Doesn't pass the smell test to me! If the hotel is 900 yards from the blind then the place would have to be in the city limits it seems and why would you need to know where to park. $50 PayPal deposit bolt

Loc: Abilene or on the road...
900 yards is over a half mile, there are a few motels on IH 10 that are on the edge of town. Not sure on the exact location of the place in the ad, but I can find 2 or 3 motels that would be within that hunting distance at Abilene.

I have wasted $50.00 before. Might be worth the chance? Isn't there a guarantee on PP purchases?

Yes there is. He may want it sent as a gift which is not insured, if that's the case pay the extra 3% yourself and get it insured. $250 for an axis doe isn't so cheap that I would think it was a scam. The chance at a buck is probably just to get more business, he might not see them that often so worth throwing in there.

The phone number links to a guy named Carlos Moore on Facebook. No information on his page, but he has enough friends in the area that he seems like a real person. If he owns or has legal access to the land, it seems like it might be legit. It would be worth the time to give the guy a call and get some specific answers before booking the hunt

He might be setting you up to be robbed.

900 yds from the motel doesn't sound strange. We quail hunt a place that we can unload the mule at the Motel and drive less than 200 yds (across the road) and you are quail hunting. Or don't cross the road and drive about 300 -400 yds down the side of the road and you are in another pasture, that pasture is where I saw the biggest buck I have seen on the place. He was probably about 900 yds from the motel. I would call & talk to him.

Hey, those are pics I posted on here!

No, not really.

But, as was already said, that guy can't string a coherent ad together to save his life. RUN!!!

That was my impression as well, by the time I got to the end of it, I was expecting " I got alien body parts" or "I got cheap post" peep

Could be as the others said though, is it a regional reasonable price and conditions? IDK, but cost nothing to call.

I don't have any bee colonies, but I'm willing to risk $50 and three yellow jacket nests for a hunt.
