In short it was great Outfitter, great Game, great Food, great Time! I packed leaning towards heavier weight clothing, but didn't pack enough light weight clothing. Temperatures swung from high 70's down to below freezing with wind chill. I shipped my bow down and back via FEDEX which saved me $120.00 from taking it on the plane (Continental Airlines would have charged $100 each way). I should have taken one of the bow "holsters" that allows you to rest your bow on your thigh while spotting and stalking.
