Overall Impression: I would not hunt with this outfitter again

To say this hunt was a big disappointment would be an understatement. My hunt was not guided in the outfitter`s premier territory on a large plateau. I was located in outlying areas and moved three times to new spike camps because there was no game sign. And, despite the outfitter having guided here since 1988, two of the guides, including the outfitter`s brother were unfamiliar with the areas we were hunting. On the plateau, repeat hunters with this outfitter were seeing and harvesting game. I was aware that the outfitter`s long-time friend was coming with his three sons for a hunt after my 10 days were up. I had the impression that we did not hunt the plateau so it would remain relatively undisturbed for the benefit of this party of repeat hunters. Thus, I experienced an expensive camping trip and trail ride instead of an honest hunt.
