    I'm out of Humbolt Co now and living on the central coast this season, other than Morro Bay there doesn't seem to be much waterfowl hunting close by.

    I signed up for a "Free Hunting and Fishing map" instead of a map, a gentlrman called and wants to meet and talk about joining a "Club" with 25 ranches to waterfowl hunt.

    It sounds very strange to me, does anyone have any experience with these guys?

    Never heard of them.... kind of looks like they are using the "free map" as a leader to get contacts to sell spots in a "wilderness unlimited or golden ram kind of thing...

    I would make sure you get the free map first...:l:l
    Goggle earth is pretty free...

    Sorry to hear about the lead generation and hard sell.

    There’s a but for every seat and that goes for “hunting clubs” as well.

    Yeah, its wilderness unlimited, they ask for your email to get maps of public areas (without ever id'ing themselves as WU) then harass you for the next 2 years....

    Yes, it is Wilderness Unlimited and they actually do provide maps to members for the properties they control. IMO, WU is not a bad organization. They have many good properties and I enjoyed my time there. The biggest problem with WU is their sales manager, Manny who is the biggest a whole you will ever meet. Lots of people despise WU solely because of Manny.

    Whatever you do, don't have them over to your house to "talk about" "free" properties. From what buddies have told me its a very hard sell (think timeshare guy on HGH and fully caffeinated). Meet them at the local watering hole and make them open a tab...... have a few beers, then just leave when the hard sell part begins.

    But seriously..... don't have them over to your house.
