Overall Impression: Poor

My Hunting Partner and I had Arranged To Stay in the main lodge and pre paid substantially More for this Accomodation.When we Got to the ranch I noticed 4 other hunters pull in with the outfitters brother. These hunters were race horse people and acted like big shots.We got bumped to a spike camp with sub standerd accomodations.While hunting we were encoraged to shoot the first buck we saw a small 3x3 but we passed.Later I had three 4x4 bucks standing in the open side by side.The guide told me to shoot the one in the middle the smallest of the three. The one on the right was the best buck 26-28 inch wide 4x4. The left was a good buck 5x5 24 inch Later shot by one of the big shots. The big buck was obviously being saved for the race horse big shot who spent his time on a cell phone keeping track of his races and bets.The big buck was later crippled after being shot in the hind quarters and never recovered . My partner did get a respectable buck. I see that powder horn outfitters now has a web site but I dont Recomend Them as after discussing the accomodations situation the outfitter did not refund any of our money and expected a tip.

Outfitter Response: Mr. Perkins paid for the spike camp and not for the lodge. He was not bumped to a different accommodation. And in no way would a Powder Horn Outfitters owner or guide ever ask for a tip. Sounds like he just didn't like the other guests in camp, the racehorse people. If they were having private phone conversations, it was rude of Mr. Perkins to eavesdrop. I tried to call Mr. Perkins today in response to his review and could only get an answering machine. Respectfully, Darwin Powers, Powder Horn Outfitters
