Would Recommend: no

Overall Impression: poor

Master Guide Jeff Welch forgot to advise me to purchase the Alaska locking game tag prior to heading into the field. Thus we lost one day of hunting. He tried to blame this on me and got into a loud shouting match with me infront of my wife and the sub guide. Welch even screwed his own sug guide - dale stratton out of $700. He was supposed to take my wife fishing for 7 days at $200/day. He only took her 3 half days and was rude and used profanity contantly at her. He is an anti social personality disorder that is a danger to himself and others. He had no operable VHF radio for emergency, overall condition of camp was dirty, filthy, run dwon and in need of serious repair. Proper life jackets were not alwauys in the skiff. He had no customer service skills at all! Despite me paying $5,000 for the hunt and $1400 for my wife. Do not ever book a hunt with Jeff Welch of Welch Brothers Guide Service on Kodiak Island Alaska. He refused to provide a written contract even thoug a 50% deposit was paid 6 months in advance - a direct violation of Alaska Big Game and Commerical sercies board regulations. He also did not have adequate heat during the entire trip. He is currently under idnvestigation by the Alaska Attorney Genrals Office for these associated violations and the case has been referred to the Board of The Alaska Big Game and Commercial Services Board for investigation, as of January 2009 - hunt occured in October 2008.
