Would Recommend: Not at the current prices

Overall Impression: Overpriced

Overall, I thought the hunt was overpriced. I saw lots of elk, no shots though. Elk were of the smaller 5x5 type, 2 ˝ yr. old. Mark was very up front about this before I booked. Although 8 out of 12 hunters harvested elk, it really depended on the guide that you were with. Mark guided 5 successful hunters, Lee (2) and Jerry (1). All the guides was very personable, and the food good. Mark is somewhat of the camp dictator. The other guides are afraid to do anything without Mark’s prior approval. Even moving the truck 30’ ahead an OK had to be gotten. Mark isn’t afraid to voice his loud disapproval to the guides or the other hunters. I thought this to be very unprofessional. When elk were spotted, the guides didn’t want to stalk the elk for fear that Mark would disapprove. I guess if they came close to the truck, we may have been able to shoot. We lost one morning chasing poachers, the rest were spent glassing for elk in the truck so that Mark and/or Lee could be on them in the next hunt. I was luck enough to have a guide with a 4-door rig. Others were cramped in the front seat of a pickup. Tight quarters for three 225+ lb. men and gear. I wouldn’t recommend this hunt at current prices, unless you could guarantee to hunt with Mark or Lee. Otherwise you would be far better off to go somewhere and get a trophy for the same money.
