Overall Impression: EXCELLENT

This was my first Elk hunt so I had nothing to gauge the hunt by in comparison to other Outfitters, except my own awesome experience during the hunt, & the assurance of other hunters in camp,who had been on guided hunts before, that this was a top notch outfit. Unfortunately,this was a muzzleloader hunt in late November, & the weather didn't cooperate, & dump enough snow to drive the big bulls down from their hidey holes. I felt that everyone on the staff worked as hard as possible to find animals. I had a cow w/calf close enough to spit on,& it was awesome. Elk in camp during the night. We moved extensively trying to locate Bulls, & I feel that the utmost effort was put forth by all the staff in camp to make this a great hunt. I have already booked a rifle hunt for Oct.,2008, with the gentlemen who shared camp w/me. One of them shot his first Elk, a 4x3 Raghorn, but nonetheless, an awesome critter, & a trophy to him.
