Hunter Comments
I do not recommend this outfitter

all of the advertising about 50in. bulls seemed to change when we arrived. also the area where you have this highly coveted tag is public with 200 locals and other bigger outfitters all around. you are made to feel you will be lucky to get a shot. tom told my hunting partner to shot one that was less than 600lb. and no more than 2years old only had a 34in. rack . had not even grown into its black coat yet. after it was down Tom said it was 45in and 5years old like we cant measure or see the size. I expressed concerns about wanting a larger 50in rack. I was told he would judge and tell me if and when a bull would be a shooter .(not to many moose in IN.for me to know how to judge) day three of the hunt 220yards out bull comes Tom said kill it I did 37in moose .seems a good outfitter would try to preserve his quality of game , but this outfitter just wants your money and you out. The owner Tom Sallows told us he was the hunter said he has to find the moose show the client the moose tell them when to shot and in his opinion We were just shooters. Also said if he did not like someone's attitude he would just walk them hard for a few days until they just followed in line. We heard a bull one day Tom said that was a sighting because the bush is so thick that's the same as seeing one, I guess that's how he says that they are 100percent on 50in bulls in the last 7years and then says that's an average, but seems to forget about the client that go empty, or he tells to shoot small ones. the mobile bunk houses he shows on his web site are for him and his guides the shooters get the tent that the picture shows smoke going out of the stack, but most of the smoke comes into the tent. the food was a joke ,no snacks hardly anything to eat and what was to eat not hardly eatable . Its almost as they wanted us to be very uncomfortable so we would just take what ever came along and get the hell out. the first guide I had ,the first day had never hunted big game in his life and had never called in a moose and when I asked if he was going to learn to guide he said He had no interest in guiding. There was 10 hunters that had hunted 4 during bow season and 6 during rifle, 4bulls were taken I was one of the 4 to harvest a bull I should be happy right? save your money and time Tom Sallows and mountain man adventures is a sham.
