Overall Impression: lousy

Outfitter canceled hunt on fourth day of a ten day hunt. he kept payment in full and refused to provide even a partial refund for the time that was lost. the contract stated cancelation due to circumstances (weather) beyond control of outfitter will receive a full refund (clause #10). i only asked for a partial refund and was denied. i spent only 2 days on the mountain actually hunting and 2 days sitting in base camp. i did see one small goat that i elected to pass on. i paid $4,500 for a ten day hunt. as a result of the outfitters decision not to continue the hunt due to incoming bad weather (which never came) i incurred $500 extra expenses due to early unplanned departure (changing 2 plane tickets, hotel, charter flight, etc.). i have been on many guided hunts and have never had an outfitter quit on me like this. The guide, packer and myself all put out 100%, only to have the plug pulled on us. i do expect the contracted # of days paid for and agreed to in writing not for the outfitter to quit early and end his season. if anyone has any questions contact me i can provide 2 witnesses that were in camp and paid receipts for all expenses. if u don't want to be ripped off, *don't see alaska with jim h. keeline, inc.* john burke
