Overall Impression: poor

I had hunted with this outfitter before. The outfitter advertises 1 guide to every 2 or 3 hunters. In two years there I have only witnessed 1 guide per every 6 hunters. The so called guides are not experienced elk hunters the just keep you from getting lost, hence called guides. The first dissappointment was on day one when I found out that the Wallaces had been chasing elk with muzzleloaders for a week immediately prior to our bowhunt. After 4 days we hadn't filled any tags. The guide apparently took it personally and started treating everyone like crap. I didn't pay to be treated that way and if your expecting hospitality keep looking. If the hunting is bad you will not find it here. On the 5th day one hunter made the guide mad by yelling out to him after being left behind on the mountain one evening. The guide punished him by yelling at him and making him walk back to camp in the dark. On the 6th day I had enough and asked to leave. It was two days early that's how disgusted I was. When I arrived at the main lodge, the owner addressed my dissatisfaction with the hunt by putting his fist in my face and threatening me, shaking his finger in my face and then shoving it into my mouth, and then finally by threatening to sue me for slander if I wrote any letters telling what happened. Just thought you should know about Wallace Guides and Outfitters of Colbran Co. Make your own decision, maybe your more tollerant than I am. Good luck
