Overall Impression: Bad

This was the first week of rifle season, we saw 1 legal mule deer at 460 yards and 1 illegal spike elk at 3/4 of a mile. My guide was lost twice that I was aware of and admitted on one day that he hadn't been to this particular site for seven years, not what you want to hear on a one on one hunt. Two 2 year old elk were taken out of 9 hunters. The guides recommended taking shots at any visible part of the animals at ranges from 400 to 600 yards. Both elk shot were wounded at 400 plus yards and then killed when the hunters were able to get another shot, in one instance this took the form of climbing a tree and shooting at the animal for an hour till it was knocked down. The other animal was gut shot while two hunters blazed away at 450 yards, one hunter ran out of shells and the other finally finished the animal at 200 yards. The outfitter and guides also managed to break the antlers on one of the elk by rolling it down a hill after the hunter asked them to be careful because this was his first elk. All in all not a hunt you'd want to pay money to go on.
