Would Recommend: Noooooooo!

Overall Impression: terribly overrated

Hunted there in Sept. of 08. 15 hunters shot 1 bear. 85LBS. 11 guys didnt even see a bear. Rude,arrogant,know it all, outfitter,gave very little effort, and plenty of excuses.Even blamed us, his paying clients,for being sloppy hunters,thats why nobody saw any bear.Lots of ATV and truck traffic every night,close to our stands.Overall, a terrible hunt! I would not recomend this guy to my worst enemy.by the way, after returning home, we discovered, on the internet,that this guy had been arrested, along with his wife and son in Alaska, for a ton of hunting and fishing violations,totaling196,000 in fines and 300 days of jail time.They plea bargained their way out of some of it.Still, overall,a real disgrace to the outfitting fraternity.
