I have hunted with Savage Encounters twice in the last year, and I am planning on more hunts in the future. I can't find anything negative to say about their operation so I will discuss the good things. My good friend, Travis Peterson, and I went Black Bear hunting with Savage in May of 2002. Even though we had terrible weather, both of us took nice sized bear. It was a great hunt and the accommodations were great. They really make you feel at home with a very nice hunting lodge, good food and great company. In January 2003 I went on a wolf hunt at Savage Encounters. Savage had done a lot of hard work setting bait piles and hunting shacks up. I saw 14 coyotes and 1 wolf by the 4th day of the hunt. I shot a black colored wolf on the 4th day that weighed approximately 140 lbs. This wolf ended up scoring as the # 15 wolf skull in the world (SCI scoring system). This was the most exciting thing that I have ever done hunting. It was unbelievable!!! I have been in many newspapers and magazines with this wolf, and even wrote a story about it for a magazine. I have always wanted to be in magazines, etc. and Savage Encounters helped me get there. The best thing that Savage Encounters did was on the day after I shot my wolf. We took almost a full day to get to a scenic location with the mountains in the background so I could have some great pictures. The pictures are awesome, and make me think of that day whenever I look at them. A couple of my friends went on a Black Bear hunt in May of 2003 and came home with 2 bear, and one was over 400 pounds. They were very thrilled with the hunt, and plan on a return trip to hunt with Savage again. Savage Encounters is a great operation all the way around. If you are a serious hunter and want to find a serious guide you should check Savage Encounters out.
