Would Recommend: Yes

Overall Impression: well worth it

I booked this hunt with a buddy. We shared the camp with 12 others. We got along really good. We hunted active baits that were in great areas. If the bait didn't get hit the after 2 days we were moved. I saw a good size bear the first 5 minutes of the hunt and never raised the gun. THe next to last day I got a huge 300lb boar. My buddy got a good size sow. Out of 14 hunters 12 got bears, 1 we couldn't fnd and the other 1 didn't get a bear. He said it was his 10th trip and was holding out for a 400lb bear since he got one every year for the last 10 years. I look forward to going back, Don is first class guy and the food is excellent. I had a great time.
