    I want to warn you all about Outdoor Properties Unlimited owned by Shiloh Roten.

    The guy is a scam & a thief running a fly-by-night operation to get your money then leave you high and dry.

    He was advertising two clubs last season in the Los Banos / Grasslands area. Upon leasing the blinds, he made promises, promises we would soon regret believing. He did an absolute half ***'d job preparing the property and gave our club about 30% of the flooding that was expected.

    He did not do field prep, tules were overgrown, didn't cut out ponds. He ran guided hunts out of our blinds. He couldn't even be bothered to go out to his own club when he heard about two trailers on his property that were broken into. Thousands of dollars in gear was stolen but he didn't really flinch or show concern.

    To make matters worse, he would give his whole "hunting crew" permission to hunt the property any time they wanted.

    Each member was disgusted by the way this man does business and he didn't seem to care.

    Later on, I got in contact with a member of the other club he was operating. I was told SAME EXACT story. No water & his goons would hunt the property.

    The guy lacks integrity, he is dishonest & he isn't qualified to be operating duck clubs.

    Here is his website & his facebook.

    You've been warned.

    Sounds like Seaters was pulling a clam job on us:eek:

    Harvey Duck Club ( North Grassland)- Great location across from Los Banos Wildlife Refuge, this appears to be a big bird mecca for limits in the 2012-2013 season. Trailer parking for members, 2-4 man blinds are available. This club sits just south/west of Wolfsen Road on Highway 165 with easy access to Los Banos and Turlock! Get in on this property before all blinds are gone!

    Might have to see about becoming a Crew member:dv
