Review Information

Hunter: William Melton



Would Recommend: No - STAY AWAY

Overall Impression: A JOKE

First of all, just because an outfitter is recommended by NAHC and featured in magazine ads (for Polaris), does not mean they can provide a decent hunt. This was a lodge hunt - lodge is a misnomer, this was a garage closed in with some nast carpet and dusty sofas thrown in for good measure. The guides had as much hunting experiance as a New York cab driver. Some had never even hunted elk. They suggest they have exclusive acces to more than 23,000 acres, however 16,000 of it is National Forest with public access close by. I would not recommend this hunt to anyone.
