Hunter Comments
I recommend this outfitter

We lost lost most of the hunt to bad weather. Never seen rain like that in my life! Even still, with very limited hunting I saw lots of big billies and had a missed opportunity, and another close call. On the last day the weather got better but my feet were so blistered up from being wet the previous 4 days that I couldn't climb uphill. This is a hunt that demands physical preparation, but if you are in shape, I can't imagine a better place to kill a goat with a bow. With a gun, based on what I saw, slam dunk. Dennis is an incredibly hard working and conscientious outfitter. He leaves no stone unturned. There are a lot to the logistics of this hunt and Dennis takes care of everything to make sure you are safe and have the best chance at success. His guides are all good, understand archery, are fun to be around, and work hard. Dennis even went out of his way to take us fishing at the end of the hunt. I thoroughly enjoyed the hunt and had an awesome experience, despite an unpunched tag. I'll be back.

Outfitter's Response
Agree

Nate is very correct in the fact that weather played the major role in the hunt. We always deal with rain at some level, but they got drenched. I admired all of their attitudes and for sticking it out as long as they did. We are going to try again in 2016 and will definitely make it work! Dennis
