Would Recommend: Definitely

Overall Impression: Excellent

I initially contacted Troy in '04 for an '05 moose hunt after a recommendation. The area he was hunting went to a draw and I was unsuccessful in drawing a tag so we talked about waiting until '06 or another hunt. I decided to hunt Dall sheep after checking his references for that species. I wanted to hunt the opening 10 days of the season but Troy already had another hunter lined up. He arranged for another registered guide, Shawn Stone (Greatland Outfitters), to guide me. Shawn worked with Troy at another outfit when they were both starting out. I checked out Shawn's references too and was likewise satisfied. This was a very physically demanding hunt and in the end it was successful. Troy's other client was also successful. I can say that my communication with Troy and Shawn before the hunt, during the hunt and after the hunt was great; and, they both talked to me about any concern I had. I still talk to Troy on occassion and would have no problem recommending either him or Shawn.
