Overall Impression: see Comment

Boat was base camp. I told Bruce Parker that I wanted a Billie. He assured me that after 17 years of experience he could identify a Billie from a Nanny. On the 2nd morning of a 7 day hunt he directed me to shoot a goat that he said was a Billie. It was a Nanny. I paid $11,000 for this hunt and his '09 price was going to $13,500. He offered me a new hunt in '10 for $11,000 which I refused. He then offered me a half price hunt but only if a cancellation occured wherein the hunter that cancelled had already paid a non-refundable 50% deposit. He would not give me a specific time frame as it depended on a cancellation that was 50% paid. The error was 100% his yet he would not offer a future hunt at a mutually acceptable fee.
