Outfitter's Response

Joe Williamson... if you're going to post a negative review, let's let everyone see all the facts. First of all, this was your second hunt with us because you enjoyed the first mule deer/antelope combo hunt so much. According to my notarized annual report, your hunt was scheduled from 10/21-10/24 of 2014. You harvested your deer on the evening of 10/22/14. So, you're hunt did not take place in September of 2014 (and it still hasn't been 2 years). When you returned for the mule deer hunt the second year, you had an injured foot and couldn't walk, nor did you want to. You also chose to kill a deer on the second evening of your hunt (you personally named "High Tower"), not the last day. Your guide didn't tell you to shoot the deer, nor did anyone else and your exact words were "High Tower has to go down." You never wanted to sit in one spot for more than 15-20 minutes because you were impatient. You were also more worried about getting to deadwood to gamble than you were the deer hunt. I still have the photos of the nice bucks that you were shown it's funny that even though they were "obviously off the internet," they are trail camera photos with the time/date stamp as well as my last name for the camera name, I'm happy to show those to anyone that would like to see them. You were provided with options for your mule deer taxidermy work, that has nothing to do with the outfitter. We didn't control who you used or what you selected to do with your head. To say a different taxidermist had your head is 100% false. You provided a deposit at the end of the hunt to the taxidermist you chose to use, it appears you may have had too much of a celebration aft there harvesting your deer. that has nothing to do with us. You never once called me directly in regards to any taxidermy, possibly Rich, no way I can know that. I find it slightly amusing that you've never contacted me since the hunt to even discuss any of this. And you posted a review about how great your hunt was the first time out. Thanks to everyone for your time in reading this response to a ridiculous review. -Dustin You don't seem overly disappointed in the below photo with the deer you chose to take.
