Just got home from a guided Elk hunt with this outfitter. Myself and three buddies wasted $11,500 on this con-artist. This business used to be owned by Purcell brothers (about two years ago). We booked our trip with Dale Purcell and found out at the last minute that our hunt was with Sunset Canyon Outfitters. We were told that we would be in a cabin of four, it was twelve. We were told we would shoot at a range before the hunt to check our sight in, a couple of guys shot off-hand through the middle of camp at a paper plate! The accomodations were extremely dirty, smelly and muddy! Of all the hunters in camp on a guided Bull Elk hunt, NONE ever saw a single legal Bull Elk. NEVER SAW ONE AT ANY DISTANCE!!!!!!! Everybody saw lots and lots of other hunters. You will be on public land with this guide. My GPS totaled 27.8 walking miles for the five days of hunting without even seeing one! I got food poisoning on the last night and vomitted during the night. My guide had NEVER guided during rifle season in his life. One of the other guides drank beer all day and drove my hunting buddy back to camp while drunk! If you have a deposit in, GET IT BACK!!!! If your thinking about this outfitter, DON'T DO IT!!! Please feel free to contact me and I'll gladly send you pictures and contact information for other hunters that were in camp.
