2018 Guided Hunts

Performance Outdoors Guided Camp is a boutique hunting experience.  We allow up to 9 hunters per week in the camp.  Included with this guided hunt is lodging, food, and meals. The Performance Outdoors guided hunt is staffed with three guides and one camp manager who also prepares the lodge experience.  We have many stands in the air per client at camp, but this does not mean all sets are hunted.  We only hunt sets when the WIND is right.  Guides do not sit with the hunters, but have their entire experience planned.  The guides assist and help every step of the way toward client success.  Hunters do NOT need to bring any stands for their hunt.
