Would Recommend: NO

Overall Impression: Very Bad - NOT recommended

I participated in a combo antelope/ mule deer hunt with Bruce Ferri of Canyon Creek Outfitters October 2008. The hunt was probably as bad as things could have went. Guides were very inexperienced, wore jeans while on hunts, urinated in the middle of trails, and took a 4-HOUR break in the middle of the day to eat lunch and nap! Living conditions were horrible; flys, spiders, and bees were everywhere. Bruce supposedly fired the two guides leading my group of 3 hunters, but then abandoned us the rest of our trip. No more of his guides showed us around - the only thing Bruce did was point out to us where "Walk-In" hunting areas were on a map - and then left. We were promised a full refund of our trip, which was $3250, and we have not received any of that. Furthermore, Bruce was informing us the money was coming, and he was taking out a loan just to pay us off, and checks would be sent Certified Mail. He told us that 2 1/2 months ago. Also, we have heard from the Wyoming Board of Outfitters that Canyon Creek IS NO LONGER LICENSED, and that our group has not been the only ones who have been cheated out of a very expensive hunt. Please contact me or my father (Steve) who was on this trip with me if needed.
