Overall Impression: Very Good

This was a post-rut blackpowder hunt, but the weather did not agree with the hunt! Very hot the entire time (unusual), which caused the movement of the elk to be rather low during the day. I passed on a nice 5X5 the 2nd day, could not get a shot on a very nice 5X5 that stood behind a tree for half an hour the 3rd day, and got a shot off at a 5X5 the 5th day which, well, ...it was my fault. Great hunt with a great bunch of guys. I was overwhelmed a couple of times with the amount of attention to getting my elk and the huge effort by everyone on staff to help out. The only draw back about the hunt was that I felt bad for Lee and his crew that I did not get an elk after all the work and effort they put into it. I am re-booking with him for a future hunt. If you want a really fun hunt ask for the one that Dirty Harry is the cook! And listen to what Baba (former outfitter that helps out) has to say. These guys KNOW elk and elk hunting. You will not go wrong here. Email me anytime for specifics.
