Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: Good

Outfitter gave us an hour and a half lecture on how to hunt and general camp rules before we left his house,even down to the point of how to wipe my own rear end, no kidding, he told us to fold a paper towel in quarters so as to save him toilet paper. As for game,not very good,but there were a pack of 8 wolves in the area. My guide was excellent,tried his hardest.
