Andrew Rudolf Wulf of Tipton, Iowa is behind bars tonight. He is accused of running a fake outfitter service called Whitetail Ridge Outfitters that guided deer hunts in Iowa and Missouri.
He would charge hunters a down payment of $2500. Once the hunters arrived, they did not receive what was promised. A lot of victims were abandoned and never met by Wulf and the ones that did were given the run around.
The Des Moines Register posted the following incident. Kevin Williams, a 39-year- old plant worker near Baton Rouge, La.., said he and a friend each paid $2,500 for a hunting package that turned out to be a wild goose chase.
Williams said the two drove 13 hours from Louisiana for a post-Christmas hunt on the Iowa-Missouri border. He said Wulf told him the hunting stand they were headed to was only about 10 minutes away, but Wulf and a man Wulf called his cousin drove them more than an hour away in Missouri.
When they finally got to the hunting site, he said, the wooded area was about 30 feet from someone’s backyard.
“We were hunting while kids were playing in the backyard,” he said. “I told him, “Hey, this is the worst hunt I’ve been on.”
The next day, Williams said, Wulf didn’t show up after he had promised to take them to a new area. Instead, the man Wulf called a cousin took him to the same place and pretended to direct them to a different stand.
“I walked through the woods for over two hours and never found the stand,” he said. “That’s when we started texting him and saying “This isn’t what we paid for.”
Upon hearing about the arrest William is quoted as saying;
“I am ecstatic… It’s just great that he got busted and he won’t be able to do this to anybody else.”
