Overall Impression: Very Poor

I waited three years to get an Iowa tag and I talked to Jake Roach about hunting in Iowa he told me that we would see alot of big bucks but he forgot to tell me he lost his best farm. Later the guide told me that they killed 60% of the buck on the farm they lost. He told me that in 2007 11 out of 16 hunters killed some awesome bucks. I saw 1 buck that might go 125 and that was the only buck I saw. In 2009 I know for a fact that they killed 3 out of 16 so we were very disapointed. The camp was a joke, rats and mice everywhere, food not ever put away. The guides were the cooks, one guide was 25 years old and the othe was 21 so the food was terrible!!! Jake nevered show up at camp he just collect your money in full before we arrived at camp. We had 4 farms to hunt and only two of the 4 were huntable. They only had 5 stands set up for north wind so they were hunted often. However he did invite 3 friends from college to hunt in our camp on differnt farm which we were not allowed to hunt and they killed 2 deer and missed 3 it seems like the people thats paid the $3500.00 would get the good farm. I have hunted with alot of guides and outfitters and Performance Outdoors does not take care of their clients at all.
