Review Information

Hunter: Gary Robidoux



Would Recommend: Absolutely Not

Overall Impression: N/A

The reason for so many N/A's is that our hunt never materialized as planned. We placed a $900.00 deposit for a fall muzzleloader hunt for this past year 2006. They payment was non refundable by contract and that was clearly understood.The payment was made in spring of 2005. Our group leader who made the arrangements with Larry the owner ended up having serious and unavoidable back surgery. In addition his wifes employer move the company to New Jersey unexpectedly.Needless to say they had to deal with the surgery and sell off most of their assets and move 3 states away while in recovery. This prevented my good friend from physically being able to participate in our scheduled hunt.When presented with our situation the owner of Winter Hawk (Larry) Stated that if he could re-book our slots he would refund our deposits. He further indicated that it shouldn't be a problem.As time went on we heard nothing. E-Mails recieved no response, and letters un answered. At the show in Penn.outside of Harrisburg I was surprise to see Winter Hawk there. I was informed by the representative that they had a fully booked and fairly successful muzzleloader season in the fall of 2006. When we identified ourselves and presented our situation the rep had no answers. He took down my address and information and promised a reply.As usual there has been no response. I guess the integrity of a mans word in Colorado is worth about $2700.00. In Massachusetts a mans word is "free" and when given it is "KEPT". We understand what the contract says, and realize we are contractually owed nothing. If he had offered a portion of the deposit we would have considered that very honorable.If he admitted making the offer by mistake or without thinking it through would at least be somewhat honorable.Contracts are one thing but in life bad things happen when you don't expect it. To blow smoke up our backside and show no compassion for unexpected misfortunes for a man who is still recovering from surgery is just plain shameful especially when there were no finacial losses.I find no honor in this outfit.
