Review Information

Hunter: Don Markese



Would Recommend: I dont think so

Overall Impression: C-

I think realistically your average bull shot in camp is going to be a 250-290 inch bull. There were 7 of us and no one got an elk one was wounded though. The terrain there is HELL you’re climbing your BUT off everyday and it makes it very hard to hunt. The spots you hunt in are the same spots the guys the week before you hunted in and the guys before them and so on.

Outfitter Response: Please be aware that in 2011 HGO was sold. There are new owners. If you would like references from the new owners please contact us at karen@hgoid.com or www.hgoid.com
