Overall Impression: worst hunt ever

This was the worst hunting experience I've ever encountered. Mr. Weimer and Dale Purcell (former owner) both lied to me about: hunting land, accommodations, kill rate, quantity of legal bulls, and accessibility. We were supposed to be hunting on private land; we hunted on public land with hundreds of hunters. Every where you looked there was florescent orange. We were supposed to be 4 in a cabin; we were 12 in a tiny 10 x 24 bunk house. We were told the kill rate was about 85% during the 2nd rifle season; not one of the 12 guided hunters in camp killed an elk. We were told to expect to get a shot at a legal bull; No one in camp got a shot at an elk, period. Camp was one mile from the divide road (between area 61 and 62)down a total mud road that was 14" deep of mud. We had to drive it twice a day (to and from hunting) to get to our hunting areas which required an hours ride. So we lost 2 hours of hunting time each day. Please contact me if you are considering a hunt with Sunset Canyon Outfitters. I will tell you the truth about this outfitter. Bruce Alpart, (518) 672-7392 or email me at bea@taconic.net
