Hunter Comments
I do not recommend this outfitter

Was never informed that he only guides on public lands. Was told to buy Big game combo, but wasn't taken to a place mule deer even were till last day. Was told by guide that areas we were in doesn't have Mule Deer. Was told if Elk weren't talking they had other options. Never seen the other options. Was made to think there would be plenty of opportunities to take game. Had 3 encounters 1 of which I found animals on my own. Also one which guide scared Elk off.After going over things in 2 different orientations. Everything we hunted was recycled hunting areas by guide, or public hunters at every trail head guide went to. Was informed by guide we couldn't view trail cam pics from trail cams to see if any game was ever coming into areas. Guide wasn't ever in the mood to guide. Slept at every trail head for at least a half hour every morning. Guide went 2 days without wind checker. Guide got mad when we checked wind. Guide also tried to leave early on last day. Had to make him stay . Runs 2 camps very close to each other and out of 18 guys in the 2 camps. There were only 2 bulls takin all week. Wish I got paid for 9% finished job and collects all money with no refunds. Guide we had hadn't guided a single elk kill all year. Guide said he only heard one bugle the year before. Was given exspired lunch meat to make sandwiches. Lodge was nice. 8700$ in a hunt for tags- service-travel and everyone there acted like I should be super happy with my Hunt.
