Game Quality: NA

Camp Condition: FAIR

Food Quality: NA

Guide Experience: FAIR

Other Personal Experience: NA

Overall Impression: BAD!!!

Recommend: NEVER

Reviewer Comments: I paid $2000 for a guided hunt and was placed on a 15 acre wooded tract. On two sides of the small tract were houses and a road on the third side. I was instructed to watch the roadside and shoot the deer feeding on the grass. I was to shoot across the road. I could not believe what I was being told. I asked for another tract and was told there was no other tracts. Their website advertised 13,000 acres.

Accommodation Quality: He had nothing to do with this

Camp Condition: N/A

Overall Impression: Never again

Recommend: Never

Reviewer Comments: This guy and his business should be run out of Iowa and Missouri. Brad is a liar and a cheat. Please for your own sanity and good do NOT even think about booking a hunt with this liar. He'll take your money and put you on land that's not his and run leaving you to explain to the REAL landowners why you were on their land. PLEASE do not get involved with BRAD HERRMANN.

Reviewer Comments: We booked a hunt in Iowa with Brad Herrman and Herrman's Monster Guides. When we arrived at Dudes Iowa we called Brad so he could come and meet us. He told us the location of the trailer we were to stay in and told us where the key was and that he would be there to meet us the next day. The next day he called and said to meet him in a town 25 miles away and he would show us where to hunt. We met Brad and his brother and they took us to two farms and told us we had over 300acs on each one and we could hunt anywhere we wanted. He had two ground blinds on each farm that looked like he just sat them up in the middle of a field. He told us that we would see nice quality bucks and that we were to pass on any 150 class bucks because we were sure to see bigger ones. He also told us if we weren't seeing good bucks to call him and he would place us on another farm or put drives on for us. So we paid him in cash which he requested and he and his brother went on there way. Needless to say we never saw any big bucks. We told Brad that the trailer we were staying in had no propane for cooking and it also had a water leak that needed fixed. He assured us he would be over the next day and fix the leak and bring propane. That never happened. We tried calling him to place us on another farm and to get us propane but he shut his cell phone off and we could not get a hold of him all week. He just took the money and ran. It was so bad we ended up hunting public land. Guides like this should not be allowed to guide. It was the worst hunt I've ever been on and I would not recommend this guide service to my worst enemy. Please if there is anything you can do, this operation needs to be shut down. Thanks, Charlie

Camp Condition: Not fitting for 6 people

Food Quality: Bought our own

Guide Experience: What guides?

Other Personal Experience: No experience

Overall Impression: Terrible

Recommend: Not a chance

Reviewer Comments: We were promised everything in the world and recieved nothing even close to it. We had 6 guys sitting on 1 soybean field. Our lodging was over an hour away. We were shown our torn apart blinds as it was getting dark the night before the season started. We got caught for tresspassing on land where our blinds were set up for us.

Reviewer Comments: I have more than 50 names, telephone numbers and e mail addresses of good hard working hunters that got ripped off by Brad Herrmann that would be more than happy to tell of their horror stories about their hunt with Herrmann's Monster Guides. Please do yourself a favor and contact me before booking a hunt with Herrmann's Monster Guides. Our hunt was a $2000 nightmare. Contact me for the REAL TRUTH about Brad Herrmann!!!!!!!!!

Species Hunted: whitetail deer

Game Quality: poor

Accommodation Quality: poor

Camp Condition: poor

Food Quality: poor

Guide Experience: poor - saw him once

Other Personal Experience: poor

Overall Impression: terrible/very disappointing

Recommend: absolutely not

Reviewer Comments: This man should be in jail, he is a convicted felon. We were promised the world and got hosed. My brother's stand was on land that Brad had no rights to. We were told 200 acres of land each our 6 guys had 30 acres of huntable land total. If you don't mind hunting in a cow pasture with cows 20 yards from you he's your man. This guy took our $12,000 and ran!
